The Perham girls basketball team (4-7) has had their share of close games this season. They have a record of 3-4 in seven games decided by five points or less after a 66-63 victory on the road in Crookston (5-6) Monday evening.


"It's a nice feeling to be on the other side of a close game as we haven't been able to find ways to win these types of games this season," Head Coach John Gullingsrud.

The Yellowjackets made big plays on both ends of the court late in the game.
