CL Hawks Freshman Sleep Walk in Loss to Pleasanton, 55-46

  Go Hawks

Canyon Lake needed an alarm clock to go off earlier after spotting Pleasanton a 19 point lead that could not be overcome in loss, 55-46.

It was the Hawks JV second loss of the year and a exhausting comeback try came up short after reducing the Eagles lead to 5 points in the 4th quarter.

Most of the scoring came from 3 players, Benjamin Rowe (10), Nicolas Rivera (14), and Zachary Griffin (19) points.

Rivera had 7 steals with all of those appearing in the second half. That alarm clock was 40 to 60 minutes late in waking the Hawks to play the game.

Griffin did finish with a  double-double with 10 rebounds to go with his 19 points. Griffin has to be a light sleeper that allowed him to break the Hawks doldrums.

The dichotomy was striking with 32 points in the second half compared to 14 being scored in that sleepy first half of play.

Canyon Lake’s offense was stymied by the Eagles zone defense as penetration was not happening as the Hawk perimeter just had their pillows ready to attack the goal.

Not much success with attempting just 5 shots in the second quarter. If the Hawks had scored on all those attempts then they still would have lost that 2nd quarter by over 10 points.

When this Hawk Freshman team is awake they can do some damage but having an alarm clock would not hurt in getting Canyon Lake ready for the jump ball for action. Just not much action with accumulating only 24 rebounds in the lackluster affair.

Canyon Lake Freshman will be in action this Friday in Jourdanton as those Bus rides are hard to sleep in and that could bode well for a better start this time.

Wake-Up and Go Hawks!!
