Demons blanked by Lions at Chickasha

CHICKASHA — With more than a week in-between games, many expected the Duncan Demons soccer team to come out fired up Thursday afternoon against Moore in the first round of the Chickasha Invitational.

Unfortunately, DHS never got out of the blocks as the Lions took advantage of mistakes to score two first half goals and win 2-0 at Hampton Field.

“We didn’t apply any pressure out there at all,” Duncan coach Marcus Williams said. “We weren’t physical or aggressive. It was like we were trying to save energy to play the whole game. If we would have applied pressure then those goals probably wouldn’t have happened.”

Cody Sheldon proved to be the biggest thorn in the Demons side throughout the contest.

With 11:38 left before halftime, Sheldon was sent clean through on goal thanks to a pass from teammate Josh Wright.

As Sheldon approached the Demons goal, DHS’ keeper Saul Garcia ran out in an attempt to dispossess the Lions player, which at first seemed to be successful.

However, Garcia’s effort was thwarted by a shot from Sheldon which found its way into the net on the short side, giving Moore a 2-0 lead.

The deficit could have been much worse for the Demons if not for a feet-first save by Garcia just before halftime.

“Saul played great out there,” Williams said. “It probably could have been at least 6-0 if it hadn’t been for the saves Saul made during the game.”

Josh Adamson, Justin McCall and MarkWae Sanders all registered attempts on goal for Duncan in the second half.

A miscommunication at the back allowed the Lions to get their first goal of the game at the 25:16 mark of the first half.

Sheldon was more than happy to take advantage of the error and slotted home his first goal of the game putting the Lions in front.

Jesse Gonzalez had Duncan’s best effort of the first half with a quality shot on goal at the 24:35 mark just moments after Moore had taken the lead.

Duncan will play on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. against the loser of Capitol Hill/Harrah at Hampton Field in Chickasha.

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.
