Confident Yellowjackets steady in victory over Panthers 34-12


PERHAM - The No. 7-ranked Perham Yellowjackets overcame some early failures on offense to turn a tight game into a blowout 34-12 over Park Rapids in Perham's home opener.

The Panthers came into the game concentrating on containing Jordan Hein and Payton Jordahl and the Perham rushing attack.

"They run the ball very well and help and compliment each other," Panthers Head Coach Aaron Morris said in a pregame interview with Lakes 99.5's Mike Peterson.
