The Liberty-Benton Eagles are all that stand in the way of the Patrick Henry Patriots returning to the state semifinals for the first time since 2009.
The Patriots (10-2) are making back-to-back trips to the Division V, Region 18 finals while the Eagles (11-1) took a few years off, not making it this far since 2008 when they made it all the way to the state championship game. The two will lock horns at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Lima Stadium.
