Billies fall at La Grange 34-7

By Matt Ward

An early two-touchdown deficit without starting quarterback Kyle Grona proved to be too much for the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team as the Billies fell to 4A’s top program La Grange, 34-7, Friday.

“The score isn’t indicative of us getting rolled by them,” FHS head coach Lance Moffett said. “There were times when we had opportunities to get back in the game and I’m very proud of our performance in regard to that with a backup quarterback who had taken less than 20 percent of the (practice) reps.”

Grona suffered a game-ending injury early in the first quarter, making way for backup Kyle Reeh, who ran for 74 yards and completed seven of 17 passes for 113 yards.

Volleyball wins first two district games

The seventh-ranked Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team notched their first two wins in District 29-4A play this week, defeating Hondo last night 25-16, 20-25, 25-13, 25-18.

On Friday, the Billies opened district with a three game sweep 25-23, 25-18, 25-19 over Bandera.

FHS will host Boerne in a rivalry game Friday evening at 7 p.m. and Lytle Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. for Teacher Appreciation Night.

“Boerne still remembers how we went into their gym last year and squeaked out a 17-15 win in the fifth and will be highly motivated to get some revenge,” FHS head coach Jason Roemer said. “They have been playing really well. We will have our hands full.”

Win over Hondo

Last night, Fredericksburg defeated Hondo on the road 25-16, 20-25, 25-13, 25-18 in a match Roemer called “not the prettiest of wins.

Netters split pair on Saturday

By Austin R. Eck

Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis split their two Saturday matches with a win against Mason, but lost to Abilene-Wylie, the first-ranked 4A team.

The second-ranked FHS Billies started the day with a 10-3 (16-3) loss to Abilene-Wylie. 

“They are very strong, and our kids gave 100 percent,” head coach Randall King said about the Abilene-Wylie match.

Fredericksburg failed to seize its opportunities in doubles’ play to be in a position to win the match in singles’ play.

Fredericksburg only managed one win in doubles play, which left the Billies with a difficult challenge in singles play, King said.

Fredericksburg played a second match against Mason in the afternoon, winning 10-5 (11-8).

“We were a little deflated emotionally after pouring so much into the Wylie match,” King said, “but the Mason kids are always competitive and give their best.”

By Matt Ward

 

Fredericksburg High School head football coach Lance Moffett usually knows if he wants the Billies to receive the opening kickoff or defer to the second half hours in advance of the game.

It’s a choice he’s had to make all four games so far this season as the Billies are a perfect 4-0 on the coin toss to open the year.

“I wasn’t certain after the Burnet game (55-7 road loss) what we needed to do,” Moffett said. “A lot of times I know what we’re going to do just based off our chemistry that week, whether we’re going to take the ball or kick off.”

Moffett opted to put his defense on the field and FHS came through, forcing a three-and-out and blocking a punt leading to the Billies’ first touchdown in a shutout 30-0 homecoming win over Llano, Friday.
