Great Bend’s soccer celebrated “Senior Night,” with a hard-fought 2-1 Western Athletic Conference victory over Liberal.
Panthers Alex Galindo and Carlos Soto scored goals. The defense and goalie Edwin Chavez made those goals stand up.
Great Bend (1-1, 1-0 WAC) was swept by Liberal last year.
“We stayed mentally tough tonight,” said Great Bend coach Jesus Loera, Jr. “We didn’t do that Tuesday. We bounced back and earned a good win. It was perfect – our home opener, Senior Night and our WAC opener.”
The Panthers play Hays High at home Tuesday.
