MANSFIELD SENIOR VS PERKINS
Tygers Survive Perkins In 3 OT’s
Mansfield Senior avoided an 0-2 start with a thrilling 35-34 win at Sandusky Perkins in triple overtime.

Each squad found the end zone in all three extra sessions, but Senior High would block the Pirates PAT that would have forced a fourth overtime to secure a gutsy road win.
