It came down to the very end in both the boys and girls games on Friday when the Dodge City High School basketball teams traveled to Goddard-Eisenhower.
The Dodge City girls (2-2) came up just short on Friday in their 52-51 loss to Eisenhower.
Free throw shooting turned out to be the biggest differentiating factor on the night. The Red Demons struggled at the free throw line, hitting just 5-of-12 attempts. The Tigers connected on 19-of-24 attempts which included a perfect 11-of-11 performance from their leading scorer Mallory Miller. Miller scored a game-high 24 points.
Senior Jessica Harshberger and junior Tia Bradshaw led the way for Dodge City. The pair of guards both finished with 13 points.
The Red Demons boys team (1-3) fell to the Tigers 51-49 in the second game of the night.
Both teams will have a quick turnaround as they will host Stanton County on Saturday. The girls are scheduled to tipoff at 3:45 p.m. with the boys following them at 5:15 p.m.
