This was improbable. Great Bend shocked Liberal 1-0 Monday evening at Redskin Field. The Liberal soccer team, coming off a North Cup tournament title and hosting Great Bend on Senior Night knowing they needed this win to claim the WAC crown, lost at home to a team with a losing record. This was a Great Bend team LHS beat 6-2 on September 11. But the Panthers scored at the 34:11 mark to get the early goal. Liberal had multiple opportunities to score especially in the second half. But Great Bend’s goalie saved shot after shot frustrating the Redskins. Liberal falls to 12-2-1 and 5-2 in the WAC. Great Bend is 4-10-1 and 2-4-1 in the WAC. Dodge City is 6-1 in the WAC so the Red Demons have clinched at least a share of the conference title. Liberal plays at Dodge City Thursday night. The Demons handed Liberal one of their losses 1-0 in overtime September 16 in Liberal.
