FARGO -- Jordan Hein's second touchdown of the Section 8AAA championship, a 22-yard interception return, looked to be an early nail in the coffin of the Park Rapids Area Panthers Friday at Fargodome, as Perham took an early 19-0 lead.


Hein's counterpart, Tyler McCollum, had other ideas.

Perham took a 25-6 lead into halftime and the game appeared comfortably in Yellowjacket hands until McCollum came out of the locker room with a fired up Panthers team.
