        Mistakes hurt Liberty in its final regular season contest as the Minutemen fell 41-7 to Heritage last Friday.
        “We started out really well,” said Coach Chris Watts. “I felt really good about things. We held them and then got the ball and made a good drive and I felt like it was going to be a good game. Then a few things happened and it kind of snowballed until we were down two or three scores and just didn’t recover.”
