Canyon Lake will welcome Austin Eastside Memorial Panthers to the Hawk nest this Friday as CL won their first meeting last year, 63-0.
That was the first shut-out the Hawk defense has had since the school started in 2008.
Eastside is still looking for their first win and scored their first points in last week’s loss to Llano, 49-13.
Last years game featured having a lot of players with a chance to play and show what they are capable of, for future games.
Canyon Lake is presently on a 2 game winning streak as this will be the opening of District 14-4A Division I play. This district has had some good teams making a statement with Fredericksburg with one loss to Wimberley and Boerne winning their game against that same Texan team.
The Greyhounds are undefeated and will be playing at Fredericksburg on Friday while Taylor will have the night off.
CL Hawks will look to keep some momentum and continue to heal some players before a meeting with the rest of the district schools on the horizon.
There were 10 players that had a chance to rush the ball in last year’s game and you can expect much of the same tonight as Eastside continues to get more students into action for the coming years.
Canyon Lake presently has a. 6-1 record when playing Austin schools and that is six wins in a row coming into Friday’s contest.
The Hawks lost their first game with Austin Travis in 2010.
The Hawks next home game will be in two weeks when Fredericksburg comes to town. Another opponent that has raised their bar of competition this season. The last time the Billies had just one loss this far into the season was in 2013. That team finished with a 10-2 record.
That was also the last time the Billies have beaten Canyon Lake and it was a home game.
A lot on the line tonight and in the next 4 weeks as CL will start their stretch run for the games that count.
