The West Liberty Hilltoppers took on number nine Concord University at West Family Stadium Saturday afternoon and won by a score of 29-28. The final score of the game came down to a 32 yard field goal from freshman Christian Morris, and he kicked the ball right through the uprights to give the Toppers a 29-28 lead with :16 seconds remaining in the game. The end of the game was put on West Liberty’s defense and they held Concord to win the game.

West Liberty played really well against number nine Concord. West Liberty quarterback Dakota Conwell went 30-53, throwing for 288 yards and one touchdown pass. He did throw three interceptions, but he still lead his team to victory. Tight end Daree Goodwin accounted for 111 of Conwell’s passing yards with nine receptions and one touchdown. The Hilltoppers’ receiving corps will be good for the next three years. Red-shirt freshman Ian Kelly had seven receptions for 65 yards, sophomore Anton McCallum had four receptions for 35 yards, and red-shirt freshman Micah Lowe had four receptions for 35 yards.
