Demons, Indians test each other

COMANCHE — The Duncan and Comanche wrestlers got to test each other out before this weekend’s tournament in Duncan.

The Demons prevailed 39-22 but Comanche coach Jason Miller was happy with the way his younger wrestlers performed against a quality Duncan group.

“I told the kids in the locker room before the match that, win or lose, you gain respect by fighting,” Miller said. “We fought them hard every match.”

Demon coach Kevin Kelly said that his wrestlers were a little sluggish, but attributed that to a hard practice Wednesday.

“We had a couple of kids who didn’t make weight Tuesday (against Chickasha), so I worked them hard (Wednesday),” Kelly said. “It seemed like we got a little tired. But for the most part, we fought hard and the effort was good.”

The two teams will now find out how they measure up to some of the best wrestlers in southwestern Oklahoma. Duncan hosts its own wrestling tourney Friday and Saturday. Comanche will be among the teams competing.

Kelly said his wrestlers are gaining confidence and that will be a good thing as they get set for the tournament.

“It will be good to see some of the best wrestlers in our class, and see some really good wrestlers,” he said.

Miller said the additional mat time will only benefit his young wrestlers and he hopes the majority of them can win at least one bout.

“I hope nobody goes two and out,” he said. “I hope everyone gets a couple of wins under their belts. We have a lot of freshmen and this will be a tough test for them.”

The tournament will start with the first round Friday at 6 p.m. Tourney action continues Saturday with the second round at 11 a.m., and continues until the finals at 5 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.
