DUNCAN — Though their games were an hour and a half apart from each other, the Duncan’s baseball and girls’ golf teams could not avoid Mother Nature Tuesday, with each of their contests being rescheduled because of cold and rainy conditions.

The Demons baseball team moved its home game against Del City to Thursday at 5 p.m. and the girls golf Regional Tournament was rescheduled to Wednesday.

Duncan baseball is fresh off a dramatic back and forth win against the Eagles, a 21-11 victory that took eight innings to be decided. Duncan had held a 10-3 lead after three and half innings, but Del City stormed back to tie the game at in the fourth. After Duncan plated a run in the top of the fifth to regain the lead, Del City forced extra innings with a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh. The Demons left no room for a comeback in the eighth, scoring 10 runs to pull ahead for good. Senior Ryan Haley led the way for Duncan with four hits.

The Lady Demons will hope to build on the success it had at Monday’s Regional Preview, when it ended the first 18 holes tied for first but fell in a playoff to Deer Creek to finish in second place.
