Soccer hit the pitch Friday before the break, with both teams walking away with a win. “That was a huge game, that kind of changed everything,” assistant coach Kyle Parks said.

With the stakes high Friday against Lebanon Trail, the boys’ soccer team needed a win for to stay in the playoff chase, while the girls’ soccer team hoped to continue their winning streak. In the end, both teams found success on the pitch winning 1-0.

“Very tight game, but I don’t know I guess it shook out our way,” assistant coach Kyle Parks said. “That was a huge game, that kind of changed everything, like if that game didn’t go our way, [we] probably wouldn’t have a chance [at playoffs].

Being named the “Donkey Derby”, due to an old coach rivalry, the win was even more important.

“It feels great to win as both part of our season and as tradition,” junior Lucas Godoy said. “There was a lot of weight on the game since it was a must-win if we wanted a chance of going to playoffs, and being able to win the trophy, as payback for last year, and being able to keep it at Liberty feels great.”

The girls now have a two game win streak after Friday’s game.

“It was definitely a very exciting and happy moment,” junior Lily Gibbons said. “We have put in a lot of effort this season and have been waiting for this one to come.”
