DHS goes 0-2 at home

DUNCAN — During the course of this season, Duncan wrestling has had a near flawless record at home in duals.

Unfortunately, in the span of one night, the Demons suffered as many losses at Duncan Gymnasium as they have all season in the friendly confines. Against class 4A powerhouse Tuttle, and class 3A Plainview the Demons found the going very rough as they fell by scores of 50-19 and 34-32.

“Tuttle is Tuttle,” Duncan coach Kevin Kelly said. “They’re nationally ranked and have multiple returning state champions. They are going to have several kids win state championships this year. It’s hard to compete against a loaded team like that especially when your short handed.”

An already uphill task wasn’t made any easier for the Demons as a result of forfeits in the 106, 145 and 195 pound divisions.

There were some bright moments, though, as Austin Drake won his match at 138 pounds with a 9-4 decision over Brady Bernard.

Connor Kelly picked up an impressive pinfall victory over Seth Shelton in the 152 pound division, while Christian Carnahan claimed a 14-4 major decision win over Austin Elam.

A couple of heartbreaking losses also followed as Brandon Williams lost a 7-6 decision to Wesley Boatman at 182 pounds, only after officials concurred with the scorers table to determine Tuttle had earned an extra point when it looked like overtime was going to happen at 6-6.

Cameron McGill did go into overtime against Tuttle’s Dustin Mason in the 220 pound match, but ultimately fell in triple overtime 3-2. Against the Indians of Plainview, MarkWae Sanders made sure his team had a chance to win with a pin over Tyler Lawrence in the 113 pound match, but Stephen West refused to be pinned by Jett Gray in the 120 pound match. While Gray won the bout 7-3, Plainview won the dual 34-32. “Jett dominated the match, but it’s hard to pin someone who doesn’t want to be pinned,” Kelly said. “There were a couple of matches we should have won, but it’s just one of those deals.” Connor Kelly got his second victory of the night at 152 pounds with a 14-0 win over Isaac Barnes, while McGill got some redemption with a pinfall win over Dorian Fagan. Drake (145), Hicks (126) and Tyler Vanoven (160 pounds) also won their matches in the dual against the Indians. Duncan will make the short journey to Marlow for a Stephens County dual on Thursday night as the Demons will take on the Outlaws in the regular season finale with matches beginning at 7 p.m.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
