Hawks fall 1-0 to Boerne
BOERNE — The Canyon Lake boys soccer team dropped its District 28-4A opener 1-0 Tuesday night in Boerne.
The Hawks (3-9 overall) watched goalkeeper Shawn Bell make a strong save on a penalty kick in the 23rd minute of the match, but the referee ruled that his foot came off the line too early and awarded the Greyhounds a second chance.
Boerne capitalized on the opportunity to take a 1-0 lead and held that slim advantage for the remainder of the contest.
Canyon Lake will have a few more days to prepare for its second league match of the 2020 campaign. Head coach Ryan Tierney’s club is set to host Wimberley at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18.
