The Liberty softball team has played plenty of big games against Bethlehem Catholic the past few years.

The Hurricanes lost to the Golden Hawks in the LVC Championship game in both 2011 and 2012.

Liberty actually lost three straight LVC title games from 2010-2012, and lost the District 11 4A title game to Northampton in 2013.

Bethlehem Catholic, meanwhile, is the three-time defending LVC champion.

On Thursday, the two city rivals will open up LVC play against each other in a 4pm start at Liberty.
