On a day in which to on field temperature at Redskin Field red 112 degrees, the team who made the least mistakes would walk away a winner. Two Liberal hand balls were costly as Garden City won 2-1 Thursday in the second round of the Wichita North Cup which was moved to Liberal.
Playing with a renewed enthusiasm under interim head coach Lori Navarro, LHS played heavily favored Garden City to a fist half tie. The first LHS hand ball seven minutes into the second half resulted in a Garden penalty kick which Magali Vazquez saved for the seventh time in eight tries this season. A Garden City put back goal at the 11 minute mark in the second half gave Garden the game’s first tally. But LHS came right back and thirty second later, Karina Vazquez scored a penalty kick into the south goal. Another LHS hand ball gave the Buffaloes another penalty kick at the 5:07 mark and this time they converted.
LHS falls to 2-10-1 and plays for third Saturday at Wichita North against Mulvane.
