Hot shooting leads Algona girls
The 14th-ranked Algona Bulldog girls’ basketball team built a huge first-half lead on some torrid shooting and cruised to its first victory of the 2017-2018 season with a 63-48 win over the Estherville-Lincoln Central Midgettes in a game played on Monday, Nov. 27 at Estherville.
The visitors connected on 14-of-19 field goals in the opening half as the squad built a commanding 26-point lead at halftime. The red-and-black cooled off in the second half and a late run by the home team made the final score look closer than the contest was.
The two teams traded field goals to start the game before the Midgettes took its only lead of the game at 4-2 before Algona answered with a 10-0 run to take a 12-4 advantage.
