Demons struggle at Bill Tipton Tournament

DUNCAN — While the weekend as a whole didn’t go according to plan, the Duncan Demons baseball team did manage to snag a quality win at the Bill Tipton Tournament at Carl Albert.


After scoring in the first two innings, the Demons struggled the rest of the way against Blanchard as the Lions scored five runs in the fifth and sixth innings to claim victory.

Duncan managed to tie the game at 3-3 in the second inning, before BHS re-took the lead in the third inning.

Even though the Demons scored three runs in the fifth inning, the rally eventually fell short.

Cade Baldwin collected two hits in the game, with Ryan Haley also getting a hit.

Taber Kaspereit slapped a two-RBI single in the game as well.


Against the No. 11 Shawnee Wolves, the Demons stepped up their game.

In a game that had multiple lead changes, it was Duncan sealing the game with five runs in the sixth and seventh innings.

Duncan held a 4-2 lead after the first inning, before the Demons made it 5-2 in the second inning.

Shawnee then tied the game at 5-5 in the third inning, before DHS re-took the lead at 6-5.

Once again, the Wolves tied the game at 6-6 in the fourth inning, and looked in position to win after plating two runs in the fifth inning.

However, Duncan wouldn’t be denied as the Demons rallied for the win.

Cade Baldwin continued his strong hitting going 4-for-5 with five RBI in the game.

John Campbell also collected two hits, including a two-RBI single.

Scott Cooper also got two hits in the game, along with pitching four solid innings of relief on the mound.


Against the Red Tornadoes of Clinton, the Demons bats were unable to pull off another rally.

CHS plated five total runs in the first and second innings, as Duncan fell short.

DHS’ runs came in the fifth and seventh innings, as Cade Baldwin finished with three singles.

Bryce Byford went 2-for-4 in the game, with Hunter Phillips getting an RBI single.
