TOP 10 ALL-DECADE SPORTING EVENTS

               Let’s Go Hawks!!

The Reporter would like to encourage the readers to go to that earlier entry for the 10th-9th and 8th place write-ups if you are reading this piece for the first time.

These games/events were hard to pick just 10 and then put them in order presented even more contemplation. What the ReSporter thinks are would be according to one person and certainly there would be a different group of 9 out of 10 people with other opinions. Hope you enjoy and use the Links to go back in history to recall these events.

Now the next 3 sports will be presented and a reasons why these games were slotted in this group and what the significance that propelled them to these lofty goals.

We will have a Link to the articles so a reader can go back and have a better rendition of these particular events.

Number 7 Canyon Lakes Boy’s Soccer Win over Gonzales for a berth into the Sweet 16

Now the next Hawk Event comes for the Boys Soccer team that won their 2nd playoff game during the 2017 season against Gonzales.

Signature Homes says, Go Hawks!

That year, The Lake, drew a bye for that first round playoff contest and then pulled off one of the biggest upset in Canyon Lake’s history after a last second kick off the foot of Nash Young in beating a one loss Salado team.

Canyon Lake would then have a date against a Gonzales team at a neutral site that was anything but neutral. The Apaches had a 26 mile jaunt to Yoakum while the Hawks traveled right at 2.5 hours from home for this match-up.

When the stadium was found a huge contingent of Gonzales fans would fill the stands as it was apparent that Soccer was THE sport for this school.

CL was new in this sport with this being the 2nd year of qualifying for a playoff and in that previous season it would be a one and done scenario. In fact, Boys Soccer was the last Hawk Team sport that was able to have a season where a playoff was earned.

There were some years that scoring a goal would be considered a victory in the greater scheme of things.

Now the new kid on the block would have a major hurdle to clear for a chance to qualify for the Regions being held in the Valley. This Hawk Soccer team ended the year with 16 wins which was one win less than CL had added up during their first 6 years of competition.

=====================================================================

NUMBER 6: AREA FOOTBALL WIN OVER PLEASANTON during 2017 Season!

CL’s Football team would have their first 10 win season and this game would be the first that had the Hawks playoff march make it to the 3rd round. There had been 3 previous chances that had all failed in getting to that next rung on the ladder.

 

2010 Hawks beat Burnet      (27-20) and lost to Somerset  (24-25)
2013 Hawks beat Pleasanton  (24-21) and lost to La Grange (8-50)
2014 Hawks beat Waco LaVega (49-26) and lost to Rockport  (21-27) in overtime.

               Let’s Go Hawks!!

So with CL had two chances that would just come up short in those previous tries, but this time Pleasanton would not be able to hold this loaded Hawk team that had a convincing (28-10) win and a date with Waco La Vega in that next round.

This win would give your Hawks their longest winning streak to date at 8 games and finished their year with a 35 point scoring average while giving up just 18 which is still the best defense for a Canyon Lake team.

Canyon Lake went into their halftime down 3 points but would outscore the Eagles, 21-0 in the 2nd Half for this victory.

A Hawk team that would win a District Crown which would give CL a first round date with Gatesville and then Pleasanton giving The Lake their best season to date.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

NUMBER 5: Volleyball’s 2015 season after beating 2nd Place Navarro that clinched a District 26-4A Championship.

This would also be the year that CL would finally not only win a game but a set within a game against the perennial heavyweight of the Hill-Country in Wimberley.

Yes, you read that right, The Lake had not even won a set in all those years of battles as each year the Texans would show two wins coming by, 3-0 sweeps for each district contest year in and year out.

              Way to Go Hawks!!

There was one year that CL was able to get within 2 points but the result was still the same….all the time….

Now the Hawks were able to have a former player from this behemoth school that had been hired as CL’s Coach, in Kim Paisley (now Clemons), and in her 3rd year at the helm she had a team that would finally be able to climb that mountain but would have enough energy to climb an even higher realm in securing The Lake’s first district championship of any kind for all Hawk sports.

It was Navarro, that had the 2nd best record that would pose the bigger threat in seeing if Canyon Lake could finish a magical season by not only winning the crown but finish undefeated.

Upcoming Event Link: CL Hawks vs. Needville

                   Hawk Proud

The Lake had their first Football playoff 10 years ago in just their 2nd year of playing Varsity Football. That team changed a forgettable first year to a stunning 3rd place finish in district play that would have Canyon Lake celebrating the 7th consecutive year of Post-Season play.

Ten years ago, the Hawks played a very good China Spring team and a game that turned out much closer than the casual fan having this newcomer school as a heavy underdog.

That final score, 31-20 which had Canyon Lake with a chance up until the 4th quarter.

This year’s Hawk team will be facing a similar situation as a heavy underdog that a casual fan would have a heavy underdog. CL Hawks will bring their ‘A’ game and will give this Blue Jay team all they can handle.

Go Hawks!!
