Billie boys soccer season ends in regional finals

By Joshua McKinney

Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer made a deep run into the postseason before its season came to an end Saturday.

The Billies lost to the Liberty Hill Panthers, 5-4, Saturday in the Region IV-4A UIL Championship played at Mission.

It was Fredericksburg’s third game in five days after beating Bandera, 2-1, last Tuesday night in the regional quarterfinals and Hidalgo, 1-0, Friday, in the regional semifinals.

A regional finals exit was not what the Billies had in mind for their trip to South Texas but it was still an unforgettable season for FHS soccer, which won the District 28-4A Championship and made it the regional finals for the second time in five years.

Trailing host San Saba by 15 points (135-120), the Ladyhorns captured first place in the meet’s final event, the 1,600-meter relay, to earn 16 points while San Saba failed to finish in the top four (and thus didn’t earn any points).

Boys' soccer advances to regional semis

Fredericksburg defeated the Bandera Bulldogs 2-1 in the regional quarterfinals Tuesday night at Kerrville Tivy Antler Stadium to advance to the regional semifinals.

FHS will play Hidalgo Friday at McAllen ISD.

The Billies beat Lampasas 3-1 to advance past the area round Friday night at Lake Travis High School.

Coach Shannon Petsch said the two-week off period after a bi-district bye — District 28-4A teams did not have a bi-district opponent due to the lack of a district 27-4A — did not help the district champions play their sharpest in FHS’ playoff opener.

“Our timing was off, our shooting was, our shape was off and so was our decision making,” Petsch said.

The 2015 campaign came to an abrupt end Tuesday evening for the Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ soccer team, which fell to one of the state’s top-ranked 4A schools in Salado, 3-1, Tuesday in the regional quarterfinals at Austin’s Burger Stadium.

“This has been a phenomenal season. The girls are awesome and I couldn't be more proud of the way they played,” head coach Logan Minshew said. “They represented us with unity, hard work and class.”

Fredericksburg allowed an early goal against Salado and were unable to recover, trailing 2-0 near halftime.

“We had a tough road to get to the state tournament. We took care of a top 10 team in Giddings and fell short against number two Salado,” Minshew said. 

The Billies were able to trim the deficit just before the end of the half when Taylor Husfeld found Daisy Flores for a goal to make the game 2-1.
