The Dodge City Red Demons softball team lost both games to Garden City Monday, stumbling 6-5 in extra innings, then 6-4 in the second game.

The losses were particularly souring for the Red Demons, who watched the Buffaloes clinch the Western Athletic Conference crown outright as a result.

The Red Demons led 5-3 going into the bottom of the seventh in the first game before the Buffs tied it and sent it to extras, and also led 4-1 late in the second game before Garden City accomplished another comeback.

Dodge City falls to 12-4 overall and 2-4 in WAC play.
