CL Hawks Need Wins after losing 1 Run Game to Yoakum, 6-5

Unknown

Canyon Lake is now the time for desperation as another one run loss has the Hawks looking at a situation where some help will be needed and wins have to start tomorrow.

“We are playing not to lose instead of playing for a win,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We worked hard and our effort was there.”

CL still has a mathematical shot for the playoffs but like someone with cataracts they don’t need to be driving while it is dark outside.

Errors were the culprit again as one of those dastardly mistakes led to 2 runs in the top of the 7th inning and an eventual loss.

Alexis Robinson had just 3 walks but those were all bunched up during the same inning while the Hawks decided to have 2 errors that same inning giving the Bulldogs 4 runs without a hit.

Canyon Lake was a well oiled machine before district started with a good all around game and a lot of confidence.

Now, CL, is just trying to figure out how to have more runs that their opponent when the game ends.

Another game where Canyon Lake had more hits and less runs while the pitchers have reduced their earned run average during this losing streak.

Doesn’t make sense but Softball can be a cruel game and this has become a game where the team continues to search for the right answers but all that is accomplished is another way for a loss.

Two games with Yoakum by the same score and now the Hawks has no choice but having to win some games and become the team that started this season with some quality wins.

Canyon Lake does not have a lot of time to contemplate as they will travel to Gonzales tomorrow for another contest.
