CL’s Junior Varsity had a lead at halftime but lost all of their steam in that last quarter starting their season on the short end of a 62-50 contest to La Vernia.
“We just ran out of gas,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman quipped. “We did some good stuff and I was very proud on how they competed.”
The season and game started with the Bears scoring the first 10 points before a Tuff Cantu 3 pointer that had a chance for a 4 point play but the free throw fell short. That shot was at the 3 minute mark which helped CL end the first stanza with a 10-4 advantage.
This Hawk JV kept that same energy during the 2nd Quarter with a lead off a Pearse McCullagh drive and score, putting The Lake up, 17-16 with 6 minutes still left to play before halftime.
Canyon Lake scored 19 points during this hot spell. McCullagh shot 50% from the field on 6 shots and made 3 free throws leading the charge. Only 4 turnovers in the 2nd Quarter while taking the lanes with 6 steals helping with some easy lay-ups.
“I was just trying to get to the rim and draw some fouls and get to the free throw line,” McCullagh said.
CL would stay within striking range after trailing, 37-38 after a sweet dish when Cantu found an open Colton Winters for a short jumper.
The Hawks would not get any closer than 6 points until the final horn as this short handed team finally ran out of air.
Matt Taliaferro was an instrumental big man after picking up his brush and lived in the paint affecting shots and cleaning the board with a game high 13 kareems.
“When I got a rebound then I would just kick it back out to get some more shots,” Taliaferro said while looking down on The ReSporter. “I will be working on my blocking out and getting better offensively,”
Taliaferro was responding to what he would be working on to improve his game.
A trio of Hawks finished with double digit scoring with McCullagh leaving the contest with 19 points followed by Winters (13) and Cantu (10).
Cantu was nails from the charity stripe and also chipped in with a game high 5 steals.
Canyon Lake will need to cut down on those turnovers hopefully get some help player wise as the season continues.
The Junior Varsity will be in battle with Blanco this Tuesday with a chance to even their record in the Hawk Nest.
Go JV Hawks!!
