A Fun Way to Finish for Redskins
KSCB News - October 31, 2015 7:21 am
About five or six years ago, these same Liberal Redskin players were participating in Kids Inc’s Night Under the Lights. It’s a night when youth football players get to play on the big field. Friday night, it looked like that joy for football was rekindled as the Redskins beat Ark City 17-6 on cool misty night at Redskin Field.
The weather was a factor as rain pelted Redskin Field all day and mist persisted during the game. Liberal fumbled a snap at their own 22. Kendall Biddle recovered the fumble and several plays later ran up the middle three yards for a Bulldog score to make it 6-0 after the PAT failed at the 11:21 mark of the first quarter. Ark City’s Tanner Spencer intercepted a pass at the 9:41 mark. Liberal held Ark City and would later score on a 26 yard TD pass from Jared Hasik to Sylman Pando to make it 7-6 after the Carlos Martinez PAT with 1:01 to play in the half.
Tyler Martinez raced in for a 25 yard score for his first Redskin touchdown giving Liberal a 14-6 lead with 7:33 to play in the third. Alan Fraire’s juggling interception set up a 24 yard field goal by Carlos Ramirez. Juan Rodriguez and Jared Hasik added late interceptions to prevent Ark City from scoring. Payton Emery rushed for 105 yards in his final game.
Liberal finishes 2-7 and Ark City 1-8.
