FHS JV boys' soccer remains undefeated in district play

By Scott Allen

 

Winning like it’s going out of style, the Fredericksburg High School JV boys’ soccer team has only lost two games of their entire season, and have improved to 13-2 on the season.

The boys have remained undefeated (6-0) in District 29-4A.

On Friday, March 11, the boys traveled to Wimberley and defeated the Texans, 2-0.   

Head coach Michael Gutierrez said the team dominated the entire game, despite a low score.

“Wimberley seldom challenged the Billies’ goal throughout the game,” Gutierrez said. “Wet weather posed a big challenge for FHS’ offense as the wet field made for unsure footing and also made shooting on goal difficult.”

Luis (Beto) Neri opened the scoring for the Billies late in the first half, Gutierrez said.
