The Demons squared off against host Perry and Sperry, P-T was to have hosted Blackwell but it was cancelled by the visi- tors. P-T head coach Lloyd Wertman was able to garner the scrimmage early last week. P-T's varsity turned in solid performances against both teams without know- ing much about what they would face.
