Hailey Wenzelman scored a game-high 17 points and Ashlynn Brown added 12 points and seven rebounds tonight to lift Perrysburg to a 44-28 girls basketball victory over visiting Napoleon, giving the Yellow Jackets an outright Northern Lakes League championship.

Perrysburg (13-9, 12-2 NLL) got off to a slow start, missing 10 of its first 11 shots from the field, but regrouped quickly to launch a game-changing 13-0 run for a 15-6 lead 1:14 into the second quarter.

The Jackets pushed their lead to 21-12 by halftime, and the Wildcats (9-13, 6-8) fell behind 27-14 early in the third quarter. They got no closer than 11 thereafter.

Perrysburg, which won its third NLL title in five seasons, ended the two-year championship run of Northview.

Bethany Blackwood and Olivia Behnfeldt led Napoleon with seven points apiece, and Behnfeldt also grabbed seven rebounds.
