Canyon Lake got there first win over Llano on Monday as the Hawks stung the Yellowjackets, 59-40.

“We came out early and got into a full-court man,” Head Basketball Coach Lucas Chapman stated. “That led to some turnovers and easy baskets….we really attacked the zone well early on and got some points in the paint.”

Thirteen of the 15 players scored in this game as the points were spread over the whole court much like the press wreaked havoc on Llano as CL held Llano to just 3 points to start the game.

Heath McDonough and Will Gray both finished with 9 points while Brandon Ward and Jacob Ramirez coming in with 8 a piece.

“We were playing well on offense when we were patient attacking their zone,” Chapman continued. “For a stretch there in the second quarter we started to force things into the paint which led to some turnovers and helped Llano to get on a run.”

Canyon Lake did finish with 23 turnovers in this game while also struggling from beyond the arc after making 5 of 24 shots.

CL did hold the Yellowjackets to a combined 7 points for the first and third quarters allowing enough separation in this game for that final score.

“Defensively, we forced a lot of turnovers and got Llano out of rhythm,” Chapman closed. “We were able to turn our defense into offense.”

Canyon Lake did have a good thanksgiving day as the Hawks were able to get season highs with 18 steals and 12 assists.

Those type of numbers will lead to wins as Canyon Lake goes into their Thanksgiving Feast.

Go Hawks!!
