Scott Briggs led the Demon scoring parade with 13 points. Cory McDaniel followed him closely with 11 points, while Scott Irwin added 8 for the Demons. Here are the comments of Coach Don Bendure. "We only shot 31% from the field and that will get you beat almost every night. That and a lack of practice really hurt us. I told the kids that we are just try- ing to survive until Christmas break. Then, we can go back to fundamentals and hopefully, we can teach everyone the offense. We have Drumright, Thursday night. The JV boys will start at 5:30 in the high school gym.

The Demonettes popped 14 of their 16 freethrows for an improved percentage of 88. Coyle managed 53%, hitting 10 out of 19 of their freeshots. The low-scoring of the Blue- jacket forwards had a lot to do with the Demon defense. The guards took advantage of Coyle's poor ball-handling abilities and pressured constantly to cause turn-overs. The fly-switch was very effective in the first half. The highscorers for the Demonette team were Smith with a big 16, Caldwell close behind with 12, Rozean put in 8, and Allen finished with 6. -O- IT WAS A JUNGLE OUT THERE!

Briggs added 1. They were soundly defeated by the Tigers, 53-32. The Demons were totally dominated in the 1st and 3rd quarters. Perhaps it just took us a little while to get warmed up, because the 2nd and 4th quarters were very close. In the 4th quarter, we scored l0 points and held Wellston to 9. The Tigers appeared .more adept at free throws than the Demons. They hit 70% of their free throws, while we had an average of 50%. Every Demon player saw play- ing time and scored in the game. Corby Doyle. Wes Hodges, and l,loyd Evans had 7. 7. and 6 points, respectively. Although the JV Demons did face a loss to Wellston, they work- ed well as a team. They hope to rook better in future games. 9th GRADE GIRLS HANDED LOSS By I~ri Redus December t0. the freshmen girls took a loss from the Yale Bulldogs. The upsetting score was 41-20. Tonya Gill, Andi Bayhylle and April Shipley were the starting forwards while Tina Rush. Debrina Gaches and Sandi Vorhees started as guards. Throughout the game, the guards had trouble bringing up the ball, and the forwards only scored seven field goals. Coach Frazier commented. "We learned a lot from the game, but we were outmatched. We ran plays correctly but not continual- ly. and we still need a lot of work on our fundamentals." High scorer for Yale was Thomas with 31 points. Andi Bayhylle led the charge for the Demonettes with 9 points. Following her lead was April Shipley capturing 6. Donelle Briggs bringing in 4, Tonya Gill caging 2 and Angel Ventris had 1. s Fall to Wellston 74-51 very poor shooting night, so did the Tigers.

The Bulldogs lost the game to the Demons with a final tally of 25-16. The Demon team played ex- cellent defense, doing a good job of rebounding and scoring off of steals. Perkins was a stride ahead of Yale the entire game. The Yale defense held the Demons for over a period, letting them add only a single basket to their score. Moore drove for two to break the team out of their slump and for the rest of the fourth the Demons were in control. The high scorer was Moore with 7. Taylor and Warren follow- ed with 5 apiece. Sylvester put in 4, and Wolfe' and Stanton had 2 apiece. Good job. guys. -0" 9th GRADE BOYS DEVASTATE BULLDOGS On Monday. December 10. the freshman boys easily whipped the Yale Bulldogs witb a final score of 42-26. Alton Carter, Brent Frazier. Matt Sharp, Lloyd Gwin. and Bryan Frazier started out for the Demons. The Demons captured the opening tip off which led them to score free shot after free shot. The Demons continued with their excellent team work leaving the first period score 9-6. The Demons never trailed, although they did appear to slack off for awhile, at which time Yale came on strong. However. the Demons went in at halftime leading 23-12. Bryan Frazier was the first to score in the third quarter. Matt Sharp precisely intercepted the ball twice, scoring and getting a jump ball. The Demons made several ,careless turnovers, though, and Yale dominated the third period. Alton Carter came on strong with several assists and some fancy dribbling. Again. the freshman team pulled in a win at 42-26. Coach Scalissi had the follow- ing comments to make: '~The freshman team's victory over Yale. Monday night, was a total team effort. The 9th graders have two more games before Christ- mas: Thursday against Drum- right, and Monday against Guthrie. With continued hard work and improvement, the Demons hope to do well against these next two opponents.'"
