Golden Bears edge Bulldogs, 55-53

In the annual cross-town boys’ basketball contest, Bishop Garrigan hit a pair of late free throws to squeeze out a hard-fought 55-53 victory over Algona in a battle played in front of nice crowd at Algona High on Thursday, Dec. 22.

Brad Capesius hit a free throw with 17 seconds left and Chase Winkel sank one two seconds later to break a 53-53 dead-lock to give the visitors the win in battle that saw five ties and 11 lead changes during the contest.

Jackson Helmers nailed a three-pointer to open the game’s scoring before Chase Winkel’s rebound field goal got the visitors on the scoreboard at 3-2 early.
