Lady Demons fall in rematch with Elgin

DUNCAN — In their first meeting against the Elgin Lady Owls on Nov. 27, the Lady Demons struggled to maintain their offense against the smothering press by Elgin.

Thursday night in meeting number two between these two teams, it was all about the rebounding.

Despite cutting the Lady Owls lead to 14-8 in the first quarter, second and third chance points were ultimately what doomed Duncan and gave EHS a 61-29 victory in the first round of the Chisholm Trail Holiday Shootout.

“Tonight we played them (Elgin) much better than we did the first time,” Duncan coach Aaron Minor said. “We’ve got to be able to get where we play four quarters. The main thing tonight was rebounding. They just whipped us on that all night. If we can start being better rebounding, we’ll start to win some games.”

Even though the Lady Demons weren’t out of the game at the end of the third at 38-23, the Lady Owls and in particular Ally Short changed that in a flash.

Short nailed four three-point shots in the fourth quarter as Elgin went on a 23-6 run, which Duncan simply had no answer for.

DHS could get no closer than 14 points in the second half, as the Lady Owls flexed their muscles down low getting more than enough rebounds in the process.

“I don’t think we were prepared for the man-to-man defense and that threw us for a loop,” Senior point guard Jamie Carberry said. “It’s pretty frustrating when you can’t score or get a shot off out there. But when you have a defender like Jentry Holt on you then it’s hard to do anything offensively.”

Elgin took an early 10-2 lead before Duncan made a contest out of it, ending the first quarter down 18-8.

But, the offense struggled to maintain a strong pace in the second quarter and the Lady Demons found themselves down 26-13 at the half.

Elgin finished the night shooting 7-for-22 from outside the arc, while the Lady Demons shot 4-of-11. At the free throw line, Duncan went 6-for-8, while the Lady Owls were 5-of-8.

“They (Elgin) didn’t do anything to just jump out to a lead,” Minor said. “It’s just a slow process where they are going to gradually separate themselves from us. Elgin missed enough shots to where if we get rebounds then it’s a close game.”

Jamie Carberry finished the game as the leading scorer for the Lady Demons (1-6) with 15 points followed by Paityn Bower with six points.  Quita Carr put in five points, while Kortney Brown added four points.

Elgin was paced by Jentry Holt who led all scorers with 17 points, followed by Ally Short with 12 points. Sam Grubb put in 10 points.

Duncan now drops into the consolation bracket, where the Lady Demons will play Guthrie today at 1 p.m.

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.
