Email News Alerts

MOORHEAD – Hunter Nickel used his dad as motivation Tuesday night at Memorial Auditorium.

The Moorhead Park Christian senior scored 25 points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked seven shots. That monster effort sparked the Falcons to a 47-39 victory against Fergus Falls Hillcrest in the Minnesota Class 1A, Section 6 boys basketball semifinals.


Nickel’s dad, Shane, couldn’t attend the section semifinals because he was on the East Coast on a business trip.
