FHS boys’ soccer now 5-6-2 on season after road games

By Scott Allen

 

Playing a couple of road games after a week of no play, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team received a win and a loss, resulting in a 5-6-2 season record.

On Friday, Feb. 12, the boys lost to Liberty Hill, 3-2.

Head coach Shannon Petsch said the momentum of the game switched all night.

“Liberty Hill went up 1-0 early in the second half and then we put the next two in to go up 2-1,” Petsch said. “Liberty Hill tied it up and then went up 3-2 with two minutes left in the game.”

Petsch said the game was tough without a starting goalie who was out due to a red card he received the previous week.

Bomb scare causes Harper baseball scrimmage in Blanco to be canceled

A not-so-funny-thing happened to Harper’s baseball team on its way to Blanco High School for a scrimmage.

“We got a phone call while we were on the way to the game right before we got to Fredericksburg from our superintendent (Chris Stevenson) telling us that the game was cancelled due to a bomb scare in Blanco,” said Harper head baseball coach Scott Lake.

Lake said they immediately turned the bus around and returned to their school where they held an intra-squad scrimmage on their home field.
