Brock Kappelmann - October 10, 2022 6:39 am

In 17 seconds, Liberal and Hays were going to finish an afternoon of soccer in a tie.  But LHS senior Manny Ortuno, connected from about 35 yards out and lofted a goal to the back of the north net to give the Liberal Redskins a thrilling 2-1 double overtime win over the Hays Indians Saturday at the Gary Cornelsen Sports Complex.  Liberal scored first when Ortuno connected on a free kick from midfield in the first half.  Liberal led 1-0 at halftime.  The Indians tied the game with 5:32 to play.  The teams remained tied at 1-1 after the first 10 minutes of overtime were on the board.  Then Ortuno’s blast with 17 seconds remaining in double overtime ended the game.  Liberal won despite 29 fouls being called against Liberal and 13 against Hays.  The Redskins are 6-4 overall and 3-2 in the WAC.  Hays is 7-5 overall and 3-5 in the WAC.  Liberal plays Wichita East Tuesday at the Wichita North Cup.
