The Liberal Redskins won their opener Friday night 41-0 in Guymon’s Memorial Stadium. The Redskins led 27-0 after one quarter and 33-0 at the half. The fourth quarter used a running clock. It’s Liberal’s first shut out since winning 14-0 at Guymon two years ago.
The Redskin passing game kicked into gear with Syris Dunlap tossing four touchdown passes with two interceptions. Dunlap rushed for 101 yards and Alan Marquez toted the rock for 79 yards rushing.
The Angry Red used excellent field position in the first quarter beginning drives from the 50 and the GHS 27, 11, and 29 yard lines. Dunlap scored first on a 14 yard run to the left with 8:35 to play in the first. After a bad snap on a Guymon punt attempt, Liberal took over from the Tiger 20. Dunlap found Jaylin Staten for a 17 yard strike on the left seam. Liberal’s PAT failed. Dunlap’s four yard run at the 1:11 mark made it 19-0. Alex Yanez pounced on a Guymon fumble. Dunlap lofted a pass to Braxton Hyde for a touchdown on a fade pass with 3.5 second remaining in the first quarter and Liberal scored the two for a 27-0 lead. Dunlap found Hunter Hatcher for a 17 yard score as Hatcher held on despite a pass interference penalty. That gave LHS a 33-0 lead with 8 minutes to play in the first as the extra point was blocked. Guymon then intercepted a Dunlap pass at the goal line. But Guymon lost another fumble at their own 10. However, the Tigers intercepted another pass. Dunlap found tight end Brodie Warren over the top for a score to make it 41-0. Ethan Green intercepted a third quarter Guymon pass as GHS committed three turnovers and Liberal had two.
