Canyon Lake Hawks 4-0 Lampasas Badgers

The Canyon Lake Hawks kicked off the New Year and the 2021 Season with an impressive 4-0 win on the road at Badger Stadium in Lampasas.

                Says Go Hawks!!

Lampasas lost to Wimberley, 0-1 in an exhibition game which speaks volumes on the importance of this win.

The first half saw numerous opportunities for the Hawks, but Canyon Lake entered halftime 0-0.

With 84 seconds into the second half, Alex Gracia showed some flair with a back heel goal after a rebound. Nine minutes later, Collin Pressgrove scored after a misplay by the Badger keeper dropped the ball, giving the Hawks a 2-0 lead.

Josh Sczech scored from 12 yards out one minute later off an assist from Gracia pushing the margin to 3-0. Josh Nelson rounded out the scoring in the 68th minute with an impressive dribble through the box, finishing on the near post.

The defense was anchored by Julian Hernandez and Xavier Espinosa, along with Goalkeeper Shawn Bell, who earned a clean sheet (shut-out) while making four (4) saves.

“Great first game of the 2021 Season, lots to work on, but can’t ever be disappointed in opening the season, on the road, with a shut-out, scoring four goals, and with a victory,” said Canyon Lake Head Coach Cody Schroeder. “We didn’t see everything we wanted to see, but we saw great effort, enthusiasm, energy. Lots of work, but we understand it will be a season long process”

The Hawks start their 2021 Season 1-0-0, and return to action at home this Tuesday, January 5, 2021, hosting San Antonio Christian School, kickoff slated for 6:00 pm.
