Indian football gives Liberal first WAC win since 2013



The Indians football team started their home game streak off on a bad start. Indians played the Liberal Redskins Sept. 16 at Lewis Field.

In the first quarter, junior Hunter Brown took the ball into the endzone, making the score 7-0. Following an Indian touchdown the Redskins came back with a touchdown making a tie game 7-7.

The remaining part of the half wasn’t in favor either of the teams, both coming up scoreless.

During the third quarter, senior Kohlton Meyers comes in handy for the Indians, scoring a three yard touchdown expanding the lead 13-7, missing the extra point. The Redskins responded with a six yard run to put them up 14-13.

Following the start of the fourth quarter, the Redskins score a 67 yard run touchdown giving them an eight point lead, 21-13, which would stay steady until the end of the game.

The Redskins get their first Western Athletic Conference win since 2013, and force the Indians to a 1-2 record.

Indians will travel to Garden City Sept. 23, and take on the state ranked team who holds a record, at this point, of 3-0.
