Coming off a dominant Homecoming game, the Hays High Indians took on the Dodge City Demons on Oct. 6.

Playing at Dodge City, the Indians came out firing with a 41-yard touchdown run by senior running back Malik Bah. After a defensive stop, junior Carter Graham found junior Jonathan Cano for a 49-yard touchdown pass to lead, 14-0. Towards the end of the first half, sophomore Jonathan Rigler picked off the Demon offense, and Hays led 20-6 going into the half.

To start off the second half, Bah found a hole in the defense and took the ball 67 yards to the house. The Indians did not take their foot off the gas, with senior Cyrus Johnson earning himself an interception. After a few scores from each side, Hays took home the win, 40-20, to improve their record to 4-2.

“[It meant a lot] to help my team get back into the way we needed to be playing and to get us going again. I just wanted to show them how dominant of a team we can really be,” Bah said when asked about the importance of getting back on the field after missing two games with an injury. Bah also set the school record for career rushing yards.

The Indians looked to finish their season off strong, playing at Liberal on Oct. 13 and hosting Topeka for Senior Night on Oct. 20.
