Hawks Fly High Over Gobblers, 61-34

Senior Brandon Ward scored 21 points in game with Cuero

Senior Brandon Ward scored 21 points in game with Cuero

Canyon Lake did what needed to be done to realize their chance for a playoff game by flying away from the Cuero Gobblers on Tuesday night, 61-34.

Brandon Ward was the hot player on this night as he finished with 21 points and making 4 shots from beyond the arc.

The Hawks also had surprise points from Gerrit Wilkins and Sam Langford as these two players combined for 20 point to offset the scoring woes from Rory Preiss and Will Gray.

Canyon Lake is averaging right at 10 points a game from Ward, Preiss, and Gray for district play and having those two players combine with 7 points meant other players would need to step up.

Cuero is not one of the better teams this season so having an off night did not keep CL from their win as these games now come down to a precious few.

Tyler Williams had one of his better rebounding games and led the Hawks pulling down 6 off the boards as Williams had half of CL’s 10 offensive boards.

Keys to this year’s edition has been the reduction of turnovers as that number has continued to reduce and committing only 13 against the Gobblers.

The last two games a total of 25 turnovers which would have been a total for one game in year’s past.

Canyon Lake has also been scoring more as those 61 points was the 13th game this season scoring over 50 points.

Compare that total to the 10 Canyon Lake had last season with more contests to be recorded.

The Hawks will welcome Wimberley to the hardwood this Friday with a quest of taking the Texans and clinching an outright spot in the playoffs.

Come out and support Canyon Lake Hawks!!
