Liberty Lady Eagles continue to fight through season

This season has been filled with challenges for the Liberty Lady Eagles Soccer program, but the girls and coaches and have faced them head on and are continuing to fight through the season.
Beginning the week on Monday, the Lady Eagles traveled to West PPlains where they faced the Lady Zizzers for the second time this season. A lackluster game by the girls ended in a 0-2 loss.
On Thursday the Lady Eagles hosted Aurora. Once again, a team the Lady Eagles saw earlier this season at the Greenwood tournament. It looked as though Aurora had improved on their skill set having better ball control and marking up several of Liberty's key players. The second half of the game was an incredibly tense match as both teams were desperate to score. Nearing the end of the second half, Freshman Kaylie Wagner took the corner kick which sailed past Aurora's defensive line to Sophomore Tati Chavez who flicked it in for the goal. The game ended in a 1-0 victory.
The final game of the week was a make-up game against Logan-Rogersville. That game ended in a 7-0 loss for the Lady Eagles.
"This week was full of games," stated Head Coach Ashley Roegge. Monday we faced West Plains for the second time, again we didn’t come out to play with this team and it showed. Thursday we faced Aurora for the second time. The girls finally decided to play the way they know how to play and were able to beat Aurora 1-0. Thursday we faced Logan-Rogersville. This team had more numbers and experience."
The Lady Eagles are continually improving on their game and maintaining their endurance during games despite the lack of numbers on the bench.
