Softball: Bats Catch a Cold in Loss to Gonzales, 2-1

Go Hawks!!

                         Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake could not get any traction in their loss to Gonzales and go 0-2 to start District 26-4A play.

“I knew this would be a tight game,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We did not execute when we needed to, we played good defense and we pitched well and we also threw two base runners on second, but offensively we were not on.”

The Hawks bats have gone silent with just 3 hits in this contest and failing to get a batter to 3rd base. In fact, that happened just once hence that one run scored on an Apache error.

Alexis Robinson was the losing pitcher but was also having trouble with her strike zone throwing 132 pitches with 59 of those pitches being called a ball.

Robinson did show some resolve by striking out 10 Apaches for giving up just 2 runs.

Canyon Lake has now gone 3 games where the bats have not been potent.

Some good news was having the fielding go a game without any errors.

Catcher Kat Weber also threw out two runners trying to steal and that will also play dividends as the season continues.

Pitching was decent, Fielding was very good, but bats did not make this game.

Canyon Lake went into district with a batting average over .400 but now in their two district games are hitting .176 with just one double.

Now the Hawks will head to Navarro tomorrow and face another good team and a win had now been amplified.

Go Hawks and beat the Panthers!!
