Prosper Defeats Frisco Liberty for Second Year Running
Matt Bramer passed for 135 yards, Keegan Shoemaker threw for 85 yards and the quarterbacks each had two passing touchdowns in the Eagles 43-7 win against Frisco Liberty at the Star last Friday night.
The Eagles (2-1) intercepted Liberty twice, one was returned for a touchdown by Justin Benvie in the first quarter and the second was caught by Wayne Anderson, Jr. and returned 42 yards setting up the next play when Kaleb Adams scored on a 7-yard run.
On the Liberty (0-3) side, Mitch Miller threw for 63 yards including a 42-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Jones with less than a minute remaining in the game. Carson Morris threw for 49 yards in eight passes.
D.J. Love, Kris Wafer, John Spriggs and Ethan Taylor each caught an Eagle touchdown pass.
Liberty trailed the Eagles 36-0 by the half and wasn’t able to turn the tide after the second half started. Prosper scored once more in the third quarter with a Kris Wafer pass from Shoemaker for 15 yards.
Eagles David Alvarez rushed for 75 yards and Kaleb Adams for 36.
Liberty was able to hold the Eagles back until midway into the first quarter when Taylor took a Shoemaker pass for the first score of the game. Then came Benvie’s interception return touchdown about a minute later.
In the second quarter, Love connected with Bramer’s pass for a 49-yard touchdown. Anderson Jr.’s interception came on the first snap for Liberty followed by Adams’ touchdown, all in the span of 20 seconds.
Then with only 1:15 on the clock for the first half, Spriggs took a pass from Bramer to complete a 73-yard score.
When the teams met last year, it was a similar outcome. Prosper routed Liberty 41-0.
Liberty will face off against South Garland Thursday at 7 p.m. and Prosper will look to defend its home turf against Little Elm on September 29 at 7 p.m.
