Liberal Drops Final Game in Wichita South Titan Classic

Brock Kappelmann - March 31, 2019 7:05 am

The Liberal girls soccer team finished 0-3 in the top bracket of the Wichita South Titan Classic.  Saturday morning Wichita Heights defeated LHS 2-1.  The Falcons scored early in this game.  Heights took a 2-0 lead when Liberal’s goal keeper’s kick go caught by the wind and the ball ladned straight to one of Heights’striker giving them the 1 on 1 finish inside the box.  Liberal scored in the first minute of the second half when Gisselle Melendez got fouled inside the box to earn a penalty kick.  Liberal actually controlled this game leading shots on goal 11-4.

Coach Carlos Ruiz comments:

“Overall, our team had a good performance at this big tournament in a difficult bracket,” Ruiz said.  “We definitely showed improvement and most importantly, we showed we can stick with strong teams.  We definitely learned a lot and we will benefit from playing strong opponents in the long run.”

Liberal plays at Great Bend on Tuesday and at Hays on Thursday.  LHS is 2-3 but 1-0 in the WAC.
