Eagles power past Winston in six-man opener
It was a successful opening night for Heritage School’s six-man football youth movement as the Eagles topped host San Antonio Winston School, 54-6.
Despite fielding a team that was loaded with freshman talent and no seniors, the Eagles were able to prevail.
“We had half the team tonight playing their first varsity game ever,” said Heritage head coach Tim Shipman. “I was very proud of the way they handled everything. I was very pleased with the way our upperclassmen led.”
The Eagles will take their show on the road again this Friday when they travel to Austin Hill Country. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Heritage School 54, San Antonio Winston 6
The Eagles’ scoring machine got off to an interesting start when Caden Bray fell on a fumble in the Winston endzone, scoring a two-point safety less than three minutes into the game.
It only took 12 seconds for Heritage to tag on another score, this one coming from a 33-yard run across the goal line by Josh Hoermann. John Fritzch connected on the two-point conversion kick to boost the early Eagle advantage to 10-0.
In all, Heritage accumulated 205 rushing yards on 14 carries, with Hoermann leading the way with 95 yards on seven rushes for a pair of touchdowns. He also tacked on two more tallies, one on receiving and the other from passing.
