Turnovers, injuries plague Liberty in loss to Juanita

By Staff

The Liberty High School football team fell to Juanita, 28-21, on Sept. 21 when the Patriots traveled to Kirkland to take on the Rebels.

At halftime, the score was tied at 14, but the Patriots took a hit when three key starters — including quarterback Robbie Thomas — were knocked out of the game with injuries.

Those injuries, combined with several turnovers, were too much to overcome, Liberty coach Steve Valach said.

“It was a tough loss,” he said. “We had five turnovers and clearly it’s tough to win when you do that. I think that was a major factor in the game.”

Tynan Gilmore had two receiving touchdowns in the first half for the Patriots. Liberty sophomore Russell Boston had a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter.

Liberty heads out on the road again next week when the team takes on Lake Washington on Sept. 28.
