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.

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.

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).
