District Opener Dominance

Demon offense takes control for victory

DUNCAN — The Demons took care of the business they needed to Friday night.

The Duncan High School football team won its District 1-5A opener 61-6 against Capitol Hill at Halliburton Stadium.

“We took care of business in all three phases of the game,” said Demon coach Jim Holloway. “It’s hard to get players to play error free against that type of team.”

He added he was happy to get many of the younger players worked into the game.

“There’s not many opportunities to go that deep into the lineup,” Holloway said.

“We played five quarterbacks,” he added. “I don’t think I have ever done that.”

The number of quarterbacks who played for Duncan wasn’t because of poor play. It seemed no matter who lined up under center, ther Demons were in control. The Demons dominated on offense, tallying 456 yards to Capitol Hill’s 153.

Capitol Hill scored its only touchdown late in the first half, after a 3-yard rund by Quantino Hall. The younger Duncan players who took the field in the second half kept Capitol Hill scoreless, with a defensive stop on fourth down at the Demons’ 9-yard line and a forced fumble that Scott Jones recovered.

Duncan opened the game strong as senior quarterback Connor Kelly scored on a 48-yard run on just the Demons’ third offensive play of the game. He would later add a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Je’Mario McCoy added a 6-yard touchdown run to cap Duncan’s first-quarter scoring.

By halftime, the Demons led 41-6. They added an 8-yard touchdown run by Mason Hightower, an interception that Nathan Clark returned 33 yards for a score, and an 11-yard touchdown run by Bryce Byford.

The Demons then shut out Capitol Hill in the second half while adding more to their score. In the third quarter, Hightower rushed for a 5-yard touchdown. In the fourth, sophomore quarterback Spencer Cagg broke loose for a 91-yard touchdown run.

Duncan’s final score came after Austin Mitchell rushed for two yards and fumbled, but teammate Dillen Seeberger was there to recover the ball and take it 28 yards into the end zone.

The Demons rushed for 405 yards on 37 carries. Hightower had the most touches, with eight carries for 68 yards. Cagg’s big play gave him 107 yards rushing on just two touches.

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.
