Todd Higgins was the benefactor of the Dale press, because when P-T beat the defense, he was usually wide open under the bucket. He dropped in eight points in the first period. Steve McDaniel banked in a jumper near the end of the period to give P-T a 22-12 lead. In the second period, with some questionable officiating now becoming obvious, the Demons saw Dale reel off the first seven points of the period. The officials seemed to have the theory, "no blood, no foul," and the two teams could have easily been mistaken for playing another sport had they worn pads and helmets. With the score 22-16, a Dale player was called for clipping and McKosato was called for a technical. Dale converted both the free throws and the basket to make the score 22-19. That's when the Dem- ons, who had not been pressed effectively all year, went out of "sync. The Pirates forced four straight turnovers and before the period was over they had outscored P-T 28-9 and led at the half, 31-40. The third period was more of the same for this side of the Demons. But right before the period ended the Demons trans- formed back into the hustling, stealing, de- fense-playin'-shooters that they started out the game being. After falling behind by 18 points in the third period, 35-53, the Demons battled back to close the gap to 43-55 at the end of the quarter. P-T finally adjusted to the street-ball rules the officials were using and started to use them in their advantage. The Demons unleashed a press of their own and pulled to within six 57-63 on a Scott Briggs' free throw. The Demons comeback gave visions of last year's cardiac kids, who made a habit of coming from behind to win. But this year's team lacks the experience to pull these games out of the bag.

Anna Marie Evans Butler Lisa Sharp Cypert Jana Smith n~y McClellan Mike Spillars McKosato Monica Taylor Bodie Turner When McKosato hit a three-point play at the 3:09 mark, the Demons had cut the Pirate lead to 64-62. P-T even took the lead for a brief moment when Higgins was leR unattend- ed under the basket and McKosato hit him with a fullcourt length pass and he layed it in to give P-T a 68-67 lead. But Dale came right back to take the lead as a Pirate took the ensuing inbounds rass and raced down court and hit a baseline jumper. ARer McDaniel, who was instru- mental in the Demon comeback bid, missed a crucial free throw, the Demons were forced to foul Dale. With the score 70-74, Rex Branstetter made a steal but couldn't connect with the shot with only :10 left. Briggs, aRer a missed Pirate free throw, hit an uncontested lay-up at the buzzer for the final points.

Before Christmas the 7th and 8th grade science classes sent letters and Christmas cards to the men and women in the Air Force, Army, Navy, and ' the Marines overseas. The science teacher, Mrs. Harris, got the address out of the Stillwater News- Press. Each person who want- ed to wrote a letter to somebody. They enclosed their own address so the person could write back. Cheri Johnson's letter has already been answered from a soldier in Grenada. He was formerly from Tulsa. Mrs. Harris furnished the Christmas cards and the envelopes. The Spider Newspaper paid for the postage. We hope this brighten- ed the Holidays for the many people overseas. The Demonettes played the Dale Lady Pirates a close game until the last quarter when the Demon- ettes were forced to foul and ended up losing big, 25-43, dropping their record again making it 2-8. This defeat was the Demonettes second at the hand of the Lady Pirates for this season. Although they weren't beaten as badly the second time and played a much better ballgame, it still goes in the loss column. "The guards domina- ted, playing an outstand- ing ballgame and the forwards showed signs of improvement. The players coming off the bench looked impressive," com- mented Coach Frazier. The first half went pretty well for the Demonettes; they manag- ed to keep it very close. The first half score was only 9-14, Dale with the lead. Julie Payne had 6 of the 9 points to keep the Demonettes in. The second half started out pretty well as Julie Payne continued to keep the Demonettes in, and Laura Littlefield checked in and scored impressively for the Demonettes. The final quarter was where the Demonettes lost it. The game was close but the Demonettes were still trailing and were forced to foul in a final attempt to beat the Lady Pirates and were beaten on free throws, the final 25-43.
