Buzz-beater topples Wildcats
Janna Julius laid in an easy basket off a nice feed from Abbey Holmes to just beat the buzzer to give the Algona Bulldogs an exciting 43-41 North Central Conference girls’ basketball win over the Humboldt Wildcats in a game played in Algona on Friday, Dec. 2.
Humboldt had the ball, looking for the final shot of the game but turned the ball over with six seconds to go. The Bulldogs called a timeout and got the ball into Aliyah Buscher, who passed ahead to a driving Holmes that dump the ball off to Julius for the game-winning shot.
Maddie Miller hit a three-pointer to open the game’s scoring but the Wildcats answered with the next six points to take a 6-3 lead for the purple-and-gold.
