Perham-It was a little bit of everything for the Perham Yellowjacket volleyball team at the annual Perham Invitational on Oct. 10. The Yellowjackets played dominant volleyball at times, and struggled with consistency at others. The Yellowjackets went 5-1 overall on their way to a second place finish out of the 16 team tournament.
The one that might haunt the Yellowjackets is the one they felt that got away, the championship game against Roseau. “It was a great tournament with some great teams. I thought our team did really well at times,” Perham Head Coach Eryn Moser said. “We had a great match against Melrose. Everything was clicking and we were really in the zone. In the championship, we broke down mentally. I told the girls one-to-two can have an off game, but we can’t afford everyone to have an off game and we really did against Roseau.” The Rams capitalized on several Perham miscues, the height and power of Ameila Johnson and Victoria Johnson in the 2-0 (25-15, 25-13) win. Unlike their previous game with Melrose, the Yellowjackets started slow out of the gates. Perham rallied back to tie it at five, before the Rams went on a 7-0 run, forcing the Yellowjackets to call time out. The Yellowjackets cut the lead to four after a kill from Ella Von Ruden, however, that was as close as they would get in the first game. The Rams closed out the first game with a 25-15 win over the Yellowjackets. It appeared that the Yellowjackets were quickly turning things around in the second game. The Yellowjackets built a 10-3 lead following a kill from Janie Wunderlich and an ace serve from Gabby DeBoer. A kill by Von Ruden extended the lead to 15-7, forcing the Rams to use their final time out early in the game. The Yellowjackets came out of the time out swinging, extending the lead to 20-10 against the Rams. A kill by Victoria Johnson slowly changed the momentum for the Rams. The Rams outscored the Yellowjackets, 15-3, after Perham built up its 10 point lead midway through the game. “Our serve receive was not consistent. When it was, then our sets were off and then you add in the fact that we weren’t bringing our ‘A’ game at the net, we just did not perform to the standard we set for ourselves,” Moser said. “It was not our game. Hopefully, we get the opportunity to play them again.” The Yellowjackets advanced to the championship with a dominating performance against Melrose in the semifinals. Melrose just finished upending Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton in the quarter finals, but it was all Perham in the semifinals.

They didn’t allow the Dutchmen to get any momentum in the early going. Perham breezed to a 25-13 win in the first game over the Dutchmen. The Yellowjackets continued that dominant play in the second game of their match with the Dutchmen. They built up a 12-6 lead following back-to-back kills from Von Ruden and Alex Lubitz. The Dutchmen closed to four points, 12-8, before the Yellowjackets outscored the Dutchmen, 13-4, closing out the second game, 25-12. The Yellowjackets advanced to the semifinals with a 2-0 victory over a familiar opponent in Hawley. The Yellowjackets won the match 26-24 and 25-14. They breezed through pool play, winning three straight matches, defeating Legacy Christian Academy, Warroad and Henning. Rutten finished with 63 kills for the tournament, while Von Ruden Added 31. DeBoer finished with 21 kills, while Olivia Strand finished with 17. Alex Lubitz added 11 kills.  [[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"2073324","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"320","title":"Perham VB2","width":"480"}}]] Pool Play Perham def.
