Liberty 3, Lewis-Palmer 0
At District 20 Stadium: Taryn LaBree broke a scoreless tie late in the first half and later added an assist to lead Pikes Peak No. 2 Liberty (9-3) to its sixth straight victory.
"We're starting to play the right way, and we're putting together a little streak," Lancers coach Andy Liddle said.
Morgan Metcalf and Sami Trinceri scored 10 minutes apart early in the second half to take command.
Hannah Wells stopped all four shots for the shutout, while Haley Arsenault recorded 12 saves for Lewis-Palmer (6-2-2).
The Lancers have the next week off before a showdown April 23 against Pine Creek that will feature the last two unbeaten teams in league play.
"We're starting to hit our stride," Liddle said. "We've played a lot of games, and the break before Pine Creek was by design. We took some tough overtime losses, but in hindsight, it's OK. You learn and grow from games like that."
