Titans too much for Demons, win 31-10
DUNCAN The Duncan Demons did what they wanted to do, come out and hit Carl Albert square in the mouth early, but in the end, the Titans were just too much.
Though Duncan scored on its second play from scrimmage, Carl Albert would strike back and wear down the Demons, 31-10, on Friday night in Halliburton Stadium.
Duncan falls to 1-2, while Carl Albert improves to the same record as both teams now turn their attention to the tough district slate.
"I don't know if we ran out of gas, but I just know that they made the plays down the stretch and we made some errors," Duncan head coach Jim Holloway said. "But I'll tell you what, our team competed hard all night long, kept fighting all night long. We will grow up a lot from this ballgame tonight. The test of the first three non-district games will make us a better football team."
The Demons jumped out early, with Tanner Norton taking that second play 73 yards for a touchdown. In the newly minted wishbone attack, Norton was able to find some room outside then cut back through the hole and raced to score Duncan's only touchdown.
From there, the Duncan defense also showed some muster, stopping Carl Albert drives cold, but once the second quarter got started things went downhill mainly because of Carl Albert quarterback Steven Thompson.
"We couldn't have gotten off to a better start there, making them punt on their first series," Holloway said. "Then we just never kinda regained anything. We had the momentum and then we let it slip away a little bit. It was a ballgame the whole half, and then we closed the game and they got a score back."
