The Lady redskins opened up the Western Athletic Conference soccer season in Dodge City Tuesday, and despite a strong effort, the Lady Redskins fell 1-0.

alt“It was a very hard fought game with few opportunities for both sides,” Liberal coach Carlos Ruiz said. 

The game’s only score came at the 28th minute of the first half off a corner kick play by the Lady Red Demons.

“Our starting goalkeeper Evelyn Rios suffered a high ankle sprain with 20 minutes remaining in the first half causing her to miss the rest of the game,” Ruiz said. 

Sophomore Heidi Moreno subbed in and was not contested at all in the second half. 

Liberal led shots on goal 5-3. 

According to Ruiz, Dodge City tried to focus their defense on Lady Redskins standout Kim Alarcon who scored four goals in Liberal’s season opener.

“Dodge City played a very tough and smart game, doubling up on Kim Alarcon for the whole game,” he said. “We had a few breakaways that could have been executed better, and we weren’t able to capitalize.”

Possession percentage favored the Lady Redskins in the second half, and Ruiz said there is a chance the two teams could see each other again soon in the Titan Classic Tournament nest week
