The kickoff is set for 7 pm. Friday. The game will be broad- cast on KGFY 105.5 FM with the pregame show at 6:30 pm. The Demons will enter the game with a 2-1 record following last week’s 44-7 thrashing of McLoud. The Chief are 2—0 after their topsy-turvy 42-32 win at Cushing. This will also be Berryhill’s home-opener. This will be the ninth time the two teams have , played with Berryhill owning a 6-2 series record. P-T won the series opener by a 6-0 overtime win in 1986. After that, the Chiefs won five straight and with four of those games by shutouts. The Demons did win the 2008 game by a 21-12 verdict for Berryhill countered the following year with a narrow 14-12 win. Berryhill is coming off an 8-4 record from a year ago and bring back numerous starters from that squad. The offense is led by quarterback Jacob Bailey and includes run- ning back Josh Sharp and receiver Trey Walker. Look for the Chief to utilize mul- tiple offensive sets and to try to spread the ball around to their skill players. -The defense will use a 3—4 alignment to take advantage of the talents of linebacker Nate Inhofe. He is joined by fellow line- backer Dalton Burgess to curtail an opponents’ run- ning game. The Demons are on a two-game winning streak and improvements continue to be made with the District 3A-l season just a week away. Head coach Bruce Williams likes the chal- lenge that playing a team like Berryhill brings. “They will be a tough team but they are going to prepare us for district play and that’s what your schedule should do,” Wil- liams said. “If you schedule cupcakes early on and you get to tough district play it makes things tough on you. “We loaded our schedule up front knowing that it will prepare us for those guys Perkins-Tryon linebacker Landon Mages zeros in on McLoud quarterback Braxton Hall before tackling him for a safety during second quarter action of last Friday’s 44-7 win at Mcllvain Field. It was the first of two defensive scores by p pREGAME, Page 33 the Demons. P-T is closing out the non-district portion of the schedule this week at Berryhill. Journal photo by Kyle Lomenick Trifecta scoring routs McLoud By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor Perkins-Tryon used the trifecta effect in scoring enroute to a convincing 44—7 win over the McLoud Redskins here last Friday night. The win was the second straight for P-T to improve to 2-1. It was the first for McLoud to drop to the same record. Next up for the Demons will be the final non-district contest at Ber- ryhill Friday night. Kickoff is set for 7 pm. “The kids played really well,” said head coach Bruce Williams afterward. Cley Larson drops dow n a second inning bunt single during .340 last Tuesday’s home game with Cushing. The Lady Demons run-ruled the Lady Tigers 9-1 . Larson would eventually score on a passed ball. Journal photo by Rick Lomenick anch Ba “We played hard and exe~ cuted the game plan almost to perfection.” Quarterback Autry Westfall led the scoring charge by throwing three touchdown passes. On the receiving end of two of them were Donnie Beck for 7 and 26 yards. Bear Arnold also hauled in a scoring toss that tallied 38 yards. Backup quarterback Caden Williams tossed a 17—yard TD at the 5: 12 mark of the fourth quarter to Kirby Calder as part of the aerial attack. “Our game plan was not to run the ball at all,” Wil— liamssaid. “We knew going in they were going to make us throw it.” 'Williams added he and his coaching staff had watched film from last year’s game and felt they were going to be given the pass. Very little of last week’s practice time was devoted to the running game. The third year skip- per added work was done on pass blocking in addition to various formations. It paid off as Williams was pleased with Westfall’s performance. “He made some throws tonight that were the best thrombi his career," he added. Beck’s first TD catch was the first quarter’s lone score with 4:29 remaining. Joel Kolari kicked the first of his four extra points for a 7—0 lead. The second took place with 5:03 left in the third quarter. Amold’s ignited a 17-point second quarter surge at the 10:40 mark. The defense accounted for two scores. The first was a safety when line- backer Landon Mages tack- led McLoud quarterback Braxton Hall in the end > SCORING, Page B3 Guthrie, Cushing fall Victim to Lady Demons GUTHRIE — Per- kins-Tryon solidified it spot as among the best teams in Class 3A last week with a 12-0 hammering of the Guthrie Lady Jays in Guth- rie last Thursday. It was a light week for P-T as they played one other game last week and that was a 9-1 win over Cushing here last Tues- day. P—T entered the week ranked No. 2 in the state. Against Guthrie, P-T exploded for 11 runs in the top of the third inning that helped bring an early end of the game. The big blow was a bases—clearing double by Brooke Field to balloon the lead to 10—0. Bailey Wams- ley added a two-run single as part of the rally. After a scoreless first inning, the Lady Demons got on the board in the visitors’ half of the second frame with a home run to left field from Makayla Jones. Jones also added a RBI single during the third inning surge. Jones arm Sidnee Cowan each went 3-for—3 at the plate to lead the Lady Demons. Two of Cowan’s hits were doubles to help account for 2 RBIs. Field was the winning pitcher is tossing a one-hit shutout. She struck out four and walked one I the abbre- viated appearance. The Lady Demons cruised to a 9-1 six-inning wm. P-T notched runs in each inning that included a three-run sixth frame to . end the game by run-rule. Two sacrifice fly balls from Jones and Bailey Aldridge sandwiched a RBI single by Sidnee Cowan to account for the runs. Field scored the first run when she reached with a leadoff walk. She later scored on a bases loaded walk given to Cowan. In the second frame, Coley b SOFTBALL, Page B3 Lobby Hours: Monday-Thursday 8 am. to 4 pm. Friday 8 am. to 4:30 pm.
