Duncan Softball

Coach Jeremy Bates meets with the infield earlier this season. The Lady Demons are now 5-8 on the season after dropping two games Saturday at the Southmoore Festival.

Duncan Softball was trying to build on their big Thursday win on the road but they dropped two games at the Southmoore Festival both by 8-0 scores against Moore and Southmoore.

Against Moore in game number one, in the top of the first, the Lady Demons had one runner reach in the top of the first with Alyssa Childers reaching on a walk, however, she was called out on a double play ball from KK Miller to keep the score at 0-0 heading to the bottom of the first.

Despite allowing a two out double, the Lady Demons kept it at 0-0 as Duncan headed to their second at bat with Moore getting three up and three down to keep the score tied.

The bottom of the second was one that the Lady Demons had trouble getting outs, five runs came across on a double steal, a double, a single and an error doing the damage against Duncan.

In the top half of the third, the Lady Demons got two runners on although two ground outs kept Duncan off the scoreboard and Moore leading 5-0 heading to the bottom of the third.

Moore got one more run before heading to the fourth inning getting three straight outs before the final two runs came in the bottom half of the fourth to seal the victory over Duncan.

The Lady Demons then traveled to Southmoore High School and was able to get four hits but none produced runs and the Sabercats got the 8-0 victory.

Childers and Hannah Harper got singles in the top half of the first with three outs occurring before the Lady Demons could get on the scoreboard heading to the bottom of the first.

A lead off double and a stolen base got Southmoore off to a 1-0 lead when a groundout brought home the runner to take the 1-0 lead after one inning of play.

Putting up four runs in the bottom of the second and three runs in the bottom half of the third, the Lady Demons got two singles in the top half of the fourth from Miller and Harper but a double play ended the threat and Duncan went to 5-8 on the season with the 8-0 loss.

Duncan will now head back into district action hosting Ardmore at 5:30 p.m. this evening at home before traveling to MacArthur this week to finish up before Labor Day.
