Liberty Lady Eagles hold strong despite low numbers

The season has not been ideal for the Lady Eagles. They have struggled with inexperienced players and low numbers since day one. After the departure of two players from the team, the Lady Eagles maintain a positive attitude and are holding strong for the remainder of the season.
Tuesday, the Lady Eagles travelled to Laquey where the game ended in a mercy rule 0-8. Most would look at the Lady Eagles' season record and see nothing but losses. However, those who know the game can see the endurance, passion, and sheer grit the girls have. Without having any depth on the bench, the girls have played entire games with no substitutions and are in good health for the season. That's a combination of excellent coaching and some very determined players.
"Although the score did not reflect this, the girls played better in this game than I have seen in a long time," stated Head Coach Ashley Roegge on the game. "The girls were definitely at a disadvantage, we were missing two of our key senior players and having to play down against a skilled team. Kiley Taber did amazing in goal and held the team 0-2 at half time. She ended up getting injured and the score started to head in the wrong direction. The girls were so positive! They were passing and running their little hearts out! I believe if we had our entire team there Monday we would’ve won that game. I was very proud of them."
