LIBERTY — Whenever the Liberty and Fallsburg Boys Soccer teams meet the records go out the window and spectators are in for a treat. Despite Liberty moving up to Class A and Fallsburg staying in B, both teams left it all on the field as the RedHawks took home the 1-0 victory.
Fallsburg spent much of the game pushing the ball into Liberty’s half of the field, but it was Liberty’s first half goal that made the difference.
Shortly before the halftime whistle, Liberty made a run up the field. The Comets’ defense initially redirected the RedHawks attack, but Liberty regained possession before Fallsburg could clear it, leading to Jackson Bustillo getting a goal for the RedHawks.
The physical style of play lasted throughout the entire contest, with students from both sides cramping up and coming out of the game due to injury.
Fallsburg continued to make relentless attacks in the second half, but were unable to punch it in.
“We had two one-on-one chances in the second half and should’ve scored,” Fallsburg Coach Dylan Gaucher said. “We dominated the possession in the first half but we couldn’t score on our chances.”
Both coaches commented on the cross town rivalry between the two schools, with Liberty Coach Debbie Simpson saying, “It’s a big game for both schools, for both teams. It was nice for us to get a win on our home field.”
