Coming off of a disappointing loss last Thursday to an out of conference Eastern New Mexico University team, by a score of 24-45, the Hilltoppers will travel to Fairmont, W.Va. tonight to take on Fairmont State University. This Mountain East Conference (MEC) match-up is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff. West Liberty enters the final week of the season with a 3-7 record, whereas the Fairmont State Fighting Falcons enter in third place in the MEC, with a 7-3 record.

Tonight, the football team (3-6, 3-6 MEC) will host the Eastern New Mexico University Greyhounds (7-1, 6-1 LSC) at West Family Stadium. Losing five-straight games before last week’s win against Concord, the Toppers are hoping to salvage their season with wins in their final two games, but the Greyhounds are traveling nearly 1,500 miles to spoil that hope.

After a tough loss against the University of Virginia Wise last weekend, the West Liberty Hilltoppers are hoping to find a solid rhythm as they head into the middle of their season. After starting the season 2-2, the Toppers have struggled to maintain momentum toward a win streak. They hope to begin that streak tonight on the hilltop.

The Hilltoppers’ football team has started off their season with one win and one loss. Losing 34-0 on the road against West Virginia Wesleyan was a setback for the Hilltoppers. Putting themselves in a deep hole in the first quarter, the Hilltoppers went down 0-20 with Wesleyan scoring three touchdowns. One of the touchdowns was an impressive blocked punt, which was recovered by Anthony Robinson in the end zone.
