Demons top Spartans in district

DUNCAN — It was a win, but Demon coach Jim Holloway believed his players were still thinking about events a week earlier.

Duncan (3-2, 3-4) topped Southeast (1-4, 2-6) 46-8 in Friday’s District 1-5A contest at Halliburton Field.

But although the scoreboard indicated a decisive win, Holloway said, “Emotionally, that ball game last week took a lot out of us.”

He referred to the 71-56 defeat Duncan took Oct. 17 at Lawton MacArthur.

Holloway said he kept the offensive schemes basic against Southeast. Most of the Demon starters did not play in the second half. Not that they had to, as they led 40-0 at halftime.

“Our young kids played defense really well,” Holloway said.

Case in point was sophomore Collen Klingensmith, who picked off two passes. Senior Phillip Llanos and freshman Dillen Seeberger also had interceptions.

The Demon coach said the team didn’t have any significant injuries — a good thing, as the Demons have already lost one of their starting offensive linemen for the season. Junior Kolton Anderson recently had surgery for an ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago against Ardmore.

Senior running back Je’Mario McCoy tallied 129 yards rushing on 17 carries in the first half and scored twice. He didn’t play in the second half, allowing junior Stacee Morrison to show his stuff. Morrison rushed for 58 yards on seven carries, including a 30-yard touchdown run. He also scored in the first half.

Senior quarterback Connor Kelly added 40 yards rushing on six carries. His longest run came when he dropped back to pass, had to evade Southeast defenders, but broke a tackle and ran the ball 36 yards into the end zone.

Junior Mason Hightower took over QB duties in the second quarter and three a 4-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Byford. Nathan Clark had the other score on a 4-yard run.

The Demons had 309 yards of total offense to Southeast’s 180. Most of the Spartans’ yardage came from senior running back Denzell Williams, who rushed for 58 yards on 31 carries and scored Southeast’s only touchdown. He also caught a two-point conversion pass.

“He can play,” Holloway said. “He could play for everyone in the district.”

The Demons will next face Del City, which got past Chickasha 14-12 Friday. But despite the close score, Holloway said the Demons must prepare well for the Eagles.

“We have got to have a good week of practice,” he said. “We have to play better than we did tonight.”
