Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer gained an edge in the District 28-4A race with a big win Friday night.

The Billies beat the Boerne Greyhounds, 2-0, to improve to 2-0-1 in district, heading into Tuesday night’s game against the defending Region IV-4A champs.

“Friday’s game with Boerne was a classic,” coach Shannon Petsch said. “We started out with a lot of energy and Boerne was able to match it.”

Cesar Zelaya headed in a corner kick during the first half to give FHS a 1-0 lead.

The Billies added another score a second time on Cristian Garcia’s free kick from 20 yards.

Down 2-0 during the second half, Boerne applied strong attacking pressure and had the ball in FHS’ defensive half for most of the 40-minute period.

The Billies’ defense, led by goalkeeper Peter Stenberg, helped preserve the win and the shutout.

“It was a huge district game and really helped us out with the standings,” Petsch said.

FHS played Canyon Lake on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at Canyon Lake High School.

Results were not available as of press time.
