Canyon Lake took one on the chin from Somerset as the Bulldog’s bite was bigger than their bark in this loss, 63-45.

“It was a learning experience,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman said while trying to shed some positive vibes into this evening’s game. “We did have some players that had good individual effort.”

The game started as if CL would make a statement as the Hawks fought back from an early 5 point deficit to an, 18-15 lead as Ryner Martin sank a 3 pointer as time ran out in that first stanza.

This contest continued to be nip and tuck in the second quarter as Canyon Lake started slow but worked back into the game trailing by 6 points going into halftime.

In the 2nd half, Somerset scored the first basket for an 8 point lead when Rory Preiss sank a 3 pointer and then converted a Bulldog turnover to a quick bucket from Bennie Brownlee reducing the lead to a manageable, 38-35 contest.

The Hawks would score just 2 more points in the quarter and that was after a 15 point Somerset run making this outcome a forgone conclusion as the window dressing was not impressive enough to make the Bulldogs tuck their tails.

Canyon Lake was led in scoring by Rory Preiss with 11 points and the second half would have the Hawks shooting blanks scoring 15 points which would not even reach that first quarter output.

A lot of turnovers and missed lay ups as the Hawks could not fly and eventually had Bulldog teeth marks all over as nothing was sharp in those last 3 quarters of play.

One stat that stuck out in this game was Somerset making CL pay scoring 20 points off of turnovers while the Hawks would only cash in with 8 points.

Canyon Lake will not have much time to prepare as they will now travel to the Marion Tournament this Friday and Saturday in hopes of righting their ship that sunk on Tuesday night.

Go Hawks!!
