Jordan Cabanban and the Liberty Eagles have an 18-0 record this season.

Skyler Hadler scored the game’s lone goal Tuesday with 9 minutes, 55 seconds remaining in the second half to give the Liberty Eagles a rare state berth in field hockey.

The top-seeded Eagles beat No. 4 Broad Run 1-0 in the semifinals of the Class 4 Region D tournament at home in Bealeton to advance to the final Thursday at home against No. 2 Heritage, which defeated No. 3 Kettle Run in the semifinals.

Hadler scored the winning goal off of a penalty-corner play that kept the Eagles undefeated at 18-0. They have outscored opponents 68-8 this season en route to the Class 4 Northwestern District regular season and tournament championships.

So, on Nov. 12, Liberty will play in the state quarterfinals against either Eastern View or Chancellor, both from Region 4C.
