Demons slam Ardmore in dual

DUNCAN — Another home dual, another opponent smacked down by Duncan.

It took less than 45 minutes for the Demons to handle their business against the Tigers on Tuesday night, as DHS kept up its impressive home record with a 70-12 victory.

“I knew Ardmore was down a little bit, only having eight wrestlers,” Duncan coach Kevin Kelly said. “I told my kids before we came out to use this as a chance to get better. Some of our kids needed some time on their feet to work on takedowns. They came out hard and took care of business.”

By the time Daniel Moore took to the mat for the heavyweight match, the Demons had already clinched the victory up 70-6.

Forfeits in the 120, 145, 170 and 182 pound divisions helped give DHS the upper hand throughout the dual.

Moore didn’t fair well in the final match of the evening however, as he was pinned at the 1:35 mark of the first period.

While the Tigers used rock, paper, scissors to decide their first wrestler of the night at 106 pounds, Duncan’s Dustin Chase was in no mood to play around.

Chase used his quickness and speed to over power Ardmore’s Lamis Archibald, pinning him just one minute and 30 seconds into the first period.

Perhaps the biggest noise of the evening came in the 220 pound match as DHS’ Cameron McGill and AHS’ Brendon Hemmingway locked horns.

McGill not only showed off his power, slamming Hemmingway several times to the mat, but also showcased his shooting ability which led to a pin with 20 seconds remaining in the second period.

“I thought my match was going to be tougher than it was,” McGill said. “It felt good shooting, because Coach Kelly is always getting after me about that. Usually when I lose my matches by one point, then it’s because I didn’t shoot so it felt really good.”

“I was proud of Cameron,” Kelly added. “He’s been struggling with his shot lately. I told him tonight I wanted him to work on his feet as much as possible and shoot about three or four times. He did well out there.”

Jett Gray was the lone Demon wrestler to not win by pinfall on the night as he defeated Grayson Sralla in the 126 pound match by a score of 11-2.

Duncan will be back at home for a dual against Durant Tuesday Jan. 22 with matches beginning at 5 p.m. for the junior high and 6 p.m. for the varsity.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.
