LBJ holds off Liberty Hill, 41-34, in top-10 interclass showdown

High School Sports

LIBERTY HILL, Texas (KXAN) — LBJ made a statewide statement on Thursday night that the Jags are the the team to beat in class 4A.

The third-ranked Jags beat No. 9 Liberty Hill out of class 5A, 41-34.

While the offenses lit up the scoreboard, it was the LBJ defense that helped seal the win. Cyronn Miller came up with the game-sealing stop on fourth down with just over a minute left in the game.

With the win, LBJ improves to 4-0 after wins over Manor, Dallas’ Parish Episcopal and Waco La Vega. Liberty Hill dropped its season opener to Killeen Ellison before turning it around with wins against Del Valle and Georgetown.

This was Liberty Hill’s final non-district game before opening the district schedule against Crockett next week.

Next, LBJ will travel to San Antonio’s Cornerstone Christian next week.
