ROCHESTER (KTTC) -- The PEM Bulldogs, the No.1 team in the state in Class 2A, took care of business Monday night at the Mayo Civic Arena, advancing in East Sub-section play with a convincing 81-43 win over Chatfield.

The Chatfield Gophers were seeded No. 5 in the tournament, and used three-pointers to keep it close in the first half with Erik Hilgren leading the charge.  Chatfield only trailed 28-26 at one point before PEM answered the challenge with Sam Ruth having an outstanding first half.

But then PEM's Cole Olstad starting warming up--at the half it was the Bulldogs with an 11-point lead.  It was a 38-point margin by the time the final buzzer sounded.
