PHOTO GALLERY: Liberty wins hard-fought 13-0 battle vs. Garces in league opener

Locked in a physical, hard-hitting battle, the Liberty and Garces defenses stole the spotlight in Thursday’s first-ever South Yosemite River League matchup.

And when the dust settled, the Patriots held on for a hard-fought 13-0 victory at Sam Tobias Field.

"I really liked the way our kids flew around,” Liberty coach Bryan Nixon said of his defense. “They flew around and played hard. That’s what we talked about this week, is just battle back from last week (a 27-0 loss at Carlsbad), and just gotta keep moving forward.”

The game was close throughout, and wasn’t decided until late in the fourth quarter.
