Bigfork smothers hoop Kats

By Beacon Staff

The Columbia Falls WildKats girls varsity faced a big, experienced Bigfork girls team tonight and got a taste of defense and perhaps added to their ToDo list for 2008.

Turnovers plagued the Kats, and Bigfork’s size didn’t help matters at all, as the Kats fell 55-36 in tonight’s home game.

Despite being behind for much of the game, the Kats kept their heads high and stayed focused. Come on out and support the boys and girls this winter. Their next game is at Sentinel, this coming Saturday.
