Israel Arroyo lofted the ball in the air toward the south goal on a picturesque evening at the Gary Cornelsen Sports Complex. All eyes were on Liberal’s #10 Eliel Gonzalez in an overtime game. Gonzalez, as he has so often, came through. He headed the pass into the south goal and a dog pile ensued. Final scored with one minute to go in overtime, Liberal 3 Garden City 2.
Eliel Gonzalez scored all three of Liberal’s goals. The first also came with an assist from Israel Arroyo. Max Lugo cross to the far right post to Gonzalez gave Liberal a 2-0 lead in the second half at about the 15 minute mark. Minutes later, the Buffaloes were on the board at the 12:51 mark to make it 2-1 and shocked the Skins with a goal with one minute to play in regulation sending the game to OT.
