For the Per-. kins-Tryon Demons in their District 3A-1 clash with Mount St. Mary, a pair of them by sophomore Quincy Mouton paved the way in the 34-3 win over the Rock- ets last Friday night. Next up for the Demons will be 'a much-deserved return to McIlvain Field tonight to host the King— fisher Yellowjackets in a game that could decide the second place district finish and a first round playoff ’ home game. The kickoff is set for 7 pm. and will be broadcast on KGFY 105.5 FM with the pregame show at 6:30 pm. This was a much—im- proved Mount St. Mary team the Demons faced.

The eighth-seeded Cyril Lady Pirates claimed a 2-1 upset win. Despite the loss, the Lady Warriors finished the season with a 34-4 record. This was also Ripley’s fourth straight appearance in the state tournament. “We knew going in it was going to be a low-scor— ing game,” said Ripley head coach Kaleb Hoffman after— ward. “We knew with our pitching and our defense that they were probably not going to get a whole lot. And we knew their pitcher threw it well because of a tournament we were at earlier in the year and she was just really good today; some days you just gotta tip your hat and say great job.” Ripley only had one legitimate scoring oppor- tunity and that was in the top of the seventh inning and trailing 2-0. Dakota Hall and Carolyn Overton reached on back-to—back singles. Hall would later advance to third base'on D RIPLEY, Page A2 cut-3...... We: F [L] R [l Sal 51H *1 drives going. Improved skill players also had the ability to break a big play for a score. But that changed in the third quarter. “But we got that mo-jo on our sidelines with the pick—six and recovering the fumble on the kickoff and getting the ball again was a big deal,” head coach Dawayne Hudson said after the game. “Quincy made a good break on the ball because he knew the play was coming and so he was kind of baiting it a little bit. I knew it was a house call the second it happened.” Mouton’s first big play came on the Rockets’ first offensive possession of the second half. P-T had just committed its fourth defensive penalty to give MSM a new set of downs on the P-T 31-yard line. On a third down and 10 play, quarterback Joseph Krug was rushed heavily and narrowly got his pass off. However, Mouton stepped in front of the intended receiver to intercept the ball and return it 69 yards for the much-needed score with 7:44 left in the third quarter. Dylan Davidson kicked the second on four extra points for a l4—3 lead. (teammawa District 3A-1 Standings Dist.
