MOORHEAD - Stingy defense blended with balanced scoring put Pelican Rapids back in the state tournament.

Four different players scored in double figures as the Vikings pulled away in the second half for 74-48 victory against Crosby-Ironton on Friday for the Minnesota Class 2A, Section 8 boys basketball title at Memorial Auditorium.


The 48 points were a season low for the defending section champ Crosby-Ironton, which beat Pelican Rapids in the section finals last season.
