Demons defeat Marlow

MARLOW — With just one week left before dual state, the Duncan Demons wrestling team was looking to work out some cobwebs Thursday night against Marlow.

Forfeits early on combined with two solid pins in two out of the last three matches were more than enough to give DHS a comfortable 36-17 victory over the Outlaws.

“We only had seven matches tonight,” Duncan coach Kevin Kelly said. “There was a tough match at 138 for us and I knew that was going to happen. (Seth) Scarbrough and Connor (Kelly) had a good match and that was another thing we expected, because they both wrestle very similar styles. I just told the kids this was one more chance to correct their mistakes and get better.”

Marlow senior Cody Scroggins made sure his final match at Outlaw Gymnasium ended on a winning note as he claimed a 9-3 decision victory over Austin Drake in the 138 pound match.

Chris Davis gave the Outlaws their most lopsided victory of the night with an 18-3 technical decision over Duncan’s Austin May at 132 pounds.

While there was plenty of strength on display, Duncan’s Christian Carnahan showed off his brains during his match against Nick Yates at 160 pounds.

As both competitors were battling for position standing up, an attempted takedown by Yates backfired as Carnahan was able to manipulate the momentum in his favor, which ultimate led to a pinfall victory for the Demon wrestler at the 1:47 mark of the first period.

“He (Yates) just kind of fell over and I just went with him in the process,” Carnahan said about his match. “I had a lot of frustration from Tuesday night, and this win was good for me. I’ve got a tough match coming up at dual state against the No. 1 seed and I needed to make a statement tonight.”

Brandon Williams collected the other pinfall victory of the evening for Duncan against Marlow’s Quentin Maxfield in the 182 pound match.

Jett Gray (120) also collected a victory for Duncan with a 5-0 win over Marlow’s Logan Knox.

Marlow’s other victory came in the 170 pound match as Brice Shephard won 8-3 over Tyler Vanoven.

Duncan’s focus will now turn to the Class 5A Dual State competition, which will see the Demons begin next Saturday Feb. 9 at Claremore High School.

“We’re probably going to be at full strength next week for dual state,” Kelly said. “Anytime you can put a full lineup in then it’s going to help. It should also help us mentally because we haven’t had a full lineup in a long time. This should put us on the right track.”

  • Demon home game becomes road doubleheader

    The Duncan baseball team will head to Del City for a doubleheader Tuesday after its scheduled home Monday game was postponed.
    Demon coach Tim Hightower said Del City had some transportation issues that kept the Eagles from making it to Duncan. Snow in Del City delayed school buses and one would not have been available to bring the players to Duncan until between 4:30 and 5 p.m. That would mean delaying the start time of Monday’s game until later in the evening, when it would have been cold.
