The Flames made it three in a row on Saturday, winning 21-13 over Concord inside Williams Stadium thanks to timely scoring and dominating defense.

The Flames allowed an opponent season low 177 total offensive yards and surrendered just one offensive touchdown to the visiting Mountain Lions. Concord finished the game with 10 total drives and the Mountain Lions were limited to less than 10 yards on six of their 10 drives.

After giving up an early touchdown to Gardner-Webb in the third quarter on Oct. 6, Liberty has surrendered only 27 points and 558 total offensive yards in its last 148:53 of play (nearly 10 full quarters of football).

The ground game was Liberty's strength against Concord with the Flames posting a season-high 54 rushing attempts and running for 233 yards. Two of Liberty's three touchdowns in the game came via the ground game, with Sirchauncey Holloway scoring twice and rushing for a career-high 142 yards.

Liberty is now 5-0 all-time against Concord and 3-4 overall on the season. The Flames will look to move to 3-0 in Big South play and even their record at 4-4 when Liberty travels to Conway, S.C., this weekend to face Big South rival Coastal Carolina.
