Interesting Facts:
**Of the 6 games that Canyon Lake has failed to score, half of those games came against teams that were a predominantly rushing offense, Navarro, Liberty Hill, and Blanco. Showing how a team that can run has a better understanding of the Slot-T offense.

              Way to Go Hawks!!

**Canyon Lake’s 7 Defensive Shut-Outs have occurred since the 2016 season.

**Last season, Canyon Lake had 3 wins where the offense had their least amount of points scored that is ranked in the top-10 in games played. Two of those contests (Marble Falls 7pts and Blanco 10pts) rank 1st and 2nd.

**The 92 points scored aggregate with Lampasas ranked 3rd all-time in that category behind the 2015 Marion game (105 points) and Taylor (94 points) during the 2016 season. Both were losses. The Smithville battle this past campaign had (83 points) ranking at number 9 on that list.

**Blanco Panthers have 5 of the contests that rank as having the least points aggregate entrenched in the top 10 of Hawk games played.


                        Top 10 Least Points Aggregate
                  1. 07 Marble Falls       2019  Won
