        “We didn’t move them upfront consistently on offense and we didn’t tackle well when we were on defense. Thats a bad combination if you’re trying to win a playoff game,” said Liberty Coach Chris Watts.

        Too many mistakes cost Liberty as it lost 62-33 to  Heritage last Friday night in the regular season finale. Coach Chris Watts knew that the turnovers in the first half of the game were what led to the downfall. “We had done a good job hanging onto the ball all year long and for some reason we just decided to put it on the ground a bunch,” he said.
