PERHAM -- Freshman Maria Rutten came off the bench to lead the Yellowjackets in scoring with 15 points, while pulling down a team-high eight rebounds as the Yellowjackets defeated Menahga 58-52 for their first victory of the season.


Perham was able to minimize turnovers giving the ball up only nine times in the game, improving in an area that had plagued them through a 14-game losing streak to start the season.
