The Hilltoppers Lose to McKendree University

By Trent Nicholson, Contributing Writer

The West Liberty Hilltoppers fall to 1-1 on the season with a 50-27 loss to McKendree University.

West Liberty had a rough day on offense and defense as McKendree absolutely pummels the Toppers. The Hilltopper offense had 461 yards, but just couldn’t get the job done. West Liberty’s defense allowed 50 points on 592 total yards of Bearcat offense.

West Liberty quarterback Dakota Conwell left the game early due to injury. There is still no word on what happened. He ended his day going 4 for 13 with just 30 yards and one interception. West Liberty sent in backup quarterback Dylan LaGarde, who went 20 of 35 for 209 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Ian Kelly and Micah Lowe were the two main targets for LaGarde.
