PERKINS, Okla. —
The boys and girls Perkins-Tryon teams both took the game into overtime against Perry, and came away victorious by a point.
It was a low-scoring and slow starting game for the Lady Demons, who finished it 21-20. P-T put up 5 points in the first half and the Lady Maroons only sank one basket.
“Perry was a lot bigger than us so we were really selective on our shots in the first half,” P-T coach Jerry Burnett said.
Shauna Edwards led Perry with 8 points, and Jeri Adkism scored 11 for the Lady Demons. Adkism hit a bucket at the final buzzer of overtime, was fouled, and scored the game-winning point with no time left on the clock.
The boys played a faster game, leading Perry by 10 points going into the second. Perry came back to tie it up in the fourth quarter and sent the game to a fifth quarter.
Adams put 24 points on the scoreboard for the Maroons. Hayden McBride was the leading scorer for P-T with 20 points.
The Demons will travel to Stroud and Perry will take on Blackwell at 6:30 Friday.
