For the second straight game running Tuesday night, the Duncan Lady Demons soccer team was involved in a game that featured lots of goals scored.
Unfortunately, DHS was on the wrong end of the scoreline this time around against the Lady Wolverines from Lawton High.
A 5-1 halftime deficit was too much to overcome on the night as LHS finished off the game in the second half and won 10-3 at Cameron Stadium.
“Nobody was expecting this,” Duncan coach Delydia Gay said. “We just didn’t show up today. I guess we thought we could just win this game because we won the last. Our little mistakes just added up. It just got to be too big of a hole to dig out of in the end.”
Duncan was perhaps unlucky to not have cut into the deficit after halftime, when Stephanie Wainscott’s low shot bounced off the post at the 33:50 mark.
“We can sit here all night and discuss what might have happened with that shot,” Gay said. “You just never know, it could have but you never know. We scored pretty early into the second half, but I’d like to think if that went in it might have helped us.”
Moments later, the Lady Wolverines cashed in on the good fortune they had received as Bailee Cox managed to get her shot away just before Duncan goalkeeper Madison Williams could stop it, making it 6-1 at the 31:54 mark.
However, the Lady Demons did get a goal back just over seven minutes later when senior Courtney Moore slammed home a free kick from outside the box to make it 6-2 on the night.
Any momentum DHS thought it had was quickly taken away just under two minutes later when Seci Ramirez sent a dipping shot into the net to make it 7-2.
Bailee Cox got her fourth goal of the game at the 18:44 mark, just moments after completing her hat trick to make it 9-2 in favor of Lawton High.
Brianna Chacon made it 10-2 with a dribbler that found the net at the 14:12 mark.
Duncan managed to get one more back as Shai Johnson took advantage of a goalkeeping error in to score her fourth goal of the season with 7:18 left in the game.
Johnson earlier scored Duncan’s first goal of the game at the 21:49 mark, making the game 3-1 at that point.
Cox along with Carla Blizzard (2) and Brittny Warn scored the other goals for the Lady Wolverines in the first half.
Duncan goalkeeper Madison Williams kept her composure in the contest, finishing the game with a total of 17 saves.
The Lady Demons will have the rest of the week off as they prepare for their next home contest on Tuesday Mar. 12 at 6 p.m. against Lawton Eisenhower.

First-year head coach Brent Crow started out the first Comanche baseball practice of the year Saturday asking his players if it would be possible for them to come a half-hour early on Sunday.
The Indians have just two practices before they open up against No. 3 rival Marlow at home Monday, and Crow needs as much time with the players as possible. The players agreed to come at 1:30 p.m. instead of 2, but Crow knows getting ready for the Outlaws in two days will still be a tough task.
