Lady Demons can’t catch Cougars

DUNCAN — While the calendar might read a new year, the Duncan Lady Demons are still dealing with the same old problems.

Against the No. 17 Lady Cougars of Ada High School Thursday night, Duncan held the lead for a total of 34 seconds at 1-0 before AHS took over, and eventually won 69-28.

“We’ve been working on adjusting to a man-to-man defense on the fly in practice lately,” Duncan coach Aaron Minor said. “At times we were able to do that really well. That’s about the only positive thing we can take out of this game.”

DHS never quite got back in the game after Ada went on a 16-2 run to end the first quarter, as the Lady Cougars led 16-3.

One big reason DHS struggled throughout the evening was the play of Lady Cougars junior post Aailyah Blakely who finished the game with 16 points and eight rebounds on the night.

By the time the Lady Demons reached double figures for the game, the Lady Cougars were already in cruise control at 32-12 with 1:47 remaining before halftime.

Heading into the break DHS found itself down 38-13.

Cold shooting also hindered the efforts of the Lady Demons on the evening, as they finished 4-for-22 from outside the arc. Ada went 8-for-18 from three-point range.

At the free throw line, Duncan went 8-for-13 while the Lady Cougars were a solid 11-for-12 on the evening.

Perhaps the most crucial stat of the evening was the Lady Cougars holding DHS to single digit scoring for three quarters.

Jamie Carberry led the Lady Demons (1-6) with 11 points on the night, combined with four rebounds.

Rainy Sanford scored nine points with Tania Elix scoring five points, while Nicole Evans registering two points.

“Tania put in a solid effort for us tonight,” Minor said. “She rebounded well during the game. We’ve got some young girls who are doing some good things for us right now. They’ll eventually get better the more they play.”

Other scorers for Ada (5-2) included Sami Jewett with 12 points and two rebounds, followed by Olivia Wells with nine points. McKenzie Sockey and Menee Thomsen each put in seven points.

Duncan will now prepare for the Chickasha Tournament which begins next Thursday Jan. 10 and runs until Jan. 12 at Chickasha High School.

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.
