B2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, September 22, 2011 Sports 8th Demons shut Five former Stillwater High Pioneers will be inducted into the Stillwater Pioneer Athlete Memorial during ceremonies at 10 a.m. Saturday in SHS's Student Activities Center. The induction ceremony caps off a busy week of activities surrounding SHS's annual Homecom- ing Football Game Friday night at Pioneer Stadium. The 2011 inductees are Ernest Bradley (Class of 1929), Jack Griffith (Class of 1944), Bruce Irwin (Class of 1959), Don Scott (Class of 1961) and C. D. Mihura, who is being hon- ored with a distinguished service award. Presenters will talk briefly about each inductee, while the families of the inductees will receive plaques from the S.P.A.M. committee. A reception will be held afterward. I was honored to know three of the inductees - Bradley, Griffith and Mihura - and each is deserving of this recogni- tion, as are the other two honorees. Jim Harris, a former SHS football coach, who guided the Pioneers to the school's only football state championship in 1967, was a driving force in organiz- ing this award for deserv- ing, departed Pioneers. The S.P.A.M. commit- tee became committed to providing a scholarship on behalf of the organization to a graduating SHS senior, naming the scholarship in honor of Coach Harris.

P-T used three second quarter scores to put the game away and used solid defense throughout to preserve the shutout. The Demons first score came with 1:56 left in the first quarter on a 15-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Gould from Dillon Longbrake. Nickolas Huckabay raced in for the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead. Fumble recoveries set up the first two second period scores. After Gould recovered a Redskin fumble on the McLoud 25-yard line, it took only three plays to score. The short drive was.capped by a three-yard run by Shawn Crosby. The extra points try failed leaving P-T with a 14-0 lead with 6:06 left in the second quarter. Daniel Wall recovered a McLoud fumble on the first play of the ensuing drive at the McLoud 20-yard line. The one play drive resulted in another touchdown pass from Longbrake to Gould at the 5:18 mark for a 20-0 advantage. The final score came on the last play of the first half on a six-yard TD pass to Bradyn Littau from Longbrake. Brady Davis added the two-point conversion for what proved to be the 28-0 final score. les Two second half scores enabled the McLoud Redskins freshmen to gain a 21-8 win over the P-T freshmen here last Thursday. McLoud scored on the game's opening drive on a nine- yard touchdown pass. The extra point kick gave the visi- tors a 7-0 lead with 5:05 left in the first quarter. P-T used two big plays in its first drive for the only score. It started with a 42-yard run by Jacob Peyton to the McLoud 16-yard line. The scoring play was a 16-yard strike to Peyton from quarterback Zac Bledsoe. Peyton had fell to his knees but quickly got up while the ball was in flight to make the catch at the goal line. Bledsoe hit Thunder Sharp in the back corner of the endzone for the two-point conversion at the Demons held an 8-7 lead that held up until halflime. McLoud took the lead for good on the final play of the third quarter on a one-yard run. The two-point conversion failed for a 13-8 lead. The Redskins' final score came with just over two minutes left in the game with another one-yard run but this time the extra points try was good for the 21-8 final score. prlP S!TT!HG "Let me take care of your pets or small farm while you are away~" LISA SASSER (405) 747-7584 Present This Coupon For , ,, *J q;'tzza! ) $2.00 OFF , , ANY LARGE PIZZA One coupon per customer per visit.
