Demons look to get back on track

DUNCAN — With the regular season quickly winding down for area teams, this week could prove pivotal when it comes to playoff time.

One team looking to break out of an unwanted streak is the No. 14 Duncan Demons (9-8), who will complete their two-game district series against the No. 4 Chickasha Fighting Chicks this afternoon.

Friday night saw CHS take the first game of the series, 3-1, which sent the Demons to their fifth straight district loss.

Following the conclusion of this series, DHS will travel to Carl Albert for the Bill Tipton Tournament which is scheduled to begin on Thursday with the Demons facing Class 4A Blanchard and Shawnee on the first day of play.


After having the rain wash away its last game against Ryan, the Empire Bulldogs will be back at work this afternoon (5:30 p.m.) at home to Ringling.

EHS enters this week having won three out of its last five games, and will be looking for more as the Bulldogs try and get back to .500.

A home contest against Waurika will be on the menu for Tuesday, before a rematch against Temple takes place on Thursday for the Bulldogs.


It was a mixed bag over the weekend for the Comanche Indians (5-10).

After defeating Tishomingo in their opening game, CHS was shutout by No. 10 Kingston at the LCC Tournament in Lone Grove.

Today begins the start of another busy week for the Indians, as Sulphur comes to the Field of Dreams with first pitch set for 4:30 p.m.

Tuesday will see old rivals clash at Jake’s Field in Velma as CHS will tangle with the Comets, before participating in the Jake Leffler Comet Invitational wood-bat Tournament beginning on Thursday.

Comanche will meet Elmore City-Pernell in its first game of the tournament with first pitch scheduled for Noon from Ringling High School.

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.
