PHS Volleyball: D-G-F sneaks past Perham
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

Perham returned to Prairie Wind Gymnasium Tuesday for what could have been the biggest match in the HOL this fall.

The Jackets and No. 15-AA D-G-F were evenly matched, but the Rebels came out on top, barely, 3-1 (21-25, 25-18, 26-24, 27-25).

"A point here or there, a controversial official call, was the difference in the last two games," Christenson said. "D-G-F did a great job up front keeping our hitters contained. Our coverage was good as well, which provided for some long, exciting rallies. It was a great match for the fans to watch."

Perham let a big lead get away in the fourth set after leading 22-15. D-G-F came back with a run of six-straight points to help cut the lead to 23-21. A missed serve by Perham allowed D-G-F another opportunity to get back into the game.

The game was tied at 24-24, and 25-25, before D-G-F ended Perham's evening 27-25.

"I'm proud of the way our kids kept their energy up tonight," Christenson said. "They were not intimidated by D-G-F's No. 15 Coaches' Poll ranking. Our youngsters grew up tonight...a lot. It's going to be a great, rest of the season. "

Perham beat the Rebels last year, 3-1, ending a three-match losing streak to D-G-F.

On the road

Perham's next two matches will be on the road against HOL opponents they've had a lot of success against, starting tonight (Oct. 1) at Pelican Rapids.

Perham (5-7, 3-1 HOL) is 9-0 against the Vikings since 2000, outscoring them 27 sets to three.

On Oct. 6, the Lady Jackets will head to Breckenridge. Perham is also 9-0 over the Cowgirls since 2000, not losing a single set, beating them by a combined score of 27-0 over that span.
