Highlights from Wednesday's high school sports scene in the Pikes Peak region.
Liberty 1, Pine Creek 1, 2OT
At District 20 Stadium: There's still plenty of soccer left, but Liberty and Pine Creek could be headed for another league title split.
Sami Trinceri struck a half volley from 18 yards with eight minutes left to give Liberty the draw with Pine Creek.
"Those are the goals we watch on TV," Liberty coach Andy Liddle said.
The two teams played to a 0-0 tie last season before splitting the crown, though Pine Creek went in to the postseason as league champs when it came down to tiebreakers.
"It kind of played out like we said," Liddle said. "We talked about grinding it out. We knew we would have opportunities and they would have opportunities."
Pine Creek's big opportunity came quickly after a 0-0 first half. Freshman Madeline Alhamra scored five minutes into the second half to put the Eagles on the board.
Both teams finished with six shots on goal.
