For the second time this season, the Dodge City Red Demons (9-1, 5-0) beat their Western Conference Athletic rival Garden City. On Thursday the Dodge City boys soccer team beat the Buffs 3-1.
After a scoreless first half, sophomore Joshua Don Juan scored to put the Red Demons up 1-0, 10-minutes into the second half. After a second Dodge City goal, Garden City got on the board after converting a penalty kick.
Junior Jose Ubanda scored the final goal for the Red Demons with 13 minutes to go in the game.
“In the first half we didn’t finish the plays that we were supposed to and didn’t score goals when we were supposed to but in the second we picked it up,” head coach Saul Hernandez said. Dodge City has been dominant so far this season in WAC play. They have outscored the other four teams 23-3 in five conference games this season.
The Red Demons have three stars on their team shirts to symbolize the three WAC titles that they have won. This year’s team is looking to add a fourth star.
“We’re going to take it one game at a time but we’re still looking to stay undefeated in the WAC,” Hernandez said.
Dodge City will play their next three games at home starting Tuesday against Hays. In the first meeting this season the Red Demons beat Hays 10-0.
