WEEK 11 MEN'S SOCCER NOTES
The Liberty Flames will host the Radford Highlanders in a key, regular season-ending Big South Conference match, Wednesday afternoon at Osborne Stadium. Match time is scheduled for 5 p.m.
Wednesday's contest will be the last regular-season contest for both teams. The Flames and Highlanders have already qualified for the Big South Men's Soccer Championships, set to begin on Sunday. However, a win by either team on Wednesday will push them into second place in the conference standings and allow them to receive a bye into the Big South semifinals.
Liberty clinched a spot in the top of the Big South Conference, Saturday. A penalty kick by Kevin Mendoza during the 59th minute proved to be the difference, as the Flames defeated Winthrop, 1-0, at Osborne Stadium on Senior Day. The goal was Mendoza's eighth of the season.
With the victory, Liberty moves to 5-2 in Big South play and 10-4-1 overall. The Flames have won five of their last six contests.
Scoring First The Flames have scored first in 11 of their 15 contests this season. Liberty holds a 9-1-1 record in those games.
In addition, the Flames are 6-0 when leading at halftime and 3-2-1 when they are tied. Honoring the Seniors Before this past Saturday's match, Liberty men's soccer honored its seniors in a pregame ceremony. Liberty players Jovanni Chavez, Alex Dominguez, Brady Mazzei, Edgardo Reyes and Pepe Segarra were recognized along with manager Hunter Hudson.
