Algoma girls let road game slip away

At halftime on Friday night, the Algoma High School girls basketball team led by 10 but NEW Lutheran flipped the script in the second stanza to pull out a close game, 42-39. Algoma has lost three in a row and Friday’s defeat was almost solely due to the performance of Blazer role player Josie Nelson. She had a game-high 19 points for NEW Lutheran. Chloe Spitzer led Algoma with 14.

Algoma hosts Oconto on Tuesday night. Both teams are in the bottom half of the conference standings.
