The Duncan High School football team will look to improve its district record to 2-0 as it travels to Altus this Friday.
In the past 64 meetings between the two teams, Altus holds a 32-31-1 edge over the Demons. The two teams first played each other in 1921, a game that Altus won 27-9.
But in the last four seasons, the advantage has gone to the Demons, who have won each meeting between the teams.
The Bulldogs won in double overtime against Chickasha last week, meaning Friday’s game could have large implications as to who advances past district play.
In other games this weekend:
* Marlow vs. Mount St. Mary: After a tough 15-14 loss to Jones to open district play, the Outlaws will look to keep themselves in the hunt for a playoff trip as they host Mount St. Mary for homecoming. St. Mary opened with a district win last week,
* Comanche vs. Mangum: The Indians were idle last week because their schedule opponent, Riverside, cancelled its season after not having enough players. Mangum is coming off a 36-34 victory against Hinton last week.
* Velma-Alma at Wilson: The Comets gave Ringling a run for its money last week, but a couple of late Ringling scores allowed the defending Class A champions the win. Wilson, meanwhile, gave Healdton a run for its money last week despite losing 22-14.
* Empire vs. Walters: The Bulldogs, after a slow start against Rush Springs, finished strong and look to continue their winning ways in district this week. Their opponent, Walters, defeated Bray-Doyle 52-36 last week.
* Bray-Doyle vs. Rush Springs: Meanwhile, the Donkeys will take on the team that Empire faced last week. Rush Springs, despite its 0-3 start to the season, is considered one of the better teams in District 4-1A.
* Central High vs. Paoli: The Bronchos are emerging as one of the favorites to win District 2B. They’ve run the table in their first three district games and now get a Paoli squad that beat Macomb 36-6 last week. Central High, though, shut out Macomb 47-0 Sept. 20.
