LIBERTY CHRISTIAN 54, COVE 0: John Lesser ran for 175 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Patriots to a nonleauge win over the Leopards in Richland.

“It was a fun game,” said LC assistant coach Tom Morris. “Everyone got a lot of playing time. They were a tough, scrappy team. They didn’t ever give up.”
