Quarterback Cory Buerck scored the other touchdown. He finished with six yards rushing on the night and completed seven of 19 passes for 72 yards. He was intercepted once.

Kirk Luckey hauled in three passes for 36 yards to lead the Perryville receivers. Phillip Buerck made one catch for 18 yards, Greg Wibbenmeyer -- who kicked both extra points after the conversions -- made one catch for 14 yards.
