Niles got on the board first when Kyle Paden connected with Marcus Hill on the team’s opening drive, giving the Red Dragons a 7-0 lead.

The Leopards would respond on a fourth down and long, Asim Pleas put the ball in the air and his touchdown pass brought the Leopards back within a point, 7-6.

But, on the ensuing kickoff, Hill took the ball 83 yards for a touchdown.

Later in the half, Paden would connect with James Tate on a 34 yard touchdown, giving the Red Dragons what seemed like a comfortable 20-6 lead.

Liberty’s strong second half would prove to be the difference as the Leopards pulled out the win and gave their home crowd plenty to cheer for.

Liberty will travel to Crestview next Friday night.

Niles hosts West Branch next week.
