Buffaloes Burst Past Redskins

KSCB News - October 3, 2015 7:38 am

It couldn’t have been a better start for the struggling Liberal Redskins on their homecoming. Juan Rodriguez took to opening kickoff down the center of the field for a 90 kick off return for a touchdown. Then the defense gained back to back stops of the Garden City offense. But in the end, a few too many mistakes were costly as Garden raced by the Redskins 42-6 Friday night in front of a big homecoming crowd.

The two teams traded turnovers in the first quarter. After the Redskins stopped the Buffaloes on Garden’s first offensive posession, a high snap resulted in a short punt which LHS tried to catch but dropped giving GCHS the ball. But Liberal responded by stripping the Garden receiver for a Ty Johnson recovery at the LHS 33. GCHS quarterback Jesse Nunez found Patrick Clifford for a 30 yard TD. Garden City recovered an LHS fumble at their own 33 and two plays and 67 yards later, the Buffs owned a 14-6 lead after a Nunez 32 yard run with 5:08 to play in the first half. Jared Koster’s 16 yard run gave GCHS the 21-6 lead with 1:25 to play. Garden City’s Garret Doll intercepted a pass at the LHS 31. On the next play, Ethan Yardley raced 31 yards for a score to make it 28-6 with ;54 remaining before half.

Cade Hinkle intercepted his second pass of the season at the 10;12 mark of the third quarter. But Koster’s four yard run at the 5:59 mark gave the Ragn’ Brown a 35-6 lead and a Peyton Hill one yard run with 4:13 to play in the game made it 42-6.

Garden City defeats LHS for an eighth consecutive time and is 5-0 and 2-0 in the WAC while LHS is 1-4 and 0-3 in the WAC. Liberal plays at Great Bend Friday with pre-game at 6 and kick off at 7 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
