Lady Hawks Lose in Last Minute while the Boys also take a Loss

Canyon Lake Lady Hawks made their game very interesting as they closed a 13 point La Vernia lead and tied it up with just one minute left in the game.

Senior Kyndall Drum finishes her last game with 21 points as the Hawks just missed a chance for a win.

Senior Kyndall Drum finishes her last game with 21 points as the Hawks just missed a chance for a win.

Senior Kyndall Drum was the main instrumental piece that forged the comeback.

“I was angry,” Drum beat. “I did not want to end the season the way the game was going and so I just wanted to help as much as I could.”

Help she did as Drum was the tallest person on the floor for most of this game and La Vernia did not have an answer for her inside play as the Hawks finally started feeding Drum the ball and a comeback was started.

The Hawks started their play inside while La Vernia’s three point shooting accuracy fell in that second half.

Drum finished the year with another double-double as she also snatched 10 rebounds to finish her career as a Hawk.

A few mistakes in that final minute of play sealed Canyon Lake’s loss, but this young team did make a good run for that final playoff spot.

Freshman and Sophomores have played an important roll for this year’s edition and with another year of maturity, this team can certainly become a force in the seasons to come.

Improvements with handling the ball as well as passing will certainly lower the turnover problem that plagued this team.

Two years ago, Kyndall Drum had a horrid free throw percentage and she worked on that part of her game and shot over 50% for her senior year.

Little things can become bigger for this team as a bigger finish next year will hopefully result in playoffs for Canyon Lake.

Thanks for your year and The ReSporter can hardly wait for next year’s edition.

============================================

Canyon Lake played their game with La Vernia much better than their last game, but the end result still was a loss to this very tall Bear’s team.

Junior Brandon Ward gets hot scoring 18 points in game with La Vernia

Junior Brandon Ward gets hot scoring 18 points in game with La Vernia

The Hawks had a better percentage of shooting from beyond the arc which helped CL in keeping this game closer than expected.

Junior Brandon Ward was on fire for this game as he finished with 18 points as his shots came from outside, while driving to the basket, and free throw line.

“I knew I was going to have my shot in warming up,” Ward said. “When I made my first three pointer then that just helped my confidence and allowed me to play at a higher level.”

Senior Garrett Winters was the other Hawk to finish in double figures scoring 10 point in the loss where Winters (70) also climbed up the 3 point shooting ladder by only trailing Andrew Riali (122) and Cole Green (77).

Canyon Lake did get into foul trouble as Ward and Skyler Tschoepe both sat on the pine as La Vernia went on a 13 point run starting in the first quarter and well into the second.

That cold spell helped La Vernia’s lead to grow into a game that would become a catch up affair for the rest of this game to the much taller Bear.

Canyon Lake will now have one more game this season with Yoakum next Tuesday at the Hawk Nest as this year’s edition will bow out with a chance to get three wins in district play.
