Liberal's defense was too much for Goodland in the first round of the Colby Orange and Black Classic Thursday. The Redskin pressure forced turnovers that Jade Cathey and Justin Andrade turned into points in a 64-41 Redskin victory to set up a seconde-round match-up against  11-4 McCook.

The full-court pressure applied by the Redskins defense allowed the Redskins to build a 17-point halftime lead.

"We got up on them early, and it stayed at a 20-point game in the second half," Liberal coach Drew Gruver said. "I thought we came out with good intensity, but once we got the lead we didn't keep going. We are going to need a much better defensive effort if we want to win against McCook."

Cathey and Andrade each had 17 points, Tyson Deaton had eight, Kowan Russell scored seven, and Kedrick EYle added six to lead the Redskins.

"If we don't react better and come preapred to play on defense, they will score a lot of points on us," Gruver said. "We are happy with the win, but the most important game is the next one, so we have to be ready to go."

Game time is scheduled for 4:45 p.m today in Colby.
