The Perkins Journal Thursday, October 6, 1977.5 To Tonkawa Friday Demons surprise Davenport 28-12 The Perkins-Tryon Demons moved to r2-0 in District Play and 3-2 on the season last Friday night as they defeated the Davenport Bulldogs, 28-12. Terry Ventris set up the first score of the game for the Demons when he intercepted a pass on Davenport's 25 and returned it to the 10-yard line. Mark Anderson took the ball from the 10 for a Demon TD. The extr points were made good by a pass from Dwayne Dearer to Greg Baker and P-T moved out 8-0. Perkins answer to Terry Miller, Mark Anderson, is loose again for one of his scores in Friday night's game. "Ouch" says a Davenport player as he is crushed by a host of Demons Friday night. Davenport's offense was unable to mount a serious drive, and after a 79-yard dash by Demon Mark Anderson the first quarter ended 14-0. In the second quarter Dearer connected with Baker on a 22 yard pass to move the Demons to the Davenport 31. Deaver, after avoiding the grip of several Bulldogs, scrambled the final 31 yards for a P-T touchdown. Anderson carried the pigskin in for the two point conversion, and the Demons rose to a 22-0 lead. The third quarter went scoreless for both teams. But Davenport came alive in the fourth when Chris Smith dove in from 1-yard out, after Davenport blocked a punt and recovered on the 1. The two point conversion failed and the Bulldogs trailed 22-6. The Demons capped off a 32 yard drive, started by a pass intercepted by Pecos Bridenstine, when Billy Womack dug through from 3-yards out to end the Demon scoring for the evening of 28 points. Davenport ended a 55 yard drive on the Demon 20.yard line. Smith connected with Jerry Rich to add 6 points to the board for the Bulldogs but it wasn't enough to top the Demons 28-12 victory. "It was a great feeling to see the kids win over Davenport Friday night," smiled Coach McIlvain. "Especially when we came so close a year ago, when we lost in overtime. It was also great to win a homecoming game. This is always a good feeling because some of the alumni come to homecom- ing. "Our team went out fired up from the start of the game to the finish. We made a few miscues at times, but overall I believe they played their hearts out. "Kelvin Smith had a good night kicking except for one blocked punt that gave them a TD. The rest were good This page made possible by the Cimarron Valley Co-op, Inc. 547.2700 247 S. Main kicks that put Davenport in poor field position. Roger Norfie and Terry Ventris had a trememdous night at corner back. They never got wide on either of them. Pecos Bridenstine had a good night on pass defense. He intercepted one to set up a TD and almost had two others. "Mark Anderson, Guy Rose, and Scott Higgins also had a good night at linebacking. Davenport made a lot of three and four yard gains, and this makes our linebackers have to make a lot of tackles. Our linemen, Todd Smalley, David Am- rine, Steve Magee and Kelvin Smith also did a creditable job. They put a little pressure on the backs and QB at time to make them do something different. "We are proud of the kids for this game," remarked 20 year coach Ditz McIlvain. "It will mean a lot to us down the line. "We go to Tonkawa Friday night. Hope we get a lot there. That's my HOME TOWN, and I want to see our kids beat them." by Keith Disney -0" DEMONS TAKE BITE OUT OF BULLDOGS The P-T Jr. High football team defeated the Meeker Bulldogs 12-6 in a good defensive game on Sept. 27. The Demons won the toss and elected to receive. On the first play from scrimm- age the Demon offense got a few yards but fumbled the ball over to Meeker. Good defensive play held Meeker after a fairly long drive. When the Demons got the ball back, Steve Cole made a 20 yard run as the quarter ended. During the second quar- ter, Meeker took the ball over and marched eighty yards for a TD. The extra point failed and Meeker lead 6-0. At the beginning of the 3rd quarter, P.T kicked off to the Bulldogs. A Meeker drive was ended when Wade Fields recovered a fumble and the Demons took over first and ten. The Demons had a good drive going, but it faltered when fullback George Mur- ray got the ball taken away from him. Doll Rags, Inc.
