A Wet Homecoming for Columbia Falls

By Beacon Staff

Friday was a wet evening in Columbia Falls, where the Cats took on a tough Libby team for homecoming. Unfortunately, the Loggers’ speed was too much for the Cats, as Libby left town with a 41-21 victory.

There were a few bright spots, including a 98 yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Scott Palmer – which came at a time when the Cats really needed a lift.
