Dodge City saw a 10-point halftime lead over Wichita Southeast whittled to two in the third quarter, but the Red Demons found their second wind to pull away from the Buffaloes 47-35 in the consolation round of Friday’s Mid America Classic.

The Red Demons will play Valley Center in Saturday’s 3:45 fifth-place game, while Wichita Southeast plays for seventh against Hays in the 2 p.m. kickoff game.

Dodge City sprinted to a 13-2 first-quarter lead, but the Buffaloes managed to inch closer over the next two quarters.

Southeast drew as close as 28-26, but Dodge City finished the third quarter on a 8-2 rip and then protected the lead from there.

Tia Bradshaw led Dodge City with 19 points. Jessie Harshberger scored eight points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

Alex Arline led Southeast with 11 points and Jada Williams chipped in with 10. Arline was perfect from 3-point by going 3-for-3.

A big difference was rebounding as Dodge City pulled down 36 to just 27 for the Buffs.
