Comparing lineups and previous stats on the Perrysburg Yellow Jackets and Anthony Wayne Generals anyone could have told you it was going to be a close game.
From the same undefeated record in the Northern Lakes League to the intensity of play from each side during every minute of every game.
Not only was it close but it was down to the wire. So close that an overtime period was needed to decide the game.
It was the Generals in the end who would end up on top on Tuesday night, executing in the final minutes to win 71–65 in overtime.

On a chilly December night the Perrysburg Yellow Jackets arrived at the Springfield High School to take on the Blue Devils.
The Jackets were coming off their season open victory against the St. Francis Knights. This would be their first appointment inside of the fierce Northern Lakes League.
A conference that is full of experience, height, and talent. All three things the Springfield brought to the table.
