For the second straight season, Liberal’s soccer team lost their opener to Great Bend. The Panthers stunned the Redskins 2-1 Thursday night at the Gary Cornelsen Sports Complex. Last year, the Skins would go on to win every game the rest of the season not against Dodge City.
The Panthers scored in the first half and then took a 2-0 lead late in the second half when the Liberal defense failed to clear a ball. Liberal’s Suain Moncayo scored Liberal’s goal with 1:20 to play. But it was too little too late for the Redskins. LHS begins play in the Wichita South Titan Classic Monday morning at 11 against Wichita East. Liberal will play the winner or loser of Wichita North or Maize on Thursday in Wichita.
