The Hawley Nugget football team started the second half of the regular season playing their best football all year. The Breckenridge Cowboys came to Hawley last Friday night boasting a perfect 4-0 record and being ranked #6 in the latest Class AA State Poll. The Cowboys wins included wins over Roseau, Pelican Rapids, and Crookston by a combined score of 121-6 over the previous three weeks. The Nuggets entered this critical matchup also coming off several impressive victories including wins over Crookston, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, and Roseau. A season ago, the Nuggets and Cowboys played a fantastic game down in Breckenridge with Hawley taking home a 44-26 win. The matchup this year didn’t disappoint either as this year’s game saw a large number of big plays in all facets of the game.
