There’s a reason why Liberal has won 10 consecutive Western Athletic Conference championships.

Great Bend found that out Monday when the No. 3 Redskins defeated the No. 5 Panthers 3-1 in a critical WAC road game.

The loss eliminated Great Bend from contention for the WAC title and sets up a WAC championship game between Liberal (5-2) and Dodge City (5-2).

The Red Demons lost back-to-back WAC games this season with a 3-2 loss to Great Bend and a 1-0 shutout to the Garden City Buffaloes.

Liberal dropped its to WAC games to Dodge City (2-0) and Garden City (2-0).

Liberal redeemed its loss to Garden City 3-1 on Oct. 4 and will have a chance to avenge its loss to Dodge City Thursday.

The Redskins have won eight straight heading into the regular season finale while Dodge City will travel to Liberal with a five-game winning streak.

Liberal has won 10 consecutive WAC titles, and Dodge City has been the runner-up for many of those.

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

National Beef will also provide 250 hamburgers and 100 hotdogs to those in attendance.

Junior varsity begins at 4 p.m. with the varsity game to follow.
