The Libby Loggers boys’ soccer team fell 6-2 to the Billings Central Rams last Friday in a grueling road test. The Loggers stormed off an 11-hour bus ride to an early 1-0 lead when Johnny Davidson scored on a Cody Wood assist in the 10th minute.

A quick response from the Rams knotted the game at 1-1, but the Loggers reclaimed the lead when Davidson netted his second goal of the game in the 24th minute behind a Giovanni Cano assist.

A rapid-fire Rams offensive onslaught shifted the game to 4-2 in favor of last year’s state runner-ups at halftime. Billings Central would go on to score twice in the second half.

“We have been caught off guard several times this year following goals,” Coach Charlie Webster said. “We need to be better prepared to play well following goals by either team.”

The 6-2 loss was an improvement from last year’s 6-0 defeat.
