Liberty Patriots fail to stop Bellevue Wolverines
October 23, 2012
It was Liberty High School’s turn to face the juggernaut that is Wolverine football when the Patriots went on the road to play Bellevue on Oct. 19.
While the Patriots fell to Bellevue, 49-11, they were the first team in the state to put up more than 10 points on the Wolverines this season, behind a Josh Johnson field goal and a score by Tynan Gilmore, as well as a 2-point conversion.
Heading into the game, the team knew it was a tough test, going up against a Bellevue team that is ranked among the best in the nation, Liberty coach Steve Valach said.
“That’s a formidable opponent, and we talk about playing hard for 48 minutes, playing together, and I think for the most part we did that,” he said.
The Patriots are now 3-5 on the season and will host Mount Si on Oct. 26.
