PERHAM — Four pins in the first four matches scored enough points to put the No. 9AA Yellowjackets in command of a rematch with Section 8AA rival Detroit Lakes en route to a 50-23 drubbing of the Lakers Friday night.

Detroit Lakes gave up 18 points forfeiting at 145, 182 and 195 to compound the Laker woes.

Dylan Fudge (106), Ben Nelson (113), Chase Curtis (120) and Sam Pirrotta (126) got Perham out to a 24-0 lead with wins by fall.

Fudge pinned Fabian Greer at 30 seconds to get the match started with Jacket momentum.

Nelson pinned Payton Jackson in the first period at 1:18.

Curtis pinned Zach Baker at 3:16.

Pirrotta made it four for four pinning Marcus Jasken at 2:58 and the Yellowjackets had scored more points than the Lakers would all night.

Logan Twigg got the Lakers on the scoreboard pinning Tyler Fudge late in the third period at 5:15.

Dylan Perrine and Bryan Swiers spent six minutes locked up on the mat in a 2-0 for the Perham sophomore and a 27-6 Perham advantage.

Colin Neitzke received the first of DL’s three forfeits at 145.

The Lakers got two consecutive wins from No. 4AA Parker Jackson and Jarrett Nosal to close within 19 points down 33-14.

Jackson won by technical fall over Austen Schultz 21-4. Nosal defeated Patrick Glynn in the closest match of the night 6-5.

A tech fall at 3:49 by Cole Schmitz at 170 over Ryane Jacobson and two DL forfeits to No. 10AA Williams Parks and Jesse Klatt put the match away for the Yellowjackets up big 50-14.

Kirby Siewert defeated Perham’s Trent Jahnke 4-2 at 220 and Perham’s Jesse Bucholz nearly scored an upset of No. 4AA heavyweight James Huwe to close out the match.

Bucholz had Huwe on his back near the end of the first period and led 5-0 going into the second before Huwe turned the tables and pinned Bucholz for the 50-23 final.

Perham wrestled Saturday at the Cambridge-Isanti duals taking fifth place. That story will be posted Monday.
