LEANDER — Canyon Lake sent the Hornets to their fourth straight defeat after a 7-0 start to the season, ending Gatesville’s season in the process.

Gatesville (7-4) trailed by just a touchdown at the half and pulled to within one score again at the 4:47 mark of the third quarter, when Jett Truss connected with Derrick Bayer on a 25-yard touchdown throw.

But the Hawks’ clock-churning offense proved to be a problem for Gatesville, keeping the Hornets away from the ball. Canyon Lake (9-2) also picked up a key 29-yard gain on a 4th-and-2 late in the fourth quarter to seal it.
