McLOUD, Okla. — The Perkins-Tryon Demons almost had a second half come back against McLoud but fell short, 27-21.

The Demons trailed 21-7 at halftime but an 83-yard touchdown in the third quarter put the Demons back in the game.

The second half began to turn around for P-T with the game tied at 21 late in the fourth but the Demons couldn’t secure a win.

With the game looking like it may head to overtime, Perkins-Tryon turned the ball over with about three minutes left in the game after McLoud had taken a 27-21 lead — with P-T blocking the point after try.

Next week the Demons host Verdigris for their homecoming game.


YALE — The Yale Bulldogs lit up the scoreboard with a 38-0 shutout against Wellston.

Seniors JR Wakely and Devion Saunders were an unstoppable pair for the offense. They teamed up for three touchdowns and two successful point after attempts.

Yale also scored early on a 29 yard run by Wakely and his pass to senior Konner Fowler in the fourth.

The Bulldogs will take on Mounds Friday at home.


COYLE — The Bluejackets ended the game in the third quarter by holding Woodland off the scoreboard.

Gary Hunter led Coyle with 184 yards rushing and Ryan Weathers threw for 186.

Getting in to the endzone was easy for the Bluejackets, but the point after attempts were a different story. Only two of the six 2-point conversions were successful.

“We went away from that and did some things different,” Coyle coach Shane Weathers said. “We’ve got to make sure we’re not missing points up on the scoreboard.”

Shane Weathers said the defense played well. They held Woodland to 3 yards rushing and gave up 68 yards in the air.

Coyle heads to Owasso Friday to face Rejoice Christian.


AGRA — The Bearcats couldn’t hold up against the No. 3 team in Class C, Sharon-Mutual.

Agra coach Enoch Jackson said his team needs to work on strength and conditioning.

“Their lines overpowered our lines,” Jackson said. “We got a little tired.”

Agra travels to South Coffeyville Friday.


ALVA — The momentum the Morrison Wildcats’ had in the first half against Alva didn’t continue after halftime.

The Wildcats went into halftime down by two points but gave up 42 unanswered points in the second half. Morrison coach Cory Bales said his team played well in the first half.

“Second half we weren’t able to sustain that fourth down drive,” Bales said. “We gave up big plays, and that hurt us quite a bit.”

Even with the loss Bales said he is happy with how his team played.

“I thought we made major improvement from last week to this week so I’m pleased,” Bales said.

Friday the Wildcats will play Oklahoma Bible away.


In other area games, Pawnee rode a strong defensive outing for a 7-0 victory over Hominy for the Black Bears’ first win of the season. Pawnee will travel to play Barnsdall next week.
