Duncan soccer looks to rebound against Durant

DUNCAN — Sometimes it’s not how hard you fall, but how fast you get back up.

This will be the case tonight for the Duncan soccer teams, who will look to even their district records at Durant.

First at 5 p.m. the Lady Demons will look to recover from their first home loss of the season as they will meet the No. 9 Lady Lions, who enter with an overall record of 7-1 on the season.

“I heard the girls had a really good practice on Thursday,” Duncan coach Delydia Gay said. “Unfortunately, I’ve been out sick so I wasn’t able to be there with them. To be honest, I don’t know anything about Durant so we’re going to just handle whatever they throw at us.”

Last season at Halliburton Stadium, a short-handed Lady Demons squad fought hard but was eventually outclassed and defeated 4-0 by the Lady Lions.

Duncan will be looking for production from Stephanie Wainscott, who scored for the second consecutive game Tuesday night against Lawton MacArthur.

Other Lady Demons looking to contribute will be Shai Johnson, Courtney Moore and Autumn Parker as Duncan tries to grab its first district win of the season.

Meanwhile at 7 p.m., the Duncan boys team will also be looking to rebound as the Demons will take on the Lions.

In a thriller of a game last season from Halliburton Stadium, it was Duncan coming out on top in double overtime, thanks to a goal created off a throw in from Jesse Gonzalez.

The Demons will be looking for similar luck tonight as they look to get not only their second victory of the season, but their first district victory of the season.

Justin McCall will be one of the players looked to produce as he scored the only goal for Duncan Tuesday night against the Highlanders at home.

Tuesday night will see both Duncan teams return to district play as they travel to Chickasha.
