6-THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, September 6, 2001 9 21 -point fourth quarter lifts Jones in season-opener By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor JONES -- A 21 -point fourth quarter sparked the Jones Long- horns to a 29-0 season-opening win over the Perkins-Tryon De- mons last Friday night. P-T will open the home por- tion of the schedule Friday night against the Luther Lions. Kick- off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The game was knotted at 0-0 at halftime. However, the De- mons had a couple of scoring opportunities. Head coach Steven Grotheer said he felt if his team went into the intermis- sion with at least a 10-0 lead, the outcome might have been far different. P-T also had another opportunity go bust in the third quarter. Jones took over on downs and then drove for a score. "Emotionally, that took a lot out of us," Grotheer said. "It looked like we were tired but we were more emotionally tired af- ter that than we were physi- cally." Place kicker Bobby Holmes just missed tallying the Demons' first points of the season with just over three minutes left in the first quarter. His 44-yard field goal attempt had plenty of dis- tance but was slightly off-target to the right. , After forcing Jones to punt on their ensuing drive, the De- ?mons took the ball and moved 'lit to the Jones 30.

By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor Coming off a disappointing 29-0 loss last week, the Perkins- Tryon Demons are looking for history to begin repeating itself. It will begin Friday night, as the Demons will host the Luther Lions at 7:30 p.m. The visiting Lions will enter the contest with a 1-0 record af- ter last week's easy 28-7 win over the Wellston Tigers. But it was last year's game that spring- boarded P-T to an impressive string of wins. The Demons went down to the Lincoln county connnunity and left with a 27-0 win. In early looks at the Lions, Grotheer said they have good size on both sides of the line. However, they do not possess the same kind of speed, as did Jones. Offensively, the Lions will show familiar looks in the Wing- T and double-slot formations and relies on running the ball outside for success. That, how- ever, will play into the Demons' defensive strength. "We like people running sideways on our defense," head coach Steve Grotheer added. And on defense, the Lions will again line up in the famed "46" Defense made popular by the Chicago Bears ig 1980s.
