Perham-Against Battle Lake, Jenson Beachy led the way with 28 points. On Tuesday, it was Reid Moser’s turn to lead the Yellowjackets. Moser led a trio of Yellowjackets in double figures, helping the Yellowjackets to a 73-44 victory over the Crookston Pirates at the Prairie Wind Middle School gymnasium. “We started out a little slow and a little sluggish. After we got going the intensity level was turned up,” Perham Head Coach Dave Cresap said. “The most pleasing thing was the ability to take care of the basketball and not turn it over. They played every defense they could against us to try and slow us down.” Moser finished with a game high of 28 points, connecting on eight 3-pointers in the win. “He was on fire, but he can do that, once we get him settled in and he gets confidence, we are really hard to guard,” Cresap said. “We won by close to 30 and had subpar performances out of Jaden and Jenson tonight, but our bench really stepped up. We had great minutes from Martin LaFond, Dart Montella, Dawson Honer and Noah Christenson. Our bench was just superb, I can’t appreciate that enough.” Aaron Solberg recorded a double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Zack Tellinghuisen finished with 12 points as well for Perham.
The Yellowjackets finished with just five turnovers in the game, while dealing out 17 assists. Crookston constantly switched defenses trying to slow down Perham, yet the Yellowjackets handled the pressure well. Perham built up a 12-2 lead, before Crookston rallied back, cutting it to 17-15. Perham answered with a 15-0 run, led by Tellinghuisen. Tellinghuisen had seven of the 15 points during that run. Crookston struggled to get going offensively against the Yellowjackets in the second half. They were just 14 of 46 from the field in the game and hit on six of their 22 3-point attempts. Matt Garmen led the way for Crookston. He finished with nine points. The Yellowjackets controlled the glass as well, out-rebounding the Pirates, 38-27. Solberg did most of his work on the offensive glass, grabbing eight offensive rebounds, leading to several second chance points. The victory improves the Yellowjackets to 7-0 overall on the season. The Yellowjackets return to action on Monday, Dec. 28 against Marantha Christian Academy at 8 p.m. in the opening round of the Grand8 Holiday Classic.
