The Algoma girls' basketball team battled hard against the bigger competition on Thursday, but they are still looking for their first win of the year after falling to Freedom 48-27.
The Wolves were chasing a single-digit deficit heading into the break, but the Irish showed why they won their conference last year, outscoring Algoma 22-9 in the second half.
Ryley Zimmerman led the Wolves with 12 points, while Sierra Slaby chipped in nine points, registering the team's lone three-pointer on the night. The Irish had four players at least flirt with double digits, led by Haley Reed's 10 points. Abbie Cropsey narrowly missed a double-double, registering eight points and 11 rebounds.
