GREAT BEND, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - The Dodge City Lady Demons defeated the Great Bend Lady Panthers 56 to 28 in Great Bend’s final regular-season home game.

Dodge City opened the game with the ball and the first points off a Camree Johnson bucket. Great Bend quickly took the lead with a three-pointer from Sydney Unruh.

The two teams would trade the lead a couple more times before Dodge City took over in the middle of the first quarter.

By the end of the quarter, the Lady Demons stretched their lead to 10 points, 17 to 7.

Dodge City maintained their lead in the second quarter. They led 25 to 14 at the halftime break. The Lady Demons only made one three-pointer in the first half out of seven attempts. They also missed all five free-throws in the first two quarters.

The Lady Demons opened up the game and the lead in the third quarter. The team combined for 21 points thanks to forcing Great Bend to turn the ball over.

The Panthers turned the ball over 17 times in the game. Dodge City took advantage and scored 16 points off those turnovers.

“We played great team basketball with 20 assists tonight,” said Dodge City Head Coach Kelly Snodgrass. “A real unselfish group that just makes the extra pass and wants what’s best for the team.”

Camree Johnson led all scorers with 15 points for the lady Demons. Lauren Gleason contributed 11 points.

“Camree is a very tough matchup. She is a lefty that can go coast to coast. She can step out and hit the outside shot as well. She is a force to guard,” said Coach Snodgrass.

Sydney Unruh led all Lady Panthers with nine points.

Both teams face a quick turnaround. Dodge City hosts Maize South in a Saturday afternoon game while Great Bend travels out to Liberal.
