The boys lost a close game 3-0 to Snow Canyon March 27, but nobody can keep this Canyon View team down for long.
The Falcons had lost three of their last four games after going on their longest winning streak of the season with six victories in a row. The loss facing the Warriors would make it four losses in the last five games and it looked like Canyon View was falling into a slump at the beginning of the game March 27.
The way the Falcons were hitting was very uncharacteristic of the boys and the whole team could tell that the normal groove the team possessed was being thrown off.
“We didn’t swing it very well,” Canyon View pitcher Kameron King said. “It seemed like every time we would get a good hit, or start getting into somewhat of a groove, the ball would go right to Snow Canyon, and that was really tough to go through the whole game.”
The Falcons also had a couple of costly errors on the game that Snow Canyon took full advantage of. The defense of Snow Canyon was playing great against the Falcon powerhouse and held the Falcons to no scored runs, the first time Canyon View has failed to score at least one run all season.
The Warriors scored their first run in the fourth and then topped the game with another two runs in the seventh to seal the game.
The next game for the Falcons was a game on the road against Pine View last Friday, and the Falcons looked like the old team that went on a six game winning streak. The Falcons were hot right from the start of the game, putting up four runs in the first inning. King had a three run homerun his first at bat and the defense for the Falcons was fantastic.
“It feels good to get a homerun,” King said. “It’s even better when our defense is playing as stellar as they did.”
The game didn’t last very long as Canyon View easily won the game 11-1 and did it in five innings with the ten run rule in force.
Canyon View plays its next game at Dixie Thursday.
