The Liberty Union boys soccer team got back to over .500 for the season with a 6-2 win over Northridge at Northridge High School on Tuesday night.

Northridge came out determined after the half and scored just 4 minutes into the second half. The goal coming from a back post finish by senior Logan Willeke off a nice build and cross by the Northridge midfield. LU would quickly answer with Palmer’s third goal of the game off a quick restart from junior Michael Wagner. Wolffel would score off a beautiful curved shot from 25 yards out into the top right corner off Drass’s third assist of the night. The center back combination of sophomore Tyler Palmer and junior Aaron Basso would connect again with Basso finishing a header from a free kick by Tyler Palmer. The Lion’s sixth goal of the game came from Carson Palmer scoring his 4th of the night unassisted off a steal in the Northridge defensive third. Northridge would not quit though and squeezed in a goal in the final three seconds of the contest from junior Nathan Hewett.
