The Dodge City Red Demons suffered their toughest loss of the season on Friday, falling to Hutchinson 72-34.
The Red Demons were first on the board with a touchdown run from senior quarterback Caden Walters. After the 7-0 lead, the Salthawks responded with a touchdown and then an onside kick that they recovered. The kick resulted in three points for Hutchinson.
The Salthawks outscored Dodge City 41-7 to close out the first half. Walters found senior wide receiver Dayton McGroarty twice in the end zone in the second half. Senior receiver Eric Reid was also on the receiving end of a touchdown pass in the second half for Dodge City.
A playoff spot does not look like it will be in the cards for Dodge City (4-4, 3-0) after dropping their first two district games. However, the Red Demons will head to Garden City for the hatchet game where the WAC title will also be on the line next Friday.
