Dentists Find Skin on Teeth in Lady Hawks Win, 39-38

The Lady Hawks won a close one over Cuero to stay on the inside track for a chance at playing more games.

“Last night was another example of finding a way to win despite not having our outside shooting on par and also struggling to get to the line,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher recounted. “We feel blessed to have walked away with that win, it was a dog fight.”

Canyon Lake won just one quarter, as the Lady Hawks outscored the Gobblers by 6 points in the 3rd quarter which held up for a win.

Alexa Ramos continues her strong play as she pumped in 13 points with 2 goals coming beyond the 3 point line.

“Alexa (Ramos) and Mia (Riali) were in foul trouble again and that killed us,” Coach Gallagher said. “Ramos is our energy and heartbeat as well as Mia, so we struggled at times to keep the tempo up.”

Ramos continues her climb on the All-Time lists as she is now behind just two players in steals, needing just 8 more to pass Katie Williams who finished her career with 139.

All out hustle from Ramos from steals to assists and everything in between.

Sarah Russell was just one point off from a double digit point total finishing with 9 points, all from beyond the arc.

This CL team has many players not seen on the stat sheet with great numbers but when you add them up you can find the formula on wins that played out on Tuesday.

Seeing Emma Gray return to the line up had to be a good sign as games come to a close.

“Emma was a huge help as far as leadership on the floor,” Coach Gallagher closed. “She did not contribute the way she wanted to point wise but her presence on the floor in the second half was coming and gave the girls a boost.”

Skylar Hurst played a key role with 6 rebounds which led the Hawks in that category.

Another player that is just a constant comes from Senior Sarah Schneider who had 2 blocks and contributed 6 points and 5 rebounds.

Add them up and this win needed just one more point than the host team for a nice bus ride home.

Now Canyon Lake will welcome Wimberley to the Hawk nest this Friday as a big supporting cast of fans will be a welcome sight.

With a win in one of the last two games or a Gonzales loss will secure a playoff slot for Canyon Lake with just two remaining games.

Go Hawks!!
