It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It wasn’t a tale of two cities, but it was a tale of two halves Friday night in the Big House. In front of a big crowd in the Big House the Redskins looked lethargic in trailing visiting zone crazed Dodge City 26-13 at the half. But Liberal went to an aggressive man to man defense in the second half and Dodge went to man to man and Liberal out scored the Red Demons 34-16 in the second half and 20-4 in the third quarter.
The Demons led 10-5 after one and 26-13 at halftime. The Redskins took their first lead when Kaiden Bigham nailed a left wing three pointer to give LHS a 31-30 lead with two minutes to play in the third. The Skins led 33-30 after three. With a 36-35 lead, Cade Hinkle who had been ill earlier in the day, drained a three to give LHS a 39-35 lead with 3:47 to play. Dodge City only made two three point shots. Deladris Green scored 10.
Liberal is 7-2 and 2-1 in the WAC while Dodge is 4-5 and 1-1. Liberal plays at Salina Central against Andover in the Salina Invitational at 4:45 with Redskin Pre-game at 4:30 Saturday on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
