The Algoma Wolves girls’ basketball team suffered a loss to the Southern Door Eagles on Monday evening, 68-40.
The Wolves pulled ahead for an early 3-0 lead but could not hold on for long as the Eagles gathered a 15-5 scoring run led by senior Nicole Norton who had 14 points in the first half. After consecutive defensive stops by Southern Door, the Wolves were unable to gather a scoring rhythm and finished the first half down 29-11. Junior Ella Madden of the Wolves started out the second half with a swish jumper but within a matter of seconds the Eagles stopped the momentum with a basket of their own. The Eagles applied a half-court press midway through the second half to the Wolves and that was all she wrote. Norton led all scorers, finishing with 30 points on the day while Algoma was led by sophomore Emily Kirchman with 15 points. The Eagles improved to 4-0 in conference and head back home tomorrow to face the undefeated Brillion Lions at 7pm. The Wolves remained winless and are set to play next on January 4th, 2021 against Sevastopol.
