Libby 3, Polson 0
At Polson Middle School last Thursday, the Lady Pirates were tasked with toppling a top tier team teeming with talented talls. But as the contest progressed, the level of play exhibited by their visiting undefeated opponent would lead to lament that they lacked the leverage to lash a licking upon the lanky, league leading Libby Lady Logger lassies.
