Nickelson, Matthews’ HRs top off Hornets’ comeback

Fulton surges past Moberly 10-7, picks up first NCMC win of season

Seniors Jake Nickelson and Jake Matthews, though, put the emphasis on Fulton’s rousing rally an inning later.

Nickelson blasted a two-run home run and Matthews followed with a solo shot in the sixth, sending the Hornets to their first NCMC win of the season with a 10-7 triumph over the Spartans at the high school athletic complex.
