Demons aim for upset at home

DUNCAN — As former 16-time World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair once said, “To be the man, you gotta beat the man.”

Starting today at 5 p.m., the No. 13 Duncan Demons (9-5) will try and take down the top team in the state, the Carl Albert Titans (11-2).

DHS comes into this important district series on the heels of three straight victories at the Ardmore/Lone Grove Festival.

CAHS meanwhile has also won three straight games, with victories over No. 9 Guthrie, No. 16 Shawnee and No. 11 Class 6A member Westmoore.

Duncan will look to rebound from its last district series, in which it was swept by Lawton MacArthur, dropping the Demons to 4-2 in district play.

The Titans enter with a 5-1 mark in district play, their only loss coming against Chickasha by a 7-6 score on March 26.

These two teams will meet for the second game of this series on Tuesday at Carl Albert with first pitch set for 5 p.m.


It’s been a hectic week for the Central High Bronchos (9-8).

With a sudden coaching change being brought about last Tuesday, CHHS turned to David Bussey to return and lead the Bronchos for the rest of the season.

Today with the visit of Rush Springs (4:30 p.m.), Central High will look to snap a four game losing streak.

These two teams have already met once this season with the Redskins winning 8-5 on March 5.

CHHS will travel to Waurika on Tuesday for a matchup against the Eagles starting at 6 p.m., before traveling to Indiahoma on Thursday and hosting Ninnekah on Friday night.


While last week might have started out bad for the Bray-Doyle Donkeys, they sure won’t argue with the way it ended.

B-D snapped a three game losing streak at home Friday night with a 4-3 victory over Central High.

Today, head coach Cody Tutwiler and his squad will look to add to the streak when they host Healdton beginning at 4:30 p.m. beginning a four-game homestand.

These two teams have already met once this season, with the Donkeys claiming a convincing 8-0 victory on the road against the Bulldogs.

The homestand will continue on Tuesday afternoon when Lexington comes to visit Donkey Field, before Elmore City-Pernell comes calling on Thursday and Wayne goes against the Donkeys on Friday.

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.
