#6 Hawley @ #3 Perham – BBB (

The Basketball game lived up to expectations.  The two teams split in the regular season, and the word patience was used as the Perham Yellowjackets team bought into the game plan and executed against Hawley, winning on their home court in the playoffs 67-59.  The first half saw 7 lead changes and a few ties as Perham would go into halftime leading 34-29.  The lead would stretch to 9,10,11 points in the second half, but still within the final two minutes of the game, Hawley would pull within 5 points but not enough as the Yellowjackets earn victory and are off to the Section Semifinals.

Perham (16-10)
Soren Anderson 21 points
Micah Thompson 15 points
Alex Ohm 13 points
Jacob Daniels 13 points
14-21 free throws, 20 rebounds, 7 turnovers
Perham will play Pelican Rapids in the Semifinals on Tuesday in Detroit Lakes
