CL Hawks Have a Methodical Win over East View, 32-19

                Kolten Ramey giving chase to another Quarterback in Hawk win over East View, 32-13.


Canyon Lake’s 15 point second quarter proved to be enough for a methodical win over Georgetown East View as the Hawks go 2-1 in the non-district slate.

                    Let’s Go Hawks!!

“I thought we outplayed them,” Head Coach Charley Drum started. “They have a different brand of football where they are from and we took advantage as we executed on offense tonight. Our kids adapted to their speed and we had not seen that uptempo this year. Our defensive backs stepped up against a good football team.”

The Patriots were able to draw first blood on their opening possession when QB Peyton Adams found Jeremiah Barron in the end zone from 31 yards out. It was a 13 play drive covering 84 yards which proved to be a wake-up call for CL’s defense during the remainder of EV’s offense night not being able to average over 4 yards per snap.

The Lake has struggled offensively to open their first two games this season, but on this night were able to score on 3 of their opening 4 first half drives and an 18-7 point lead going into intermission.

That first Hawk drive started with a bang when James Bates burst through the middle of the line for 57 yards giving CL a first down on the Patriot’s 18 yard line. East View would keep CL from a touchdown by forcing a 31 yard field goal by Dalton Stanley.

It was Stanley’s 3rd field goal of the season as the Hawk’s special teams performed well in this win. “Our special teams really had a good night in all phases of their game…punting, had a field goal, and return team while keeping them (East View) from getting yardage on our kick-offs,” Coach Drum said.

After a Hawk defensive stop the offense used a 13 play drive covering 69 yards. Matthew Soza had the explosive play that set up the score after a 39 yard run that started through the middle before bouncing to the visitor’s sideline to the Patriot’s 5 yard line. Two plays later Stanley would bull over from one yard and a Hawk lead.

                           Go Hawks!!

A Hunter Anderson to Chase Anderson pass play for two points would give CL a, 11-7 advantage early in the 2nd quarter.

A Kolten Ramey sack forced a punt on EV’s next possession but this time the Hawks would stall and Stanley’s punt would pin the Visitors deep at their 5 yard line.

After holding EV another punt would give Canyon Lake enough time for an 81 yard drive and double digit lead going into half-time.

This drive started with a one yarder for Bates followed with a no gain for Hunter Anderson resulting in a 3rd down and 9 yards needed to salvage the drive. Stanley’s next play was bootlegged left and then found Chase Anderson for 13 yards and another set of downs. That word downs would be changed to down after a 67 yard strike on that next snap with the same combo, Stanley to Chase Anderson for a score leaving 2 minutes until half, 18-7.

                              Let’s Go Hawks!!

Another defensive stop would end the half with CL in control and receiving the second half kick-off.

That paid off with a Hawk 63 yard drive with Helijah Johnson doing the most damage with a 30 yard bruising run before getting the call again for a 9 yarder for a Hawk, 25-7 advantage to start the 2nd half.

Johnson had 125 of his 143 yards in that 2nd half of play as the CL started to wear down the Patriots.

Canyon Lake’s defense would continue to dominate with a 10 yard sack on a 4th down desperation try for EV that came up empty. The Hawk’s defensive backfield was huge with an interception (Joe Gonzales) and several pass break-ups headed by Chase Anderson.

“We had a great week of practice,” Anderson said matter of factly. “We watched a lot of film and that prepared us well.”

On Anderson’s two consecutive catches for a quick score to close out the second quarter, “On that first one I was just trying to get to the stick (first down marker) and then our hurry up on that next play had their defense back on their heels and the I just ran as fast as a could for the end zone.”

Helijah Johnson & Chase Anderson played important roles in win over East View!

East View kept fighting and had a defensive stop and then proceeded to drive the field for 69 yards that took 14 plays having all but one being a running play. A score but a loss of the 3rd quarter in precious time gone that ensured a Hawk win after CL answered with a 7 play drive for 52 yards that had Johnson responsible for 45 of that real estate and and clinching score, 32-13.

“Our offensive line turned it up in the 2nd half and got their stuff together,” Johnson quipped. On one rushing play, Johnson would not only get yardage but did some damage to that unfortunate defensive back looking for the tackle.

“Yeah, I saw him on my right and I made a decision as soon as I saw him that I would be going right at him,” Johnson remembered.

Johnson plays a tough game of defense too and when asked if he liked to hit a defensive back trying to tackle he was quick with his answer, “I like putting someone down more when I’m bout to be tackled.”

A methodical win that had a more lethal offense coupled with a defense that continues to play solid with some added special teams bonus plays. That equaled a victory that will help instill confidence going into their next game with an undefeated Alamo Heights (3-0) in San Antonio.

Way to Go Hawks!!
