While Liberal was busy defeating Andover Central 2-0 in the Wichita North Cup Tuesday, Dodge City was doing the Redskins a favor by knocking off Great Bend.

That forced a three-way battle for the Western Athletic Conference title with two key games to go for the Redskins.

Liberal will travel to Great Bend a week from today and must win to stay in the three-way race. In the first match-up with the Panthers, Liberal won 8-3 in the season opener at Redskin Field.

Since then, the Panthers reeled off five straight WAC wins before losing 2-0 to Dodge City Tuesday.

Dodge split with Great Bend this season and lost to Garden City. The Red Demons also defeated the Redskins.

But now Liberal controls its own destiny and continues to improve. If the Redskins defeat Great Bend and then return home to knock off Dodge City, Liberal will win its 11th consecutive WAC title.

The Redskins have won five in a row including three WAC games and will continue to play in the North Cup tournament this weekend before traveling to Great Bend a week from today and hosting Dodge City in the regular season finale and possible WAC championship Oct. 20.

The game against Dodge City has been bought out by National Beef, and admission is free.
