The Demons took care of the business they needed to Friday night.
The Duncan High School football team won its district opener 61-6 against Capitol Hill at Halliburton Stadium.
“We took care of business in all three phases of the game,” said Demon coach Jim Holloway. “It’s hard to get players to play error free against that type of team.”
He added he was happy to get many of the younger players worked into the game.
“There’s not many opportunities to go that deep into the lineup,” Holloway said.
Duncan opened the game strong as senior quarterback Connor Kelly scored on a 48-yard run on just the Demons’ third offensive play of the game. He would later add a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Je’Mario McCoy added a 6-yard touchdown run to cap Duncan’s first-quarter scoring.
By halftime, the Demons led 41-6. They added an 8-yard touchdown run by Mason Hightower, an interception that Nathan Clark returned 33 yards for a score, and an 11-yard touchdown run by Bryce Byford.
Capitol Hill’s touchdown came late in the second quarter after a 3-yard run by Quantino Hall.
The Demons then shut out Capitol Hill in the second half while adding more to their score. In the third quarter, Hightower rushed for a 5-yard touchdown. In the fourth, sophomore quarterback Spencer Cagg broke loose for a 91-yard touchdown run.
Duncan’s final score came after Austin Mitchell rushed for two yards and fumbled, but teammate Dillen Seeberger was there to recover the ball and take it 28 yards into the end zone.
