One didn't have any bearing on the outcome but the other one did. P-T ended the week with a 70-59 win over the Cleveland Lady Tigers last Saturday night in a Tulsa 7 Conference clash. It began last Friday as the Lady Demons coasted to an uncontested 90-27 triumph over the Harding Fine Arts Academy Firehawks in the P-T Gymnasium. The Lady Demons made it look pretty easy against Cleveland early by jumping out to an 8-2 lead in the first" four minutes of the game. CHS, however, countered with seven straight points for a short-lived 9-8 lead with three minutes left in the period. Both teams tallied six points each in the closing minutes to enable the Lady Tigers hold a 15-14 advan- tage. Again P-T used a quick start in the second quar- ter but Cleveland didn't respond like it did earlier. Free throws from Coley Larson and two inside buckets from Ericka Ste- venson contributed to the 9-2 run that created a 23-17 advantage with 4:41 left in the first half. Both teams essentially traded buckets for the remainder of the frame. However, P-T would grad- ually add to its lead espe- cially with back-to-back field goals from Larson and Bailey Wamsley and a free throw from Brianna Hobbs for the Lady Demons' first double-digit lead of 36-26 with just under a minute left. Wamsley drained a three-pointer from the top of the key in the final seconds that gave P-T an 11-point advantage at the intermission of 39-28. As it would turn out, P-T's second quarter dominance proved to be the difference of the game. The Lady Demons extended the lead through- out a majority of the third quarter. Scoring chunks from Hobbs, Stevenson, and Raegan O'Donnell allowed P-T to reach the 20-point cushion plateau with a 53-33 advantage with 3:26 left. But the Lady Tigers gave the home crowd a reason to hope for a rally in the fourth quarter. Cleveland used an 18-4 run in the first four minutes of the fourth frame to close to 60-56 with just under three minutes left. The Lady Demons then used a somewhat unfamiliar ally in the final three minutes See LIGHT Page B3 Perkins-Tryon's Brianna Hobbs splits a pair of Harding Fine Arts defenders enroute to the hoop during first half action of last Friday's game in the P-T Gymnasium.
