The Demons take on the Leop- ards at 7:30 p.m. at Leopard Stadit]m. The game will be broad- cast on KGFY 105.5 FM with the pregame show at 7 p.m. Both teams enter the game after lopsided losses in their respective district By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor KINGFISHER - Per- kins-Tryon knew to be able to contend with King- fisher, it would have to keep mistakes to a minimum and take advantage of all scoring opportunities. The Demons didn't fair well on either. The defending state champions Yellowjack- ets coasted to a 37-0 win over P-T at Kingfisher last Friday in a District 3A-1 clash that could have improved the Demons' spot in the district standings with a win. P-T now can't finish any better than third place with the playoffs looming in the future. P-T drops to 5-3 overall and 3-2 in the district race. The Demons will take a break from the district race this week and will travel to Lindsay for a clash with the Leopards. The kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Kingfisher will be at Heritage Hall also on Friday. That game with the Chargers will determine the district championship. "The best team won the game," said P-T head coach Bruce Williams afterward. "They do what good teams do in making fewer mis- takes while forcing turn- overs." P-T's opening pos- session seemed to set the tone for the offense. The Demons received their best field position of the night after Jacob Peyton returned Stillwater High's Pio- neers have to be wondering which Enid Plainsmen foot- ball team will appear at Pio- neer Stadium Friday night for a critical District 6AII-2 game for each squad.
