The Spiders defense took center stage after halftime, forcing two Liberty (2-2) turnovers and blocking a John Lunsford field goal attempt in the fourth quarter.

Late in the fourth quarter, Spiders' defensive back Wayne Pettus broke up two passes in a row from Josh Woodrum, ending a 9-play drive by Liberty on the game's final possession.
