Since 2013, Liberty, Timberland, and Holt have battled it out to see who deserves the title “Kings of Wentzville.” The Eagles and the Wolves will be competing this Friday, Sept. 3, to see which of the two teams will be one step closer to earning the title.
Win or lose, I feel tonight will go great. We have the most spirited student section that will always support our team no matter what.”
— Carson Clay, StuCo president
Last season, Timberland defeated the Eagles in the final seconds of a nail-biting game 17-14. The Wolves took the lead with a last-second field goal the Eagles couldn’t recover from. Two years ago, the pre-COVID-19 season, Liberty proved they were the best team in the Wentzville School District by conquering Timberland and Holt for the first time in school history.
“It was super exciting because they’re our rival school, so it was exciting to beat them for the first time,” Coach Kling said of the victory over Timberland a couple years ago.
This season, the two teams will face off in front of a packed stadium again for the first time in two years. The rivalry between the Eagles and the Wolves will be sure to stir up both student sections with the intensity of the game.
Both the Eagles and the Wolves won their first game. Liberty beat Warrenton 28-14 in an intense, physical, game. Timberland won against Lafayette 24-13, defeating them in their home stadium.
This Friday, the Liberty student section will be repping neon clothing for the team while the Timberland students will be showing support in beach gear.
Students couldn’t attend away games last season, regardless of if they were in district, so the rivalry will be back between both the teams and the students on Friday.
“Win or lose, I feel tonight will go great,” StuCo president Carson Clay said. “We have the most spirited student section that will always support our team no matter what.”
The rivalry game will commence tonight, and both teams will be sure to give their all to win.
