Duncan boys, girls fall to MacArthur

DUNCAN — For the Duncan Demons, the third time was anything but a charm against the No. 7 Lawton MacArthur Highlanders.

After being within eight points at 36-28 going into the halftime break, things fell apart in the third quarter as the Demons were outscored 26-2, and Mac cruised to a comfortable 71-42 victory at Duncan Gymnasium.

Duncan has now lost 11 straight games.

“We played well in the first half, but came out flat in the third,” Duncan coach Mikel Davison said. “Mac was scoring and we were just missing shots. Turnovers and missed shots were what led to them having momentum. We just never quite recovered from it.”

Duncan did manage to hold the Highlanders to just nine points in the fourth quarter, but by then the damage had already been done as Mac claimed its second victory in Duncan Gymnasium this season.

Cade Baldwin led the scoring for the Demons (5-14) with 12 points on the night, with Isiah Ervin putting in 10 points on the night. Jack Braught added seven points in the contest.

MacArthur (12-6) was led by Duris Graham with 15 points, followed by Chris Pendell with 13 points and Trace Cook with 12 points.


Since a second place finish in the Stephens County tournament just last week, the Marlow Outlaws have been struggling to get back in the win column.

The trend continued Friday night at

Outlaw Gymnasium as the Pauls Valley Panthers (2-11) escaped with a close two-point victory.

Despite holding a 29-26 lead at halftime, the Outlaws couldn’t capitalize in the second half as PVHS outscored Marlow 23-18, including a 16-7 run in the third quarter.

Marlow (11-9) held a 16-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Zac Beasler led the Outlaws with 14 points on the night with Wes Coast and Kirby Neufeld both scoring eight points in the contest. Sean Hazel added six points, with Jackson Huddleston putting in five points. Braeden O’Dell scored four points.

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.
