Journal photo by Kyle Lomenick By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor BETHEL - Long story short, the Perkins-Tryon Demons held on to claim a 56-54 win over the New- castle Racers for the third place trophy Saturday night in the CD Warehouse Clas- sic in Bethel. But when you follow the final moments step by step, the ending was quite bizarre. Three turnovers in the final five seconds plus a desperation halfcourt shot by the Racers enabled the Demons to hold on for the win. P-T also had to overcome a quick seven- point Newcastle run with a minute to play that figured into the equation. P-T appeared to be well on its way to winning the game with three minutes remaining. Cody Waitt and Travis Battles hit buckets to give the Demons a 55- 45 lead with 3:05 left. Then came the string of unique events. Trailing 55-47, Newcas- tle's B.J. Ice was fouled by Caleb White on a layup in which the bucket was good. White was then assessed a technical foul.
