The win means it’s a race between Liberal and Dodge City for the WAC title. Both teams have one WAC loss but Garden City falls to 3-3 in the WAC after the Redskins complete a season sweep of Garden City.
Eliel Gonzalez scored in the 12th minute on a Pedro Lara throw in. Halfway through the first half the Redskins scored their second goal when a Gonzalez shot hit the crossbar but Liberal’s Brian Alvarez controlled the deflection and found Jonny Del Val who’s shot hit the top post but then went in.

The Buffs had 12 shots on goal compared to Liberal’s eight.
