Boys Basketball wins.
Nuggets 86, Wadena-Deer Creek 23.

And so March Madness begins with opening round action of the Section 8AA playoffs! The #1-seeded Hawley Nuggets kicked off post-season play facing the #8-ranked Wadena-Deer Creek (WDC) Wolverines Thursday in Hawley. The winner of the game would go on to face the winner of the Barnesville-Breckenridge matchup.

The night would belong to the Maroon and Gold as the Wolverines were able to connect just five times in the first half – four from the field and once from the line, while nearly every Nugget connected from nearly every location taking a 57-9 half-time lead.

The second half proved much the same with the Wolverines adding 14 to their total and the Nuggets’ full team getting some good minutes, ending the game 86-23.

This would be the last game on the Hawley home court for the Nugget seniors – Devon, Jacob, Brandon Logan, and Zach. We wish them and all the team and coaches good luck in the rest of post-season play. Let’s show the Nuggets our support and turn out in full force this Saturday at 6 pm at Concordia College.
