Knowing a fast start would be needed to ground a talented Perkins-Tryon squad Friday night, the No. 3 Sulphur Bulldogs wasted no time in setting the tone.

A 20-point first quarter sent the Bulldogs on their way, as Sulphur earned a place in the Class 3A state quarterfinals next week with a 34-7 victory over the Demons at Calvin Agee Field.

Sulphur (10-1) will move on and host Idabel (8-3) next Friday night at Calvin Agee Field. Idabel defeated Casica Hall Friday night 33-0 in its opening round game. 

Trey Kiser made an immediate impact in the first quarter for the Bulldogs, scoring the opening touchdown of the game from six yards out to make it 7-0 after the Benedict Voss extra point.

Tavius McDonald made it 13-0 for Sulphur when he scored from three-yards out later in the frame, before Kiser finished off the quarter in style with a 62-yard touchdown run to put Sulphur up 20-0.

After a scoreless second quarter, McDonald gave the Bulldogs some breathing room in the third, when he caught a 20-yard pass from Cole Johnson to make it 27-0.

Perkins-Tyron got a consolation touchdown in the third quarter on a four-yard touchdown run.

Price Daube then caught a touchdown pass from Johnson, this one a 21-yard strike to finish off the game in the fourth quarter.

Johnson finished 4-of-10 passing for 75 yards and two touchdowns, while Kiser was the leading rusher with 27 carries for 247 yards and two touchdowns.

McDonald carried the ball 17 times for 112 yards on the night with one touchdown.

Daube was the leading receiver for the Bulldogs as he caught two passes for 39 yards with one touchdown.

The victory by the Bulldogs was their fourth straight at home in the opening round of the playoffs dating back to 2015.

The winner of Friday nights quarterfinal game will play either Kingfisher or Berryhill in the state semifinals Thanksgiving week at a site and time to be determined by the OSSAA following the end of the quarterfinal round.

The other quarterfinal games will be Heritage Hall against Stigler and Plainview against Lincoln Christian.
