Liberal head coach Eric Olmstead wanted to see his team play, at worst, a competitive against heavily favored Kapaun Tuesday afternoon at Westurban in Wichita. Unfortunately, the game was anything but competitive as the Crusaders breezed by the Redskins 12-0 in five innings in a game which last about one hour and 10 minutes. Liberal committed eight errors in the loss.
Kapaun scored one unearned run in the first and added an unearned run in the second to take a 2-0 lead. The Crusaders added four in the third. LHS fell apart in the fourth as Kapaun scored six times thanks in part to five Redskin errors. Liberal pitching allowed just three earned runs as Collin Ware went three innings and Beau Fick pitched one inning. Liberal mustered just one hit in the loss. LHS finishes 2-19.
