#1-2A Yellowjackets hold on for 72-69 victory at 3A Fergus Falls

Email

If the top-ranked Perham Yellowjackets (7-0) have an Achilles' heel, it's free throw shooting and it almost cost them Thursday night, as they won for the 26th consecutive time. Perham defeated the Otters 72-69 in Fergus Falls.

Tied at 50 with less than 10 minutes remaining, Perham went on a 20-7 run to lead 70-57 with two minutes to play.

The 13-point advantage was the largest lead for either club in a game that was back and forth with far more offense than defense.
