Liberal’s middle schools had opposite results Thursday.

The Seymour Rogers Apaches battled Dodge City Comanche at Apache Field, and a slow start by the seventh grade Apaches led to a 28-6 loss.

The Apaches struggled to move the ball early, and punts into a stiff wind allowed the Coyotes to have excellent field position to start drives.

The Coyotes were able to sweep outside for two quick scores before the Apache defense started to adjust.

But the Coyotes broke free for a long run before half to take a 20-0 lead.

The Apaches and Coyotes played even in the second half, each adding a score, but the Apaches fell 28-6.

The Apaches eighth graders battled the Coyotes to a 12-12 tie in regulation.

In overtime, the Coyotes were able to reach the end zone, but the Apaches failed to score on their attempt, and Seymour Rogers fell 18-12.

While the Apaches struggled against the Coyotes, the Eisenhower Warriors were finding success on the road in Great Bend.

The seventh grade Warriors relied on a strong defense to earn a 16-0 shutout.

The eighth grade Warriors battled the Great Bend Panthers to an even match, with each team scoring a touchdown. But the Warriors were abel to add the conversion for an 8-6 win.
