The No. 9AA Yellowjackets placed fifth at the Cambridge-Isanti Bluejacket Duals in a tough field of four Class 3A schools and the best Division Two school from Wisconsin on Saturday.

The host No. 6AAA Bluejackets defeated Ellsworth, the No. 1-ranked team in Wisconsin Division Two, 43-12 in the championship.

Moorhead defeated Mora 54-12 for third place.

Perham defeated Class 3A Forest Lake 48-20 for fifth place and Andover defeated North Branch 48-26 for seventh place.

Perham split four matches losing a close 38-31 match to Mora to open the tournament. The Jackets followed that up with a 48-15 victory over North Branch.

The reward for that win was a match-up with Ellsworth, in which the Jackets hung with Wisconsin’s top-ranked squad in a 41-24 loss, setting up the fifth place win over Forest Lake.

No. 10AA 182-pounder William Parks led the way for Perham winning all four of his matches, three by fall. Parks pinned Mora’s Colton Smith in 90 seconds, won a 5-1 decision over North Branch’s Tristan LaBelle, pinned Ellsworth’s Brandon WanderMarlas at 4:43 and Forest Lake’s Will Rivard at 4:40 to wrap up his perfect day.

Ben Nelson (113-pounds), and Chase Curtis (120) were both 3-1 on the day with three pins.

Patrick Glynn (160) won three of his four matches, all by decision.

Dylan Fudge (106), Sam Pirrotta (126), Tyler Fudge (132), Dylan Perrine (138), Cole Schmitz (170), and Trent Jahnke (195) all went 2-2 on the day.

Jahnke recorded Perham’s second-fastest pin sticking Forest Lake’s Jack Davis in 50 seconds.

Both victories by Schmitz were pins. Dylan Fudge, Pirrotta, Tyler Fudge and Perrine all had one win by fall.

Heavyweight Jesse Bucholz was 1-1 in two matches with a pin and received two forfeits.

Perham gained some tough, but useful experience facing seven ranked Wisconsin wrestlers in the loss to Ellsworth.

Chase Curtis squared off with No. 10 Anders Lantz in a close 7-4 defeat.

Sam Pirrotta took on No. 1 Jens Lantz scoring 11 points in a 21-11 defeat.

Dylan Perrine took No. 6 Brad Cain to the third period before being pinned at 5:14.

Patrick Glynn was pinned at 2:59 by No. 1 Gable Frandsen.

Cole Schmitz was pinned by No. 2 Logan Kemmerer at 1:09.

Jesse Klatt lost a 10-3 decision to No. 11 Brock Steldt.

Jesse Bucholz got a big pin, and Perham’s quickest of the day at 42 seconds, over No. 10 (220 pounds) Ken Stowe.

Perham (15-7) returns home for a big Section 8AA matchup with Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus (14-1) Tuesday evening (Jan. 21) at 7:30 p.m. at PWMS.
