By Austin R. Eck

 

Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer split two matches last week.

FHS started the week on Tuesday, Jan. 20, against Liberty Hill and lost, 5-2.

On Friday night, Fredericksburg played host to Uvalde. The Billies’ offense was clicking, and FHS won, 11-1.

The Billies travel to Bandera to open District 29-4A play at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 30.

Against Liberty Hill, Fredericksburg trailed by one goal at the half. FHS was in a position to tie the game, but an offensive error made an easy play for Liberty Hill.

“We gave ourselves many opportunities to win the game, then we would let someone go for an easy score,” coach Shannon Petsch said.
