Eagles advance to state semifinals

By Danny Hirt —

 

For the ninth time in the school’s 10-year history of TAPPS six-man football, Heritage School will be heading to the semifinal round of the state Division II playoffs, thanks to a 56-0 thumping of Brownwood Victory Life School Saturday on the field at Cherokee High School.

The Eagles will now play the winner of the Granbury North Central Texas Academy versus Lubbock Kingdom Preparatory Academy contest in a game that was rescheduled until earlier this week due to last weekend’s inclement weather.

The results of that contest, the date and the location of the semifinal game were not known at this week’s early press deadline.

On the other side of the brackets, two teams from District 4 (the same league that contains Heritage) — San Antonio Castle Hills and Seguin Lifegate — will face off for a bid to the championship slated for Dec. 7 at Zephyr High School.

FHS to face Gonzales in area round Friday

Prognosticators had 81st-ranked Gonzales pegged as a heavy underdog against 14th-ranked Bellville on Friday, so it came as a shock to high school football coaches and fans across the state of Texas when the Apaches rallied from a 14-point deficit to defeat the Brahmas in the bi-district round Friday.

While the so-called “experts” might have missed on Gonzales, pundits like Texas Football Magazine have been dead wrong all season about the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team, who made the postseason for the first time in six years while winning 10 straight games and clinching the District 27-3A championship.

Both schools will be able to lay claim on a “no one believed in us” mentality on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. as the Billies and Apaches face off in an area round showdown at John Gupton Stadium in Cedar Park.

Billies defeat Somerset 38-27

By Matt Ward —

 

Senior cornerback Matthew McManigle intercepted three passes, while Brayden Beard and Paco Martinez each scored a pair of touchdowns as the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team held off a late rally to defeat Somerset 38-27 Friday night in the bi-district round of the UIL playoffs at Frank Mata Memorial Stadium in San Antonio.

“We’re extremely happy about winning a playoff game,” Fredericksburg head football coach Lance Moffett said Monday. “That’s a big deal against a good program with good players. I told the kids this morning there’s not anybody that’s not good anymore.”

“The whole question last week was are we going to let the excitement of the playoffs get in the way of winning a playoff game,” Moffett said, “I’m extremely proud about the way the kids handled it.”

Eagles win first round playoff game

By Danny Hirt —

 

To put it in the words that Sir Isaac Newton might have spoken: “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”

With gutsy determination, Heritage School managed to retake the lead in the late going, then hold off a last-second scoring effort by host Wichita Falls Notre Dame Catholic School — and TAPPS number one ranked team — to take a 60-58 victory Saturday in the opening round of the TAPPS Division II six-man football playoffs.

The Eagles’ performance was spearheaded by Joe Meek who scored seven touchdowns in the game, six on the ground and one on a pass reception.
