The most striking thing about tonight’s match was how aggressive Derby was this evening. Saul Munoz upped his goal total to six this season in three games with the only two goals of the match. With assists from Caleb Day in the 5’ and a 10’ assist from Scott Simmons, Derby was in total control. While they may not have added another goal, they were relentless when it came to keeping possession. Liberal could just not find their footing in the first. The Panthers only managed three shots in the game and the two on frame both found the net. Liberal was much better on the other end, but only put four on frame.
The Panthers defense was the story of the game as they were very much in bend but not break mode. With Conner Robinette and Matt Young winning header after header and JT Thompson and Caden Miller shutting down the outside channels, Liberal found it hard to get many dangerous opportunities.
Derby (3-0) will play for the championship of the Titan Classic in a 3:00 Saturday afternoon match against Heights, who won in penalty kicks over Dodge City this evening.
