Hasik found Tommy Cole for the two point conversion to give LHS an 8-6 advantage at the end of one. Hasik’s 13 yard TD pass to Dane Friederich into the north endzone gave the Skins a 15-6 lead. It is Liberal’s only pass completion this season. Tra Clay intercepted a Guymon pass with 40 seconds remaining in the half. Clay pulled a 35 yard field goal attempt at the end of the half.

Tommy Cole forced another Guymon fumble on the next possession. A 28 yard run by Heronemus set up a Hasik two yard sneak with 2:14 to go in the third to make it 34-6. Guymon’s Lane Martinez forced Liberal’s fifth turnover of the night stripping the ball from Rex Heronemus. Rex’s 60 yard run in the fourth quarter set up Liberal’s final score on a Hasik sneak with 8:17 to play to make it 41-6 before Liberal brought in their JV.
