See BRIEFS Page B3 Sports &Fitness Millwood blocks P-T path to state tourney By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor CUSHING -Per- kins-Tryon's attempt for an 11 th state tournament appearance was dashed Monday as the Oklahoma City Millwood Lady Fal- cons held off the Lady Demons for a 46-36 win in the Class 3A area tourna- ment consolation finals at Cushing High School. P-T finishes the season with a 23-6 record. It was also the final game for seniors Bailee Hall, Karly Winn, Rylee Craycraft, and Bailey Wensler who were part of the recent success in the program. Millwood moves on to the state tour- nament that began today. As a team, Millwood sty- mied P-T with their speed and athleticism, Defen- sively, MHS made it diffi- cult for P-T to establish an inside game as well over 10 blocked shots were notched by the Lady Falcons. Tran- sition baskets and offensive patience also helped the Lady 'Falcons. Millwood raced to a 10-0 lead in the first five min- utes of the game. But P-T responded with eight unan- swered points from Cray- craft, Hall, Brianna Hobbs, and Ericka Stevenson to trim the deficit to 10-8 at the end of the frame. The momentum contin- ued with a 5-2 run to start the second quarter with free throws from Craycraft and Stevenson and a bucket from Hall to give P-T its only lead of the game at 13-12. Then the Lady Fal- cons took over. Millwood closed out the half with a 12-2 run with mostly transi- tion baskets to take a 24-15 lead at halftime. After a low scoring third quarter that kept Millwood in the lead, the Lady Fal- cons essentially put the game away with a 9-3 run in the first four minutes of the fourth quarter to forge a 38-24 lead. Hobbs hit a trey to begin the quarter and that pulled P-T to within five at 29-24. Millwood used free throw shooting in the final two minutes to hold off the Lady Demons for the win. Stevenson and Hobbs notched 8 points each to lead P-T in scoring. The Lady Demons reached the consolation finals with a 56-42 win over Heritage Hall last Saturday afternoon.
