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 didnt ever give up.
Taylor Lindquist threw for just 64 yards, but hit Cody Daniels for a couple of touchdowns passes in the first half.
