DL matmen down FF
It was a clash between two of the Section 8-2A contenders, as Perham came out on top of the host Detroit Lakes Lakers 35-27 Friday.
The Yellowjackets took care of business early by building a 17-5 lead, before the Lakers started digging out of the deficit by winning the next three of four matches to trim it to 23-15.
But Perham rung up a big pin at 145-pounds, where Colin was able to record the fall on No. 7 ranked sophomore Parker Jackson for the 23-9 advantage.
Laker Zach Baker won a big match at 138, after he posted a 14-6 major decision on No. 9 ranked Luke Sailer.
Another upset was recorded by Perham's Chase Curtis at 120, as he won by an 8-5 decision over No. 9 ranked Luke Payne.
For the Lakers, Jarett Nosal won 8-3 over Brady Sazama at 152, Jeff Gailfus was an 8-5 winner over Patrick Glynn at 160, while Jason Griego (182) and Cameron Fritz (195) won by decision, as well.
Mike Renteria capped the match with a pin on Jesse Bucholz and wrap up the score at 35-27.
The Lakers didn't compete in the Thief River Falls Invite, due to bad weather, and will host the Mid-State Conference meet Friday, starting at 4 p.m.
