Canyon Lake Hawks continue their climb into the light of day and their loss showed better things might be on the horizon after a tough loss to Fredericksburg, 4-3 on Friday.
“Our effort was outstanding and I think they are finally getting it,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant started. “The young guys are feeling comfortable and are laying a good foundation…..we’re still young and we just needed a couple of breaks.”
The Billies started first with 3 singles in the first with an error thrown in for seasoning and Canyon Lake started in a hole, 2-0.
CL’s first inning showed promise with a lead-off double by Cade Dunavant and Lee Stafford was hit by a pitch that had their first two batters own for some Hawk payback.
A fielder’s choice and then a caught stealing on Hayden Reed trying to advance to 3rd base helped keep CL still needing some runs. The double steal was successful for only one of the runners and a CJ Parrish pop out ended this frame.
Avery Montgomery was on the mound after a great outing last week in Hondo. His night got back on track after allowing two more singles the next inning.
