DHS girls win consolation title at Little Axe

DUNCAN BOYS GO 0-3 AT SHORT GRASS

DUNCAN — Having lost 12 of their first 14 games, it’s probably safe to say the Duncan Lady Demons were a team in need of a confidence boost.

They got just that over the weekend at the Little Axe Tournament in Norman, as they followed up an opening round loss with a win over Santa Fe South on Friday before claiming the consolation title with a 39-32 win over Little Axe on Saturday.

“Any win, at this point, is a good win, and for the girls to get a couple of them, that’s only going to help,” said Duncan coach Aaron Minor. “You enter every tournament with the goal of, that if you don’t win the championship, you at least want to win two games. That was our goal coming in and we were able to do that.”

Senior Jamie Carberry led Duncan (4-12) with 14 points Saturday, while junior Rainy Sanford had 12.

“We actually played pretty well as a team,” Minor said. “Little Axe was making a run late, but we handled the pressure well, stepped to the line and hit free throws.”

BOYS

Since losing a heartbreaker in the championship of their own Chisholm Trail Holiday Shootout, tournaments haven’t been so kind to the Duncan Demons.

After going 0-3 at the East Central Tournament earlier this month, the Demons again came away without a win, this time at the Short Grass  Tournament in Altus.

After falling to Eisenhower in the first round, Duncan lost 60-53 to Chickasha on Friday, before dropping a 64-57 contest to the host school on Saturday.

Duncan led Altus 38-33 at halftime, but a 17-5 deficit in the third quarter gave the Bulldogs the lead and all the momentum they would need for the victory.

Senior Jack Braught led Duncan for the third straight game, posting 18 points, while junior DeAndre Vermaire had 11 and senior Cade Baldwin finished with seven points. Juniors Isiah Erving and JeMario McCoy each had seven points.

The Demons (5-12) have lost nine straight.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
