Blue Earth Area was the final team from the KEYC region left after Jackson County Central was defeated Thursday in the 2-A semifinal.
The Buccaneers were at the dome Saturday evening taking on Perham for the chance to advance to the state 3-A championship.
B-E-A got on the board first with a pass from Kysten Zierke to Carter Hanson. The Yellow Jackets would tie it up, but the Bucs take a 24-13 lead to the lockers after two David Franta touchdowns and a Felix Harseim field goal. Blue Earth Area would start with the ball in the 2nd half and score with Franta's third T-D of the game, and it would add the insurance the Buccaneers would need to win 31-21.
