The Demons held a 27-17 lead entering the final eight minutes.
Prague, ranked 13th in 3A, was led in scoring by Corbin Coker with six points. Landrea Hixson added five points.
“We showed some character after being down that much early,” Prague coach Jay Depanion said.
Prague was 6-of-10 from the charity stripe and Perkins-Tryon was 6-of-9.
In the nightcap, Prague’s boys dropped a 39-37 decision to Perkins-Tryon.
Grayson Hamm of Prague missed a 2-point field-goal attempt at the final buzzer.
