Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton running back Bennett Mercil was a given for the 100 yard mark in rushing after his first two performances of the year. He nearly rushed for 200 in a 20-6 victory over Perham on Hall of Fame night Friday.


Mercil's 192 yards on 25 rushes averaged 7.7 yards per carry. He provided some consistency in a turbulent defensive battle.

"Both defenses did a great job of putting up some big stands and stopping the offenses," said Perham Head Coach Mike Jordahl.
