Canyon Lake’s backs are against the wall after losing to Cuero at home Tuesday night, 11-4.

The Hawks could have been in good shape if they had beaten the Gobblers, with a sweep, CL would have had a chance to advance on their own terms.

Now, Canyon Lake will need to rely on other teams to win or lose to open a playoff door for this season.

Two more games on the schedule and then when the dust settles, Canyon Lake will have to be sure their are no hanging chads in order to proceed.

Cuero took the lead in Tuesday’s game with a run in the first inning without recording a hit.

Kelsey Ahrens would then tie the score with a hit that sailed over the fence in right center field and the game was even.

In the third inning, Canyon Lake would lose the lead and game for good after a towering 3- run homer off the bat of the Gobblers catcher that would spell doom for the Hawks.

“We started flat,” Head Coach John Gallagher said disappointedly. “I did not think we would start the game like we did and then errors helped put this game away.”

Canyon Lake did end this contest with 8 hits with Carly Dubois, Kat Weber, and Lauren Mentzer each leading with 2-hits a piece.

The Hawks did have the bases loaded and scored 3 runs in the 6th inning but could not extend the rally as Cuero responded with 2 more runs in the seventh to leave Canyon Lake in a precarious situation now needing help from other teams.

Also, CL, has another date with Wimberley this Friday and then the final game next Tuesday against power house La Vernia.

Daunting would be a good word of explaining how Canyon Lake will need to overcome the hurdles as this season comes to a close.

Go Hawks!!
