Liberty High School has opened the season with a 0-2 start, losing to the Issaquah Eagles 23-13 in a non-league game Friday night at Issaquah in Gary Moore Stadium.

Starting wide receiver Jake Bakamus sealed the win for the Eagles with an interception from Liberty quarterback Jordan West with 5:54 left in the fourth quarter.

Liberty opened the game with a rushing touchdown from senior running back Hamilton Noel, taking a 7-0 lead on their first offensive drive with 5:11 left in the first quarter.

The Patriots were able to hold Issaquah to just a field goal in the first quarter, but with defensive pressure from the Eagles — including sacks from senior defensive lineman Trevor Alexander and senior defensive back Eric Lemke in the first half — the Patriots struggled to get an efficient offensive rhythm.

Issaquah’s offense, led by senior quarterback Ethan Kalin, rallied for 23 points in the first two quarters, with a score of 23-7 at halftime.

Lemke, a 250 pound starting tight end, sustained a knee injury before halftime and was sidelined for the remainder of the contest.

Liberty will face the Sammamish Totems at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 at Liberty.

In other area action, the Hazen Highlanders (2-0) won their second non-league game 17-14 Friday against the Cedarcrest at Renton Stadium.
