BOYS SOCCER: Columbia Falls 7, Libby 0

Print Article

It only took Columbia Falls half the game to do its damage against Libby Saturday, Sept. 23 in Columbia Falls.

The Wildcats scored seven goals in the first half, dismantling the Loggers at home.

Auguste Emond led the potent Columbia Falls attack with two goals and two assists. Jakob Grein added a pair of goals, while Reed Sandstrom had a goal and two assists.

“We had five different goal scorers, which we’re really excited about,” Columbia Falls head coach O’Brien Byrd said. “We played really well. We stuck with the game plan.

“We got some guys some minutes that don’t normally get as many minutes (in the second half), and I’m just proud of the way the team carried themselves.”

Libby managed only four shots on goal in the game, all of which were saved by Columbia Falls keeper Story Stemborski.

The Wildcats will look to avenge their loss to Whitefish earlier this month at 7 p.m. on Tuesday when the Bulldogs travel to Columbia Falls. Libby hosts Bigfork at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
