   PERRY, Okla. --  The Newkirk Tigers baseball season ended Thursday at Perry in Class 3A District Baseball losing twice to the Maroons, 7-2 and 12-1.

 The losses ended the Tiger season at 13-12.

 "I'm disappointed for the kids," said Tiger head coach Ed Vaughn said.  "We couldn't throw strikes and then we hit a lot of balls hard that were right at them.  It was a perfect storm against us."

 "I thought Perry played well," Vaughn said.  "Their coach said it was the best they had played in two years."

 The Tigers were hindered when senior pitcher Jaycee Johnston was sidelined from the mound with a sore elbow.

 Newkirk Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the first when Ryan Lusk led off the game and scored on a fielder's choice off the bat of Jaycee Johnston.

 Perry then answered with two runs in the first and controlled Game 1 until the 6th when a Tiger uprising cut the lead to 4-2.  Hunter Lake walked and scored on a single by Coby Hutson.

 Hutson was then cut down at the plate after an error by the Perry shortshop off the bat of Connor Testa.

 Perry then answered with three runs and won 7-2.

 Trevor Johnson and Ryan Lusk were on the hill for the Tigers working a combined six innings.

 The Maroons scored early and often in Game 2, routing the Tigers 12-1.

 Perry led 6-0 before the Tigers scored their lone run by Trevor Johnson on a strange play.

 Johnson was on the bases when Hunter Lake checked his swing on a pitch, the umpire did not call a strike but the Maroons thought it was strike three ending the inning.  As the play unfolded, Johnson wound up in a run down and scored from third.

 Perry then put the game away with six runs in the 5th.
