The Liberty Patriots have done it again. They are the Sunrise Region's football champions again in 2012, completing the quest for the three-peat.

Liberty (11-1) defeated the Coronado Cougars (9-3) Saturday, 59-20, to claim the Sunrise Region title and have advanced to the state title game. This marks the first time the Patriots are in the state title game for football.

“I was extremely happy with the performance of the team against Coronado. It was our best-played game of the year,” Head Coach Rich Muraco said.

The Patriots will now take on local powerhouse Bishop Gorman (12-1) at 12:15 PM Saturday at UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium.

Gorman defeated Reed High School (Reno), 49-24, over the weekend to clinch their spot in the game. This will be the second time the teams meet in as many years.
