Lady Demons get back in win column

DUNCAN — What a difference a week makes.

One week after surrendering 10 goals to Lawton High, fans were treated to a much better performance by the Duncan Lady Demons Tuesday night at Halliburton Stadium.

DHS showed grit and determination as Stephanie Wainscott collected the game winning goal for the Lady Demons with less than 10 minutes to go to claim a 2-1 victory over Lawton Eisenhower.

“We talked about being mentally prepared to play tonight,” Duncan coach Delydia Gay said. “I thought we came out and played very well. In the second half Eisenhower came out a little stronger, but we played hard. We showed this week that our performance last week was not our best stuff, and that we can play like a really good team.”

Wainscott’s goal came off a long shot from Courtney Moore which was punched away by Eisenhower goalkeeper Lexi James.

After Shai Johnson was unable to connect with the rebound, Wainscott slotted home the goal, which put her team back in front.

Moments earlier though at the 10:16 mark, it was a completely different mood as the Lady Eagles Sam Snow tied the game with a curling shot which went in off the inside of the post past DHS keeper Maddy Williams.

“I got a little too close to my wall and just wasn’t in position,” Williams said. “Once I saw it curving then I knew it was going to be bad. This game definitely boosted my confidence and it feels good to win at home.”

Johnson was able to score for the third straight game this season, when she collected a pass from Moore at the 30:16 mark of the first half and slotted home to give Duncan a 1-0 lead.

“I saw the ball coming and then saw the defender coming so I knew I had to kick it,” Johnson said about her goal. “I was feeling the pressure and knew I was about to get knocked over so I just kicked it and luckily it went in.”Moore was unlucky not to have scored as well as she hit the post three times during the course of the match.

Duncan improves to 2-1 on the season, and will be off until March 28.

Poll

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.
