A season filled with lofty expectations came to a crashing halt Friday evening for the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team, who missed the postseason with a 17-14 home loss to Taylor.
The Ducks (2-8, 2-3 district), who won their final two contests of the season, will clinch the fourth and final playoff spot in District 14-4A Division I behind Liberty Hill (8-2, 5-0), Boerne (8-2, 4-1) and Canyon Lake (4-6, 2-3).
“It was very disappointing, but I’m proud of the kids for their heart and their fight,” head coach Lance Moffett said Monday. “They faced a huge amount of adversity this year and never quit coming. That says a lot to their character and to what we have hopefully instilled in them.”
“We’re a band of brothers,” senior quarterback Kyle Grona said after the game Friday. “We bleed, we sweat and we cry together. We love each other and it really shows.”
