Key Stats & Notes
Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer
"I think we did a good job of weathering the storm (to start the game). They started the first half pretty strong but as the half wore on I think we were able to find our groove. I thought it was probably one of the best possession games of our season. We created a number of opportunities and the girls were able to start the second half strong that gave us the win."
Liberty will end the weekend with another home contest as it welcomes North Alabama to Osborne Stadium on Sunday for the teams' first-ever meeting in Lynchburg. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN+.
