        Despite the Liberty football team playing better, the Minutemen were unable keep up with Brookville’s offense last Friday and fell 49-27.
        “We didn’t do a really good job covering the pass early in the game,” said Coach Chris Watts. “We had some penalties and things that kept us out of the endzone early. Then once we started to get going on offense we did a pretty good job.”
