Pelican Rapids overcame a 28-25 halftime deficit to beat the Perham Yellowjackets 71-62 at the Hive on Friday night. “It was a tale of two halves tonight,” reported Pelican Rapids Head Coach John Gullingsrud. “In the first half, Perham controlled the pace of the game and we didn’t do a very good job of looking for quality shots on offense. We were more active in the second half defensively, which got us going in transition and created easier looks at the basket for us.”
