Two weeks ago, the Lady Redskins dropped a 5-1 decision to the Hays Lady Indians.

Thursday, the Lady Redskins were only 50 seconds away from a 1-0 win against Hays at The Burial Grounds before a free kick tied the game and a bizarre deflection off a Lady Redskin landed in Liberal’s goal in that allowed Hays to escape with a 2-1 overtime win.

Crystal Vela sent a pass to Carolina Limon, and she put the ball in the net with 21:06 to play in the first half to give the Lady Redskins a 1-0 lead.

Liberal maintained the lead as Magali Vazquez kept the ball out of her goal for 79 minutes and 10 seconds until Hays was awarded a direct kick with 50 seconds to play.

The shot got by Vazquez, and that sent the game into overtime.

With 3:55 left to play in overtime, Hays took a shot that deflected of a Lady Redskin and away from Vazquez and ended up in the goal for the 2-1 Hays win.

Hays leads the Western Athletic Conference with a 4-0 record, and Liberal’s effort Thursday was an indication that they can compete with anyone in the league.

Liberal (4-4 overall, 2-2 WAC) will travel to Guymon Tuesday.
