Boys' soccer edges Boerne 4-3

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

Robert Louis Stevenson may have been writing a famous work in 1886, but he could very well have been describing the 2014 Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer team when he penned “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”

On one hand, the Billies show flashes of being the fast-paced, accurate team they are supposed to be, but then they find themselves having to soon pay for costly mistakes made by their more unruly, uncontrollable side, according to FHS Coach Shannon Petsch.

“We are Jekyll and Hyde right now,” he admitted following his squad’s 4-3 district opening win over Boerne on the road on Saturday, Feb. 8.

(Last night’s game at Kerrville Tivy was postponed due to icy weather until tonight at 7 p.m. in Antler Stadium.)

“We are finding ourselves, finally,” Petsch said, “But when things go wrong, it goes wrong.”

Harper boys fall to Medina

By Danny Hirt

Harper varsity boys’ district winning streak came to an end Friday evening when the Longhorns dropped a 64-44 home decision against Medina.

The ’Horns now sport an 8-1 league mark with one more regular season basketball game to go. However, that season is being extended, thanks to the weatherman. Tuesday night’s contest at Mason was postponed until tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 12) due to potentially icy road conditions. Game time will still be 6:30 p.m.

Medina 64, Harper 44

Muddled in a slow first quarter, the Longhorns fell behind early and couldn’t recover as they dropped a 64-44 decision at home to Medina last Friday evening.

Trailing 14-6 after one, Harper dropped back to a nine-point (30-21) deficit at intermission. But the visitors broke away in the third period, outscoring the Longhorns 19-9 during that eight-minute stretch.

Heritage boys topple River City 44-34

By Danny Hirt

Playing four games in a six-day stretch has, for whatever reason, become a common occurrence for the boys’ varsity basketball team from Heritage School.

For the second time during the 2013-14 campaign, the Eagles have faced such a situation, this time coming out winning all four.

During the past week, Heritage bested Gateway on Thursday 60-44; topped San Angelo Cornerstone Saturday, Feb. 6, 68-37; beat Seguin Lifegate Monday evening 45-42, and then completed the sweep by defeating Selma River City Believers 44-34 last night.

Playoff action is just around the corner for the Eagles. However, day, date, time and opponent have yet to be announced.
