Carter Williams, Dalton Stromquist, Mario Aguilar and Jacob Holland taking a breather.


Canyon Lake’s Junior Varsity set the stage for the upcoming Varsity tilt on this night with a 4 point (much worse than the final score) win against Wimberley’s JV, 52-48.

It would be a good night at the Hawk Nest when CLJV took care of business after a workmanlike game as these Hawks held an 11 halftime advantage, 25-14.

Defense was the name of this game in those first 3 quarters as that 2nd stanza saw the Hawks dropping droppings (not a misprint) on the Texan’s offense holding them to one field goal.

“The kids played to their potential, and we still have room for improvement,” Head JV Coach Javarius Smith surmised. “I told the kids before the game that we need to be locked in and play our best no matter what our opponent’s jersey says. The battle of the backbone is a big part of Canyon Lake sports history, so the kids have a little more giddy up when we play those guys.”

                             Go Hawks!!

That certainly played out as this turned out to be a team affair with 4 of those Hawk starters finished with double digit scoring and one player just one field goal away from making that fraternity  to 5 inductees.

Ben Parma turned on his offensive skills during that 4th quarter with his 8 points which had half of that total coming as a result of his shot that brought rain from beyond the arc while being fouled for that coveted 4 point play.

Guard Gavin Cano directed the offense with floaters and dishing the ball scoring 10 points.

Eli Hammons (11 points) used his size to control the paint while Josh Rowe and Wyatt Sims each contributed a combined 21 points with pinpoint accuracy.

The Hawks did have a lapse as they went prevent defense to end this battle which will usually allow a team to amass enough points that can make that final score look much closer than what actually happen.

But a win is a win and now Canyon Lake’s Junior Varsity will look to build on this conquest as they have one more contest before the 2nd round of district games next Tuesday at the Hawk Nest.

Way to Go JV Hawks!!

The Lake’s Varsity helped their chances of making the post season after coming from behind to beat Wimberley, 47-46. The win was important as the Hawks have just one remaining game during the first round of district battles.

Hit Man says way to get rid of those Pests.

That game will come nest Tuesday against Navarro who is presently tied with Freddie still looking for their first district win.

In this win, The Lake, now stands with a 3-2 record and bragging rights on those two teams right below them in the standings jockeying for position for those coveted 4 post-season spots.

The HoHum – Cold – Microwave Hot Hawks started with a game that had both participants with a turnover prone start. But CL was able to win this first phase, 9-7 and was highlighted when Mario Aguilar scored his first points with an old time 3 point play after being fouled on his jumper and free throw.

During the 2nd quarter both teams still had a hard time finding the bottom of the net but Aguilar’s steal and layup coaxed a 9 point lead, 16-7 with 2:15 still left on the first half clock.

CL’s defense was on fire which is one of those basketball adages that ‘defense can be a constant on the hardwood’. That was the motif during this period until that last 30 seconds when CL left their guard down allowing two quick baskets.

Before those last shots, The Lake had held the Texans without a point for 8:30 minutes.

Now, welcome to CL’s biggest problem (ice cold 3rd period) so far this season, when Wimberley came out of their halftime break on fire and finished this quarter scoring 29 points and enjoying an eight point lead, 40-32.

Put into perspective that these Texans had scored a total of 17 points for 3 quarters but after that 3rd stanza it almost clip these Hawk’s wings.

WHS would continue that barrage starting the final 8 minutes upping their lead to 11 points, 43-32 on a corner 3 pointer with 6:10 left on the timer.

With a back and forth affair and then the Texan’s second 11 point advantage with a 1 minute being drained and The Lake staring at the scoreboard down, 45-34.

So with a ho-hum first half and then an ice-cold 3rd quarter your Hawks finally put together a remarkable microwave hot moment both offensively and defensively for the rest of this period  outscoring their visitors, 11-1 to end this game with a win starting at that 5:10 mark.

Canyon Lake ‘Hawk’ Proud!!

That Wimberley player was perfect before that missed free throw. He had made 8 consecutive foul shots and then a miss that left this game in the Hawks hands for a win.

Canyon Lake can now take care of business this Tuesday and finish the first round with a 4-2 record and an inside track for punching a ticket for the post-season. Also remember that CL has just 2 home games remaining with this Navarro Tuesday contest and then Boerne during the 2nd round of district.

Ho-Hum….Ice Cold…. Microwave Hot Hawks like their food hot!! Go Hawks!!
