After a disappointing conclusion to their hotly-contested season opening 40-27 home loss to Burnet, the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team will be looking to unleash their brand of “Fredericksburg football” at upstart San Antonio Memorial this weekend.

Unlike most varsity contests, the Billies and Minutemen will kick off at 7 p.m. Friday evening at San Antonio Mata Stadium, instead of the familiar 7:30 p.m. start time.

Though the Billies have never lost to the Minutemen, Fredericksburg High School head football coach Lance Moffett called Memorial “a team on the rise” after they  defeated Pearsall 31-14 on the road last week for their first victory in two seasons despite gaining 148 yards of total offense on the road.

The Minutemen’s 4-3 defense forced three fumbles and two interceptions against Pearsall to help lead Memorial to victory.

FHS Football Falls To Burnet 40-27

By Matt Ward —

 

“We just needed a little more time.”

Friday night’s season opening loss to Burnet 40-27 is probably the only time Fredericksburg High School head football coach Lance Moffett would have liked a fifth quarter of varsity football.

After working off first-game jitters for many brand new varsity players, the Billies began a comeback the FHS head coach believes could have been pulled off with more time.

“We had them on the hook and we let them off,” Moffett said. “There are a lot of things that we could have done better or differently to put ourselves in the position to be the team that was ahead in the end.”

Two quick touchdown strikes for Burnet proved to be the difference in the contest.

Volleyball Defeats Llano On Road

By Matt Ward —

 

After a 2-6 performance at the Smithson Valley tournament over the weekend, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team got back on the winning track with a four-set victory at Llano Tuesday evening.

Fredericksburg will host Lampasas Friday evening and Liberty Hill Tuesday night for Parents’ Night. Both contests are slated to begin at 6 p.m.

“Considering the injuries we’ve had and the inexperience we’ve had in the line ups, coupled with the tough schedule we’ve been playing,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said Tuesday, “I like the direction we’re headed. I told them tonight after the game that the season is a journey full of ups and downs and it’s about getting up after getting knocked down.” 

 

Win over Llano

Last night, the Billies defeated Llano on the road 23-25, 25-18, 25-12, 25-14 to improve to 13-13 on the season.

Netters To Host Double-Header Saturday

After posting two solid wins over competitors in the past week, Fredericksburg High School’s varsity netters are due to host two more in its first district double-header this Saturday, Sept. 7.

The Billies will serve up 8 a.m. matches against Wimberley and 1 p.m. matches against Boerne on their home courts in this first team tennis season under the auspices of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) after it has been transferred from the care of the Texas Tennis Coaches Association.

After Saturday, FHS will load up and head to the HEB Tennis Center in Kerrville for a 4 p.m. match against third district foe, Bandera, on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Yesterday, the Billies defeated Marble Falls’ Mustangs on home territory, 10-6 (12-7.)

“The match was closer than the score indicates,” said FHS Coach Randall King, adding that FHS had seven super-tie breaks to decide matches, of which it lost four and won three.

Harper Football Defeats Grape Creek 34-14

By Danny Hirt —

 

Despite giving up an early touchdown on a blocked punt to host Grape Creek, the Harper Longhorns managed to take the lead in the second period on the strength of two Jayden Baumann TD runs on the way to a 34-14 win Friday night in San Angelo.

The game was the first football contest of the regular season for both schools.

Harper remains on the road this Friday when it travels to Eldorado for a 7:30 p.m. non-district encounter.

Trailing 8-0 early in the second period, the Longhorns closed the gap with Baumann’s 19-yard run. Briley Jalowy’s point-after kick made the score 8-7 in favor of the hosts. Jalowy connected on all four extra-point kicks as well as nailing field goals of 27 and 35 yards.

For the game, Baumann gained 66 yards on 10 carries, scoring two touchdowns in the process. Meanwhile, Jalowy topped the 100-yard rushing mark with 102 yards on 15 carries and a TD.

Harper cross country to open season Saturday

By Danny Hirt —

 

With the Harper High School cross country schedule opening up Saturday in San Angelo at the annual “ASU Stampede” event held on the campus of Angelo State University, head coach Will Reid knows his teams will provide a mixed bag on the season.

There’ll be a lot of experience on the girls’ side (six of seven members of last year’s state UIL 1A runner-up team that also captured a district title) while the boys’ squad has only one senior but plenty of “state experience,” as the coach calls it.

The “problem” with the half-dozen returning girls is that his 2012 number one runner, Crystal Schlueter, has graduated and is now running for Angelo State University. But the remaining girls from last year — seniors Kayla Inmon, Taylor Reid and Hope Dillon, juniors Sydney Collins, and sophomores Rebekah Lester and Payton Reid — give Coach Reid reason to be optimistic.

Heritage football defeats Atonement 52-7

By Danny Hirt —

 

The Eagles wasted little time in establishing their game plan against visiting San Antonio The Atonement as Heritage School posted a 52-7 home victory on opening night of its 2013 six-man football season.

On the strength of two first quarter touchdown runs by Joe Meek, the Eagles built up a 28-7 lead at halftime, then outscored the visiting Crusaders 24-0 in the third period to take a 52-7 lead and end the game there under the 45-point “mercy” rule.

The Eagles will continue their early-season home schedule Friday, Sept. 6, when San Antonio FEAST comes to town for a 7:30 p.m. contest at the Eagles’ Nest on the Heritage campus.

Heritage Volleyball Falls Tuesday

By Danny Hirt —

 

The Heritage School Lady Eagles made a run at San Marcos Hill Country Christian School last night, Sept. 3, but came up short, dropping a 3-2 decision.

After dropping the first game (13-25,) the Lady Eagles captured the next two (25-19, 25-22) before losing the fourth contest (19-25.) The fifth and deciding game went the way of the hosts (15-13.)

In Friday action, Aug. 30, Heritage charged back from a one-game deficit to top Seguin Lifegate in another TAPPS District 4 1-A contest.

The Lady Eagles’ record now stands at 6-2. Heritage continues on the court tomorrow, Sept. 5, when it’ll host San Antonio Castle Hills at 6 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Fredericksburg.
