  • Fourth-ranked Seminole had its toughest test of the season Friday night, outlasting unranked Perkins-Tryon 14-7 in a District 3A-2 opener.
    The game wasn't decided until Papi White of Seminole intercepted a pass in the end zone — on a fourth-and-goal play from the 11-yard line — with 1:11 remaining.
    Seminole went to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in 3A-2.
    "It went into the win column and that's about all you can say," Seminole head coach Mike Snyder said. "We overcame a little adversity and that was good for us. They outplayed us in spots and they were a physically tough bunch."
    Seminole scored on its first offensive possession of the game, concluding a 65-yard drive with Trenton Newson's 24-yard off-tackle scoring run. White converted the first of his two extra-point kicks to give Seminole a 7-0 lead.
    Perkins-Tryon deadlocked the game at 7 shortly thereafter on a 4-yard touchdown run by Jacob Peyton.
    That's the way the game stayed until Doc Harvey's 2-yard scoring run in the third quarter.
    Seminole rushed for 287 yards while Perkins-Tryon generated 234 yards on the ground.
    White was Seminole's top rusher, accumulating 97 yards on 18 carries. Newson rushed for 83 yards on 14 attempts while Harvey finished with 66 yards on 14 rushes.
    Perkins-Tryon missed a third-quarter field goal and Seminole had one touchdown called back.
    Perkins-Tryon committed four turnovers — three fumbles and the deciding interception — while Seminole didn't have a turnover.
    Seminole will continue district action next Friday by entertaining Sequoyah-Claremore in a 7:30 p.m. homecoming battle.
