Not more than a dozen students made the very short trip to Liberty High School March 19, where their boys soccer team took on the rival Patriots.

The scoreless tie that Skyline and Archbishop Murphy recorded in their season-opening boys soccer match March 19 wasn’t indicative of the level of play on the field.
Both teams had goal-scoring chances that weren’t converted, and while host Skyline was disappointed not to win, coach Don Braman and his players also knew they could’ve lost to a talented opponent that has made six straight state-playoff appearances.
