The Alexandria boys' basketball team had another chance to close out a tight game on Friday but came up a few seconds short in a 56-54 loss to Brainerd.


The Warriors came into the night with a 9-0 record in the Central Lakes Conference and left with their perfect record intact. But it took everything they had. Alexandria's junior guard John Vogeler made sure of that as he poured in 17 points in the second half and finished with a game-high 21.
