Defense and the crowd. Those were two facets of the game LHS head coach Carter Kruger referenced after his girls won their sub state opener 45-13 in front of an ear splitting Big House crowd on Thursday night. Liberal advances and is on the doorstep of state.
Liberal led 10-2 after one quarter as Audrey Gilmore buried a couple of first quarter three pointers. The Lady Red led 28-5 at the half and built a lead of 43-8 against a West team who defeated Kapaun and lost by one to Wichita Northwest. The game used a running clock in the fourth quarter.
Machia Mullens had 14 points while Gilmore added 10. Whitney Hay and Katie Horyna scored six a piece.
Liberal is 21-0 for the first time in school history and wins their 32nd consecutive home game in the Big House. Liberal faces Garden City Saturday night at 4 in the Big House. Garden defeated Lawrence Free State 33-27 in the Garden Thursday night. The winner advances to state at Koch Arena at Wichita State on Thursday. Admission will be free thanks to sponsors.
