Jordan Hein and Payton Jordahl each scored two touchdowns in the first half to lead Perham to an easy 42-8 victory over Esko in the Minnesota Class 3A state quarterfinals Saturday.


The Yellowjackets scored on three of their first four possessions to take a seemingly insurmountable lead over the Eskomos amid rain and high winds.

"These guys are just so focused," Perham Head Coach Mike Jordahl said. "It's amazing and I'm just so happy for everyone on the team."
