Friday was all about three’s.

The Billies (3-1, 0-0) scored three touchdowns in the third quarter to get win number three against Llano (1-3, 0-0) on the road Friday night.

Coach Lance Moffett liked the way Fredericksburg played in the bounce-back win against Llano.

“I’m extremely happy about the way we played,” Moffett said. “It was the best defensive game we played all season.”

Both teams played a defensive first half, which ended with a 0-0 tie.

Four holding calls on four straight drives and constant pressure from Llano’s defense stymied the Billies’ offense in the first half.

“Sometimes with offense, it takes time to figure it out,” Moffett said. “And they were heating it up a lot, and we had to figure out a way to get it over the top.”

And in the second half, the Billies figured it out.

Another week, another Hill Country rival.

Billie football hits the road to face the Llano Yellowjackets (1-2, 0-0) at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 18 in Llano.

Fredericksburg High School head coach Lance Moffett thinks Llano, under the helm of fourth-year head coach Craig Slaugther, is a team rapidly on the rise.

“I’ve seen them just get better every year in terms of executing his scheme and getting things done the way he wants them done,” Moffett said. “It’s a testament to him and the quality of his program.”

Llano, like Fredericksburg, enters the game after a week three loss. The Yellowjackets lost to Brady, 44-6, on the road last Friday night.

Moffett isn’t letting the lopsided score or Llano’s 1-2 record fool him.

The Billies started hot again but couldn’t seal the deal and it cost them.

Fredericksburg High School varsity football (2-1, 0-0) suffered the team’s first loss of the season to the Burnet Bulldogs (2-1, 0-0), 28-16, on homecoming night, Friday, Sept. 11, at FHS Stadium.

Kyle Reeh scored on a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to bring the game to 28-16 with 2:02 left in the game but Fredericksburg failed to convert the two-point conversion or recover an onside kick-off following the score.

Fredericksburg’s defense stopped Burnet on a three-play drive to get the ball back with a few seconds remaining on the board, but Reeh could only fire off two quick passes before time ran out on the Billies

“For the past two years, we have been the champions of the meet in the boys’ division and last year the girls’ division at this special meet in memory of Jacob Krebs in Harper that began three years ago,” head coach Dan Aldrich said. “It is always an honor to receive the custom eagle trophy created each year for the division winners for the Jacob Krebs Invitational and presented by the family.”

“Last week, we started our season strong at Mason and wanted to continue this impressive start by working on some team chemistry at our meet,” Aldrich said. “Our kids represented the school well and have continued to improve on what our focus is this week.”

At the Jacob Krebs Invitational, the girls ran a two-mile course while the boys ran a 5K distance.
