Billie football topples Brady in road win

By Matt Ward —

 

For Fredericksburg High School varsity football coach Lance Moffett, there’s only one question he’s sick of answering: “What did you say to the kids at halftime?”

After a lack-luster first half saw the Billies tied at Brady 6-6, FHS scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to cruise to a 34-6 road victory Friday night.

“I’m real pleased with the way we finished. I wanted to score a lot more points though,” Moffett said after the game. “If we just put all three phases of the game together (at the same time), we’ll be a great team.”

 

First half woes

Looking at the first half from a statistical perspective, the Billie head coach said his squad should have been way ahead of Brady after dominating total offensive yards 240-78.

Volleyball sweeps Burnet Tuesday

By Matt Ward —

 

Only two matches remain before the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team opens district play at home on Sept. 27 against Bandera.

“We have two tough matches (this week) against New Braunfels Canyon and Smithson Valley,” FHS head coach Jason Roemer said. “Both will be good tests and both will make us play fast and big — the way we will have to play if we expect to compete for a district championship.”

FHS will travel to New Braunfels Canyon Friday at 6 p.m. before hitting the road again Tuesday for a 6:30 p.m. contest at Smithson Valley.

Last night, the Billies swept Burnet on the road 25-17, 25-21, 25-12.

“We seemed a little rusty from having Friday night off last week,” Roemer said. “It had been seven days since we played and it showed a little.”

Fredericksburg High School’s boys and girls varsity cross country teams took first and second place, respectively, Sept. 14 at the Jacob Krebs Cross Country Invitational in Harper, which was renamed to honor the former Longhorn runner who died April 1.

The FHS boys cross country team then received their trophy for winning the event, but did something unusual with it.

Instead of the trophy being displayed for years to come at the FHS athletics trophy display, the entire cross country team signed the trophy and returned it to the Krebs family.

The trophy and invitational are named in memory of Krebs, a Harper runner who died April 1 in a drowning accident. Krebs had enlisted in the Navy and was training to eventually enter the Navy SEAL program.

Netters to face trio of foes this week

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity tennis team is looking to shake off yesterday’s rained out home match against Kerrville Tivy as it heads into three more meets this week, including another run at the Antlers.

On Saturday, Sept. 21, the Billies will host a potential regional team tennis opponent, Hondo, at 8:30 a.m. and then a match against Class-4A Floresville at 1:30 p.m. at the HEB Tennis Center on the FHS campus.

Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 24, Fredericksburg will get another chance to finish off Tivy in a 4 p.m. match at the HEB Tennis Center in Kerrville.

Yesterday afternoon, FHS was on top of the Antlers, 9-5, with five matches still on the court to finish before rain showers forced cancellation for the day around 7:30 p.m.

Kerrville “always matches up very well with us,” said FHS Coach Randall King.

On Saturday, the Billies took two solid wins over Class-5A Cibolo Steele, 10-0 (19-0) and then over Class-4A Schertz Clemens, 10-1 (16-3.)

Harper football falls to Ingram

By Danny Hirt —

 

After falling behind early, Harper spent the rest of the night in an unsuccessful bid to catch up as it dropped a 35-33 decision to visiting Ingram last Friday night in high school football action.

Even a 26-7 fourth quarter surge by the Longhorns could not completely cover an earlier deficit.

Harper (2-1) will try to return to its winning ways Friday, Sept. 20, when the ’Horns travel to Sonora. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

 

Ingram 35, Harper 33

In a game that saw both teams totaling 335 yards in penalties on 35 flags, the Longhorns simply could not get their rhythm flowing as they saw Ingram’s Omar Renteria bull his way over from one and three yards out in the opening period to give the Warriors a 14-0 lead.

Harper volleyball defeats Ingram

By Danny Hirt —

 

While they were stung in a five-game match against Boerne Geneva at home on Friday, Sept. 13, the Harper High School Ladyhorns’ varsity volleyball team responded last night (Tuesday, Sept. 17) by topping Ingram on the road, 25-10, 25-21 and 26-24.

The Ladyhorns (18-6) earned a place in the Top Ten listings for Class 1A schools as determined by the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) in a poll dated Sept. 16.

HHS will next travel to Sonora Friday, Sept. 20, for a 5 p.m. match. The White and Green junior varsity squads will each see action at 4 p.m.

From there, the Ladyhorns will host Llano on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 6 p.m. Meanwhile, the two JV teams will face their Llano counterparts in matches that’ll begin at 5 p.m.

Heritage football outlasts Round Rock Christian

By Danny Hirt —

 

After meeting the challenge presented by visiting Round Rock Christian Academy last Friday to pick up a hard-fought 56-44 victory, the Heritage Eagles know the road doesn’t get any easier.

Explosive San Antonio Castle Hills comes to town this Friday, Sept. 20, for the first six-man football district contest for both schools.

The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m.

“This was a great win for us,” said Heritage head coach Tim Shipman. “We challenged the team after last Friday night (a 48-8 loss to San Antonio FEAST) to not focus on what happens to you but how you react to it. This week, the entire team worked hard on the fundamentals that were exposed a week before.”

Heritage School was victorious in its last two volleyball matches, topping San Antonio Gateway in three games (25-20, 25-23, 25-18) on Thursday, Sept. 12, then besting non-district Our Lady of the Hills in Kerrville Tuesday evening (Sept. 17) by a score of 25-16, 25-7 and 25-17.

The Lady Eagles will now host a pair of matches at Fredericksburg’s First Baptist Church — against Cornerstone on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m., then San Antonio Town East on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 6 p.m.

 

Win over OLH

The Lady Eagles ran their season record to 9-3 (4-2 in district) by taking all three games in Tuesday evening’s match at Our Lady of the Hills in Kerrville.

“For the second match in a row, the Lady Eagles stepped up their game with fewer errors to beat OLH,” said Heritage head coach Carol Bell.

Inside the coaches’ “war room” at Fredericksburg High School, there is an entire board covered in offensive formations and schemes for FHS head varsity football coach Lance Moffett and his staff to decipher a game plan as the Billies prepare for a 7:30 p.m. road game at Brady Friday.

“Going off the film we have, they (the Bulldogs) line up in 27-30 different formations,” Moffett said. “They run the same five or six plays, but out of 27-30 different looks. (Defensive coordinator Bill) Wilder has got his work cut out for him this week.”

Brady utilizes the run-first Slot-T offense, with the added wrinkle of having the quarterback run the offense out of the shotgun formation, giving Bulldog quarterback Joe Scott Pace extra options on each snap.
