Leader & Times staff report
After earning third place at the Wichita North Cup soccer tournament over the weekend, The Liberal Lady Redskins had a chance to earn another Western Athletic Conference victory Tuesday, but another one-point loss led to a 2-1 loss in overtime to Western Athletic Conference champion Garden City.
The single-point loss was the fifth of the season for the Lady Redskins.
Liberal improved since playing Garden City April 12. In that game, the Lady Redskins fell 5-1.
But Tuesday, Liberal battled back from an early 1-0 deficit to force overtime when Katie Burnett scored a goal in the second half with an assist from Guadalupe Ramirez.
But with 3:48 to play in overtime, Garden City scored the winning goal.
Liberal fell to 5-10 on the season, but the five losses by one goal could easily flip the record to 10-5.
Liberal will close out the regula season at home Thursday against Dodge City. The Lady Redskins dropped the road game to the Lady Red Demons 2-1 on April 18.
After the final home game, the Lad Redskins will prepare for Sub-State and may have one of the most deceptive records in the pool due to the narrow losses. Liberal dropped both games to Hays in the WAC by the same score, 2-1.
Liberal split with Great Bend and dropped both games to Garden City.
Game time is scheduled for 4 pm. at Redskin Field.
