Liberty won its second game in a row — barely.
The Patriots edged Canyon Springs 21-13 tonight after leading the whole game.
“It was closer than we wanted,” Liberty coach Rich Muraco said. “We played totally sloppy. It was our worst performance.”
Liberty turned the ball over four times and committed six personal foul penalties, two on the same play that set up Canyon Springs’ touchdown to make the score 21-13.
Canyon Springs drove again to the Liberty 20-yard line, but Liberty’s defense came up big with two sacks to ensure the victory.
For the Patriots, Ty Byrd had 22 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown and Sam Tai had six carries for 33 yards and two touchdowns.
