Liberty Runs Past Campbell as Mother Nature Wreaks Havoc

Updated: Sep 23, 2018


Mother Nature tried its best to slow down the Liberty Leopards running game but in the end the Leopards ground attack proved to be too much for the Campbell Memorial Red Devils.

With storms rolling into the vicinity of Campbell Memorial Stadium, the Leopards and Red Devils had kickoff delayed by an hour while also having to sit through another delay late in the second quarter for a lightning strike.

The Leopards jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead as Migel Burgess took a quarterback keeper 91-yards for the score on the second Liberty possession of the game.

Burgess was just warming up with that score as the junior would find the end zone three more times on runs of 86, 53, and 5 yards to finish with 257 yards on 14 carries.

The Leopards took a 20-7 lead into the half as Campbell was able to find the end zone late in the second quarter on a 27-yard touchdown pass from Joey Michaels to Bra'Lyn Liggens.

Liberty, who outscored the Red Devils 27-0 in the third quarter to put the game away, out-gained Campbell 463 yards to 3.

Jalen McKinney also helped pace the Leopards ground attack that totaled 449 yards as the senior carried the ball for 74 yards on 14 carries while finding the end zone from 2-yards out in the second quarter.

Liberty, who improved to 4-1 on the season with the victory, will return to Leopard Stadium next Friday night when they play host to undefeated LaBrae in what will be one of the premier games in the Mahoning Valley in week six.
