After falling behind to Durant just 42 seconds into the game, the  Duncan boys’ soccer team managed to tie proceedings at 1-1 with 29:58 left in regulation, with its season on the line.

Then, with seven minutes remaining in the second overtime, Duncan caught a lifeline as a scramble inside the penalty box resulted in the game-winning goal.

7. Indians shock Comets in opener

With his team down 18-8 at halftime, senior quarterback Kale Reed managed to bring CHS back with four touchdowns to help slip past arch-rival Velma-Alma 30-26 in the opening game of the season.

The game winning drive occurred with 1:09 left in regulation as the senior led his team on a seven-play 60-yard drive.

8. Empire claims signature victory

Defense was the name of the game when Rush Springs and Empire met at Ric Johnson Memorial Field.

But, in the end it was Dillon Twigg playing hero for the Bulldogs, scoring the only touchdown of the evening, lifting Empire to a 7-6 win.

The 2012-13 Duncan boys’ basketball team gave fans an early-season thrill as they rallied to send the game to overtime against their rival. Fatigue and foul trouble, though, got the best of the Demons who finally faded in the third overtime.

10. Demons get win at Ardmore
