PHS Wrestling: Jackets cruise to big win over OTC

The Yellowjacket wrestling team made a trip to Underwood Thursday night and came home with a 51-25 victory over Otter Tail Central.

"We looked OK," head coach Robb Moser said. "OTC has a very nice looking squad. Again, our young guys need to keep improving and not give up the bonus points."

Perham had five wins by fall and one by tech fall, but they gave up three pins as well. Perham held a 34-25 lead with three matches to go, but Chris Scheidecker and Jesse Hein each picked up pins at 189 and heavyweight, respectively, with a tech fall by Ben Brill in between.

"I am really liking how our upper three weights are looking," Moser said. "They've been very aggressive and racking up lots of bonus points."

Holiday break

Perham will have an 18-day break from competition over the holiday break before they return to action at their own Barrel O' Fun Invitational on Jan. 9.
