Wresting: Perham defeats Detroit Lakes 35-27


DETROIT LAKES -- A wrestling match with potential intrigue was decided by a forfeit at 220 pounds by the home Lakers giving Perham a 35-27 victory in Section 8AA wrestling Friday night.

Perham led 29-21 with two matches remaining, but No. 3-2A Nylander was uncontested putting the match out of reach for Laker heavyweight James Huwe.

Huwe pinned Jesse Bucholz at 3:04 to end the match with six meaningless points.
