Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 17, the team will remain home to host neighboring Kerrville Tivy in a 4 p.m. contest on the courts at the FHS campus. (The junior varsity will also host Tivy’s counterparts at the same time, but on courts in Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.)

Harper football wins over Eldorado

By Danny Hirt —

 

After spotting host Eldorado a touchdown in the first quarter, Harper fought back with a pair of scores in the second and two more in the fourth to capture a 27-6 victory Friday night in varsity football action.

The Longhorns (2-0) will open their home portion of the 2013 campaign Friday, Sept. 13, when Ingram Moore High School comes calling at 7:30 p.m.

For Harper, the game has been designated Parents’ Night.

In last week’s contest, the host Eagles took a short-lived lead with 4:40 remaining in the first when Tres Whitten zipped through the Longhorn defense on a 32-yard run to the endzone.  The point-after kick was unsuccessful, leaving Eldorado up 6-0.

But it didn’t take Harper long to take the lead when Easton Hansen bulled his way over the goal line from four yards out early in the second period. Briley Jalowy added the extra point to put the ’Horns up by a point (7-6).

Harper volleyball defeats Hondo

By Danny Hirt —

 

Rested following Friday’s open date, the Harper varsity volleyball team kept up the heat at it earned a hard-fought five-game home victory over Hondo Tuesday night.

Although the Ladyhorns won the opening contest by a 25-15 margin, they fell behind when they dropped the next two by scores of 22-25 and 19-25.

But Harper responded aggressively in the following two games, winning 25-22 in game four, then topping the Lady Owls 15-10 in the tie-breaker.

“After a week off, it was definitely great to see us come into tonight’s game and play with heart, guts and no fear,” said Harper head coach Gina Lumpkins.

Now sporting a 17-5 record, the Ladyhorns will host Boerne Geneva Friday evening, with the junior varsity match set to start at 4 p.m., followed by the varsity contest at 5 p.m. and the freshman match-up at 6 p.m.

Heritage football falls to FEAST

By Danny Hirt —

 

Despite losing by 40 points, Heritage School head football coach Tim Shipman had what many might think is a surprising statement about Friday’s 48-8 home loss to San Antonio FEAST (Family Educators Alliance of South Texas).

“It’s kind of hard to believe this, but I thought our defense played relentless and really played a good game. It was our offense that could not move the chains and get our defense off the field,” he said.

Shipman explained that six-man football “is generally a high-scoring game” and “when you are able to hold a team to 20 first half points in light of our turnovers and lack of offense, that’s pretty good.”

Those killer turnovers the Eagles’ mentor referred to came in the form of two lost fumbles and three intercepted passes.

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.
