The Libby High School boys basketball team

blew an eight-point halftime lead only to come alive later in a

second overtime on Thursday to defeat Bigfork, 63-50.

The Loggers jumped out to a 17-10 lead in the

first quarter and extended that advantage to eight points by

halftime. But in the third quarter, Bigfork started to click and

the Logger lead got smaller and smaller. Bigfork’s Ian Lorang hit a

three-pointer to force overtime. Later, Colter Trent found Carter

Sorensen for a hoop to force the second OT.

The Loggers took over the rest of the way by

finishing the game with a 14-1 run in the second OT.

James Hare, who played a key role in the

second OT, finished with a team-high 16 points. Fellow big man,

Alex Cislo, added 15 points and Kelly May pumped in 13 for the

Loggers.

Sorensen led the Class B Eagles (8-4) with 17

points.

Libby was involved in another close

nonconference game on Friday with a 42-30 loss to Glacier in

Kalispell. The Loggers led the Class AA school 17-13 at halftime

and entered the fourth quarter in a 25-25 tie.

But in the fourth, the Wolfpack (4-6)

outscored Libby, 17-5, to take the victory.

Cislo led the Loggers with seven points and

seven rebounds. Glacier’s Kyle Griffith finished with a game-high

nine points.

Libby (2-1, 6-5) is scheduled to play Tuesday

at Eureka and at home on Saturday against Whitefish.
