Perham struggled to sink shots in the Yellowjackets loss to the Breckenridge Cowgirls Tuesday, Feb. 9, in Breckenridge.

The Yellowjackets were 7-33 from deep and 7-20 from two. “We had lots of good looks and layups, the ball just wouldn’t go down," Coach TJ Super said. "It was a rough shooting night for the Jackets.”

Breckenridge, on the other hand, sunk eight 3-pointers in the game. Four of those came from Carcie Maten, who led the night’s scoring with 16 points.

Mya Morris, with 11 points, was the only Perham player in double figures for scoring.

The Yellowjackets are now 5-3 on the season. Perham hosts conference rival Hawley at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12.
