But the Redskins responded with seven runs in the fifth to cut the led to 13-7.

But Woodward added five more runs in the sixth, and Liberal lost 18-7.

Shay Kerr and Aaron Archuleta each had two RBIs in the loss.

Kerr led the Redskins with three RBIs. Izzy Rotolo had two RBIs, and Aaron Barboza, Oscar Rubio, Hunter Huskey and Gunnar Geist each had one.
