DUNCAN — Although the Duncan football team had a good defensive outing, a few miscues on offense and special teams allowed the Tigers to beat the Demons 28-0 in District 1-5A play Friday night.

Duncan got into the red zone on its first drive but couldn’t score. It then became a defensive battle, until Duncan’s first offensive drive of the second quarter. A fumbled snap was recovered by Ardmore’s Wendell Williamson, who returned it 20 yards for a touchdown.

The Demons then got just 18 yards on a punt, allowing Ardmore to capitalize and score again before halftime.

In the fourth quarter, after Duncan recovered an Ardmore fumble, the Demons turned the ball right back to the Tigers. Kydric Knox then scored a 30-yard touchdown to put Ardmore up 21-0.

A miscue on a Demon punt gave the Tigers the ball at the Duncan 5-yard line, leading to their final score of the game.

“We made too many mistakes against a good football team,” said Demon coach Jim Holloway. “We never quit playing, but we never quit making mistakes, which is not characteristic of us.”
