Liberal Gets Monkey Off their Backs in Great Bend Win

It wasn’t pretty, but it was just what Liberal needed. After losing a chance to win an outright WAC title last week with a 1-0 loss at home to Great Bend, Liberal welcomed the Panthers back to Liberal for a first round soccer playoff game Tuesday. The Redskins won 2-0 to advance and head coach Lori Navarro says she feels like a monkey is off their backs after the win.
With the sun still shining brightly, LHS scored early. At the 37:22 mark, Elmer Rivera Sanchez scored into the north goal with an assist from Eliel Gonzalez. The Redskins did not score again until about halfway through the second half at the 22:10 mark when Brian Alvarez found Eliel for his 22nd goal of the season. That ties the school’s record for sophomores.
Liberal is 14-2-1 and faces 10-3-4 Bishop Carroll Thursday night at 6 at the Cornelsen Sports Complex. The Eagles beat Andover Central 3-1 in Wichita Tuesday.
