Rory Preiss is high point scoring 16 points in Hawk’s win over Gonzales

Canyon Lake, with last night’s win over Gonzales, accomplished something never seen on the hard wood with their 4th district win in a season.

The Hawks took care of business beating the Apaches, 59-47 and now sport a 4-3 District 26-4A record going into their game with Navarro this Friday at the Hawk Nest.

Rory Preiss led CL with 16 points while Brandon Ward showed the rest of the Hawks how to score from the charity stripe in scoring 12 points.

Canyon Lake had 51 chances of scoring points from the free throw line and cashed in just 23 times with Ward sinking 10 of those tries.

Another good game on the boards with 47 and 17 of those rebounds came on the offensive side.

Gerrit Wilkins had an excellent game quarterbacking the team with 7 assists as Wilkins has 48 for the season with 5 games remaining.

This win was also a good indicator for a team that has found ways of losing in the past and with a 4-3 district record can now see if Canyon Lake can climb to new heights as they have a legit chance of playing more games after district games cease.

Winning every quarter and keeping those pesky turnovers under 20 also played a roll in this victory.

Canyon Lake will need the Hawk Nation in mass as Navarro brings their first place mantle to town this Friday.

Go Hawks!!
