GIRLS SOCCER: Columbia Falls 8, Libby 1

Print Article

Two girls handled most of the scoring for Columbia Falls against Libby on Saturday, Sept. 23 in Columbia Falls.

Hannah Gedlaman tallied four goals and Josie Windauer added three for a hat trick to lead the Wildkats to a 7-0 halftime lead and eventual win over Libby.

“She had the game of her life,” Columbia Falls coach O’Brien Byrd said of Gedlaman. “Obviously, in the goals column, she put in four, but she put it all together today.”

Ave McDonald — a freshman starting in goal for the Wildkats in place of Madeline Jarvis, who was out of town — recorded seven saves.

“I was just so proud of her,” Byrd said.

The offense gave McDonald more than enough margin for error, scoring three goals in a seven-minute span on two separate occasions in the first half.

“A game like this really allows us to focus on some things we need to work on as a team,” Byrd said. “A big element that we’d love to improve on is possession, and we certainly developed that side of the game today.”

The Wildkats will look to take control of the conference when rival Whitefish visits at 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Libby returns to action at 4 p.m. Thursday.
