Things looked good for the View early when senior running back Richie Estrada did what he has done so many times during his Lions career, run straight up the middle for a 69-yard score.

But Liberty rallied quickly to tie on a 20-yard touchdown run by Wyatt. They grabbed the lead on a 44-yard interception return touchdown by Chad Bennett.

But Liberty would run off five straight touchdowns to seal the deal.
