LEOPARDS ESCAPE LAKEVIEW IN OVERTIME

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

CORTLAND OH- It quickly turned into a thriller Friday night between Liberty and Lakeview, as the Leopards were able to come away in with the 34-28 win in overtime.

D.C Ferrell shined bright for the Leopards throwing for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns, while gaining 68 on the ground. La’Breilyn Wilson was also a force to be reckoned with for Liberty’s offense as he found the endzone twice, including the game winning score in over time.

Lakeview made a big rally to even get into overtime. The Bulldogs trailed 20-7 in the fourth quarter. A score and a blocked punt set Lakeview up for a quick 21-20 lead. It wouldn’t last long, as Liberty answered quickly tying the game at 28, then winning it by scoring last in overtime.

Both teams get into conference play next week as Liberty will travel to Brookfield, and Lakeview will stay home to host Niles.
