The Perham softball team heads into conference play losers of three straight after a 9-6 defeat at home to Dilworth-Glyndon Felton.

The Yellowjackets have been in each of their three contests but have yet to put together a complete game for victory.

The Rebels scored in five of seven innings while holding the Yellowjackets off the scoreboard until the fifth.

Down 6-0, Perham rallied for three runs in the fifth, highlighted by an Etta Scheidecker triple that scored Steph Miller and Natalie Wierbos. Scheidecker scored on a wild pitch.

The Rebel pitching duo of Makenzie Dukleth, who got the victory, and Emily Pender, who notched the save, held Perham's potent top three in the order to 1-8 from the plate, the only hit being Scheidecker's triple. Miller and Wierbos were a combined 0-5. Miller reached once on a hit by pitch. Wierbos walked.

Ashley Silbernagel took the loss pitching a complete game going seven innings. She gave up six hits, walked seven and struck out one.

Brita Sundberg, Abby Kalina and Lauren Guck got the other three hits for the Yellowjackets.

Both teams committed two errors in the field.
