Fan Feedback — Canyon Lake 26, Blanco Panthers 21

Gerald Elrod sent this in -- Thanks Gerald...Great Stuff!!!

Canyon Lake dominated the first half as Blanco couldn't handle the massive offensive line of Canyon Lake and the hard running of the Canyon Lake running backs. Canyon Lake jumped out to a 14-0 lead and it looked like Blanco's undersized players were gonna give up 7 yard a carry all night. Canyon Lake kicked off to Blanco and Colton Childress returned the kickoff back for a td.

Blanco went into halftime down 14-7 and not able to muster any offense or stop Canyon Lake defensively.   The Panthers came out and drove 75 yards to tie up the game, but Canyon Lake answered on there next series, but the extra point was blocked by Blanco making the score 20 to 14.

Blanco mounted a perfect drive and took the lead 21-20 with 5 minutes left. Canyon Lake connected on a bomb down to the 20 and then later punched it in and failed on the two point conversion for a 26-21 lead. With 3:09 left Blanco marched all the way down to the 1 yard line with 3 seconds left. Blanco's QB threw a perfect pass as time expired and hit the wide open receiver in the hands for what appeared to be the game winner, and the receiver simply dropped it.

Great game, a heartbreaking loss with the drop, but hats off to Canyon Lake.
