The Liberty County High School soccer teams dropped their games against Wayne County on Friday in Jesup.
Both Liberty teams lost by 3-1 scores.
Senior Lady Panther Cortney Welch tied the girls’ game at 1-1 on a penalty kick late in the first half.
Lady Panther coach Jarvis McArthur said the Lady Jackets knocked in two goals late in the game to secure the win.
“We have improved a lot this season with passing and moving into space,” McArthur said. “However, we must continue to work on the mental aspect of the game. We must learn to be mentally tough when we are in close games.”
The coach was pleased with the defensive effort and tenacity of junior Tatiana White and sophomore Tia Anderson.
The Liberty girls dropped to 3-5 overall and 2-2 in Region 3-AAAA. As of Monday, McArthur said they currently are the No. 3 seed in the state playoff rankings.
