Perkins-Tryon had nine running plays of more than 10 yards during the game. Three of those went for touchdowns.

The Demons (3-2 overall, 1-1 district) finished the game with 361 yards rushing on 43 attempts. Bethany (2-3, 0-2) was held to just 89 yards.

Perkins defensive back Matt Waitt returned a fumble 50 yards for a touchdown in the dwindling seconds of the first quarter. Waitt also intercepted a pass that stopped a Bethany drive. He also picked up a big first down on offense, catching a 23-yard pass.

“Matt’s one of those younger players that we’ve had, he’s a starter for two years now,” Wertman said. “He’s just going to get better. We don’t have very many seniors, but the seniors we’ve got are showing great leadership right now against a good team like Bethany.”

Tyler Taff had touchdown runs of 62 and 35 yards for the Demons.

Bethany running back Dorien Jackson put Bethany on the board with 2:44 left in the first half on a 45-yard run. Jackson finished with 92 yards and two touchdowns.
