Losing a tough game at home on Friday, Jan. 29 against Pleasanton, 1-0, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team has fallen to 4-5-2 on the season.
Head coach Shannon Petsch said the team just couldn’t find any net.
“We spent pretty much about 85 percent of game time on their side of the field,” Petsch said. “I believe we outshot them around 25 times for us and five for them.”
Petsch said the Billies lost their composure and started shooting poorly. He credited Pleasanton for their efforts.
“They played defense, stepped in front of shots and took advantage of the opportunity they had,” Petsch said. “It is going to be a long time until we play again and hopefully we can fix our problems.”
On Tuesday, Jan. 26, the Billies swarmed past Abilene Wylie, 5-1.
Petsch said the team had a great start from the beginning of the game.
