Southeast Rallies Past Redskins

Brock Kappelmann - September 22, 2018 2:25 am

The Liberal Redskins are o for September.  LHS dropped their third straight game with a 14-8 loss to the Wichita Southeast Buffaloes Friday night at Heights Stadium in north Wichita.

Liberal got off to a slow start as Southeast forced a fumble on the Liberal 49.  Cesar Burciaga briefly turned the momentum Liberal’s way by blocking a punt.  But Liberal was unable to take advantage offensively.  Richie Reed lofted a pass through two LHS defenders and into the arms of AJ King for a 67 yard touchdown with 3:37 to play in the second quarter.  Liberal fumbled the ensuing kick return.  But Liberal’s Alex Esparza pounced on a Buffalo fumble to give LHS the ball back.  LHS trailed at the half 7-0.

The Redskins had an opportunity to tie the game toward the end of the third quarter with a 4th and 3 from the Buffalo five yard line but Southeast stopped Liberal.  The Redskins took the lead in the game with 4:31 to play.  Syris Dunlap lofted a 24 yard touchdown pass to Braxton Hyde.  After an offsides penalty on the point after, the Redskins went for two and Burciaga ran it in for an 8-7 Redskin lead.  But Southeast came back.  Reid’s swing pass to Cherry went for 34 yards and a score with 1:03 remaining.

Liberal had 234 yards of offense to Southeast’s 225.  LHS committed three turnovers to Southeast’s one.  Liberal is 1-3 and Southeast is 2-2.  Liberal plays at 1-3 Garden City on Friday at 7 with Redskin Pre-game at 6 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
