Series History

The Red Demons have faced the Grizzlies fourteen times in the storied history of both programs. The Red Demons first played the Grizzlies in 1981 with the Demons winning the inaugural contest by a score of 18-0, while Northwest won the last match up between the teams (35-28), in 1997, before the renewing of the series last season. The overall series record has Dodge City with a (9-5) advantage. On six occasions the Demons and Grizzlies have met with a State Playoff berth on the line. This year’s matchup is a non-district affair.

Dodge City will be attempting to extend its’ current (12) game non-conference regular season winning streak. This is the second of three consecutive contests for the Red Demons versus Wichita City League opponents.
