One game at a time


The combined nature of heavy and hopeful Perham hearts was bolstered by sincere empathy from the West Central Area team and fans during and after the game Tuesday evening.

Little sympathy was shown to the hosts on the floor, as the Yellowjackets improved to 12-0 after a 64-13 victory.

Even missing Zach Gabbard, the Perham defense picked up right where it left off, holding the third team this season to single digits at the half.
