Cowboys drop contests to Algona, Webster City

The Clarion-Goldfield varsity boys basketball team came up without a win in three games last week. The Cowboys hosted the Algona Bulldogs on Tuesday night and lost a 73-56 decision. Algona was up 18-11 after a quarter and 33-22 at halftime. The score was 49-37 Algona after three periods of play.

  “This was a big game for us,” said head coach Scott Herrig. “They have a 6’5” kid we had to deal with, and size is not our forte this year. Having said that, we did a good job of keeping him off the boards and only gave them one-chance opportunities. We had a pretty solid first half, then the Bulldogs made a big run to put us down 25 in the third. We answered right back with a 13-point run to cut it to twelve. In the fourth, we didn’t get the key buckets to get closer.”
