Defense helps hoop Cats push past Libby

By Beacon Staff

Despite Libby’s hot outside shooting, Columbia Falls’ patient offense and often enveloping defense guided them to a 59-53 win Friday night in C-Falls.

Zane Ridings (21) and Mackey Nolan surround Logger Joel Fuller (32).

Grant Getts (44) battles for a rebound.

Mackey Nolan (22) slices and dices for a layup between Jordan Gragert (50) and Zach Rowan (10).

Blonde guys on one side, brown haired guys on the other?

Chase Grilley (33) eyes his shot while Libby’s Jim Mee (24) stands guard.

A moment later, we see that Mee didn’t stop him, as Grilley skies straight up and sinks the short jumper.
