Email News Alerts

PERHAM--Detroit Lakes and the #5-2A Perham Yellowjackets nearly played to a stalemate in a defensive battle Saturday evening. Perham survived a last second Laker shot holding on for a 36-34 victory.


Both teams combined for only 25 points in the second half.

"The score of the game doesn't indicate anything on how the game was played," Perham Head Coach Dave Cresap said. "Too many fans want all the scoring when the scoring couldn't be had due to the good defense played."
