THIEF RIVER FALLS — Top-seeded Perham was upset in the semifinals of the Section 8AA team tournament by the Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus Road Crew 32-24 to end the Jackets’ team season one match shy of a shot at a third consecutive state trip.


Perham defeated the Road Crew 35-15 Jan. 23, but a different PLPRB team showed up Saturday.

PLPRB had four different wrestlers in the lineup and reversed losses in three matches from the January meeting.
