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.

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.”

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.

FHS football defeats Memorial 57-14

By Matt Ward —

 

By the time the Memorial offense took the field for their first snap of Friday’s game against the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team, the Minutemen already trailed 10-0.

When the dust finally settled at Mata Stadium in San Antonio, FHS prevailed in a dominant 57-14 road victory.

“It’s fun when you score 57 points. I was proud of our kids in regard to that we started the game well and we ended the game well,” FHS head coach Lance Moffett said. “We’ve got lots to work on still. I’m real proud of the kids for sticking the throttle down and playing the game the right way, the way we coached them to play.”

 

Off to the races

Fredericksburg scored on each of its first three possessions as Kyle Grona broke free for a 31-yard touchdown on the Billies’ opening drive.
