No not like Duran Duran.

Another chapter was written in the Liberty and Timberland rivalry book after Friday’s game in which Timberland defeated Liberty for the third year in a row with a 36-0 win.

The Eagles on the bright side forced the Wolves to score the least amount of points they ever have surrendered in a game to Timberland. 

Timberland, over the past three years that they have been playing Liberty, have scored a combined 144 points total while the Eagles have only scored 15 points total so far.

The first quarter just like every quarter was in this game showed Timberland scoring and Liberty having a tough time stopping them. On the opening kickoff, Liberty’s Josh Paubel kicked it very short giving the Wolves good field position at about their own 41 yard line. Timberland made quick work of Liberty by scoring on their opening drive within a little under 3 minutes at 9:08 with a Brett Hiatt 9 yard run for a touchdown followed by a Parker Brown extra point already putting the Eagles behind 7-0.

Liberty didn’t have the ball too long as Timberland got it back from them and wanting to score again. That’s exactly what they did too when Cole Martin threw a dart to Brett Hiatt for a 3 yard touchdown pass making it his second of the game and quarter at 2:56. The Wolves weren’t looking for an extra point but a two point conversion instead. It was accomplished by a Hiatt run. The Eagles now trailed 15-0 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter now had the Eagles getting closer to scoring but were brought to a halt by the Wolves. Besides a 1 yard touchdown run by Timberland running back Zach Mudd 30 seconds in at 11:30, there was nothing too exciting. The extra point by Brown was good and the Wolves were howling at the Eagles 22-0. The second quarter ended with Liberty scratching their heads on ways to score.

Halftime was pretty interesting as Liberty and Timberlands’s cheer teams did a performance together for the first time.

The third quarter started and ended with more of the same thing. Timberland was at the Liberty 30 and Cole Martin threw it to Parker Brown and he went all the way for the touchdown and he kicked his own extra point as well. Now with the Wolves scoring quickly at 7:33 they still hold the Eagles 29-0 and that’s how the third quarter looked when it ended.

The fourth quarter was also quite simple like the other quarters. At 6:13, the Wolf Pack attacked yet again with a Jarrett Wilson 1 yard touchdown run with the extra point as always. That’s where the scoring would end for the night and the game eventually wind down. The final score was Timberland 36-0 as the Wolves are now 3-0 in the rivalry.

The Liberty Eagles are now 3-3 looking to get a win this upcoming Friday on Oct. 5 at Fort Zumwalt South against the Bulldogs who are 2-4 and are 1-1 with one win a piece in their rivalry.
