Leader & Times

After a frustrating first half that ended in a scoreless tie with Woodward, Okla., Monday at Redskin Field, the Redskins reached the end zone in the second half and ended the game in dramatic fashion with a game-winning walk-off touchdown in a 12-6 victory.

The Redskins pushed the ball inside the Woodward 10 yard line three times in the first half but could not score.

Liberal’s Jadon Lewis caught a pass from Trystian Juarez but fumbled at the goal line, and Woodward recovered in the end zone.

Liberal was stopped on fourth down the next time the Redskins reached the red zone, and the third time Liberal got close to the Boomer goal line, penalties pushed the ball back to the 30 yard line.

But in the second half the Redskins broke through when Easton Zapien ran up the middle and ripped through tackles for a 44-yard touchdown run and a 6-0 lead.

But Woodward put together a scoring drive midway through the fourth quarter but missed the point after to leave the game tied 6-6.

The Redskins answered with a five minute drive that focused on the run into a heavy wind, and the Redskins ran out of time outs after a run to the Woodward 8 yard line and had to spike the ball with two seconds to play.

Juarez took the final snap as time expired and threw a pass to Izzy Garcia-Rotolo in the back of the end zone who made the catch for the game-winning touchdown, and the Redskins dog piled Garcia-Rotolo.
