KINGFISHER - Kingfisher's Yellowjackets swept the Perkins-Tryon Junior High Demons at Kingfisher last Thursday.
P-T's seventh and eighth grade teams will entertain Jones tonight at McIlvain Field with action starting at 5 p.m. There will not be a freshman game.
Kingfisher 28, P-T 14 7th grade
Kingfisher used three long runs enroute to a 28-14 win over the seventh grade.
Kingfisher held an 8-0 lead after the first quarter on a 50-yard run and the two-point conversion. P-T tied the score in the second period on a two-yard run by Seth Thomas. Ty Hill added the two-point conversion for an 8- 8 score. Kingfisher followed with a 67-yard jaunt and with the two-point conversion held a 16-8 halftime lead.
The Yellowjackets added runs of 43 and four for scores while the Demons gained a 10-yard TD run by Jordan Brown to close out the scoring.
"I was very pleased with the effort from everyone," said seventh grade skipper Russell Longbrake. "Our offensive line of Lucius Ownbey, Tanner Prickett, Korbyn Carthen, Gaven Cowett, Hayden Hazelbaker, and Justin Prough probably had their best game of the year. They did an outstanding job of leading our backs."
P-T falls to 2-3 and will host Jones tonight at 5 p.m. at McIlvain Field.
Kingfisher 8, P-T 6 8th grade
P-T had very limited offensive touches during the first half as Kingfisher held on to an 8-6 win.
The Demons' lone score came by way of special teams as a punt snap sailed over the head of the Kingfisher punter and Josh Groom recovered the ball in the endzone for the score. The extra point attempt failed leaving P-T with a 6-0 lead.
Kingfisher held the ball on two long drives during the second quarter and managed a score on one of them. The extra point attempt was good, which proved to be the difference in the game. The Demons had only two offensive possessions in the first half.
The second half turned into a defensive struggle as neither team was able to get anything going offensively.
Kingfisher 34, P-T 6 9th grade
The Yellowjackets rolled to a big win over the Demons 34-6.
Devin O'Brien notched P-T's lone score on a 22-yard run. The extra points attempt failed.
"The ninth grade is getting better but we still have a ways to go," said freshman skipper Lloyd Wertman. "They keep coming out and working hard each day."
