It culminated with a 47-40 win over the Byng Lady Pirates Saturday night at' Okmulgee. P-T (22:4) will face a familiar foe in the Class 4A Area III champion- ship Friday night at Sand Springs High School. The Lady Demons will play the Vinita Lady Hornets for the area title and berth in the state tournament. Tip time is set for 6:30 p.m. A loss by either team will move them to the area consolation championship game at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, also at Sand Springs. The Lady Demons used a key third quarter surge that led to the win over Byng, which was the second time this season the two teams faced each other. The first encounter was in the third place game of the CD Warehouse Classic in Bethel in early January. P-T trailed 18-17 at halftime. Jeri Adkism hit her fourth three-point goal to put the Lady Demons up 20-18. Byng followed with an inside bucket to force a 20-20 tie. Then came the game-changing run for P-T. Adkism drained her fifth trey to spark a 12-2 run against the Lady Pirates' zone defense. Three of the rally's buckets came while penetrating the zone by Shelby Stansberry, Bailey Wensler, and Hanna Runner. Stansberry added a bucket from beyond the three-point arc as part of the surge that gave P-T a 32-22 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

The Demons lost in the first round of regional action last Thursday night to the host Purple Pirates at Bristow, 42-32. Against Seminole, the even bigger stage Friday lead flip-flopped during afternoon at Okmulgee High School. SHS surged in the second half to gain a 52- 43 win over the Demons in the Class 4A regional tournament consolation semifinals. The loss elimi- nated P-T, who finished the much of the first quarter until a five-point run sup- plied by Cody Waitt gave the Demons a 17-13 lead with just under a minute remaining.
