With a persistent and cold rain and temperatures in the low 30’s, Garden City and Liberal played a 6A playoff soccer game Wednesday evening.  The Redskins won 3-1 to advance and survive the rain soaked affair.

The Redskins scored first.  Angel Munoz launched a goal into the north net at the 31:53 mark for a 1-0 Redskin lead.  Garden City tied the game at the 25 minute mark.  The Skins found the back of the net late in the first half with 1:34 remaining before half.  Alfredo Lopez scored and Yahir Salazar assisted for a 2-1 Liberal lead.  Liberal missed many scoring chances in the second half of a 2-1 game.  Yahir Salazar scored the third goal with about a minute to play for the 3-1 lead.

Liberal wins all three against Garden City in 2020.  They are 9-3 and advance to a 6A regional title game against Dodge City or Hutchinson.
