Liberty traveled to Foothill for a 4A Southeast conference matchup. The Falcons, the defending conference champs were looking to avenge an earlier season defeat at the hands of the Patriots.  Foothill riding the wave of emotions from Senior night managed to jump out to a nine point 1st quarter lead and extended it to 10 at halftime. As always the Falcons had a balance attack lead by the play of Demitri Clair, Fisher Welch, and Eli Habighorst. Liberty was kept in the game by all world stud Julian Strawther who had 17 at the half. The second half saw rising c/o 2022 stud Joshua Jefferson put his imprint on the game. Jefferson was a monster on both the offensive and defensive boards and his ability to hold the Falcons to one shot and provide extra shots for Liberty was huge. Despite a 10 point 4th quarter lead, the Patriots continued to battle and eventually the combination of Jefferson’s rebounding and Strawther’s scoring allowed them to come all the way back and capture an 11 point victory. Here are my takeaways.
