Email

PLYMOUTH -- Much like Perham's Section 8AAA final victory, the #2-5AAA Providence Academy Lions (9-2) escaped a defensive battle, defeating the #5 Rockford Rockets (5-6) by a score of 15-14 to capture the Section 5AAA championship.

The victory propels the Lions to the quarterfinal round of the state tournament, where they will face the Yellowjackets (8-3) Saturday, Nov. 12, at 5 p.m. at Husky Stadium on the campus of St. Cloud State University.
