DUNCAN — Senior night is always an emotional experience for players and parents alike.

For the Duncan Demons and Lady Demons, they hope their last hoorah at Halliburton Stadium is a victorious one.

Western Heights will provide the opposition this evening starting at 5 p.m. for the Lady Demons and 7 p.m. for the Demons.

“I expect our girls to come out and be excited to play,” Duncan coach Delyida Gay said. “We want to send our seniors out with a win, and get another win we deserve in district. It’s heartbreaking knowing we didn’t make the playoffs considering the close games we lost. But our girls never lost their pride and I expect them to be ready for Western Heights.”

Courtney Moore, Katelyn Hicks, Victoria Demar, Tabetha Cochran and Maddy Williams will be the Lady Demon players honored before the game.

The Lady Jets come into this contest with an overall record of 3-7, having lost five out of their last six games, which included a 10-0 defeat to Noble last Friday.

Duncan meanwhile, broke its own losing streak against El Reno last Friday night, in which two Lady Demon players scored their first goals of the season.

Meanwhile in the boys contest, the name of the game is going to be defense for the Demons.

Against the No. 3 and undefeated Jets, DHS will look to end its season with a bang.

“I’m expecting the seniors to come out and show they deserve to be on the All-State team,” Duncan coach Marcus Williams said. “And for our younger kids it’s a chance for them to show they deserve to be starting next season.”

WHHS has scored more than five goals in its last four games, while not allowing its opponents to more than two goals in that same span.

“Western Heights has scored the most goals in the state,” Williams said. “I hope our guys come out and get back to what they do best and not lay down.”

The Demons will be honoring five senior players during the senior night festivities.
