Hawks Make History
Canyon Lake made history after taking over the 2nd half and beating Pleasanton, 28-10 on Friday night, Nov. 24 at Gustafson Stadium in San Antonio.
The Hawks will be back in action next Friday, Dec. 1 in Round Rock when they battle against Waco La Vega.
“We weren’t ourselves in that first half,” Head Coach Charley Drum surmised. “Give Pleasanton credit, we were lucky to be down by just 3 points, 10-7 at half.”
The game plan was to win the coin toss and then take seven minutes off the clock to go up, 7-0 in their game with the Eagles. That plan was abruptly stopped after suffering their 4th lost fumble this year. Pleasanton would then take the ball methodically down the field with their passing game and take an early lead, 7-0.
The Eagles used 13 plays to travel 67 yards using the pass on 7 of those snaps. Pleasanton would convert three 3rd down plays and QB Johnny Zamora would complete this drive with a 5 yard run that would jolt CL as they started the game looking at a seven-point deficit.
Canyon Lake had not been behind since the Fredericksburg game and it was the Austin Akins contest being the last time the Hawks had not scored first to start a game. The good news, Canyon Lake, has been victorious in all of the battles mentioned above.
