COLUMBIA FALLS Columbia Falls did the bulk of its scoring in the final quarter 31 points to upend Whitefish 57-25 in a Northwest A conference girls basketball game on Thursday evening.
One of those crazy games, Columbia Falls coach Cary Finberg said.
But not very often for Columbia Falls.
The Wildkats could muster just three points in the first quarter and three in the second for a 12-8 halftime lead.
We shot 18 percent, Finberg said.
Could get nothing to go.
Columbia Falls (9-1 overall, 4-0 league) failed to score from the three-minute mark of the first quarter until Dani Douglas nailed a 3 with 39 seconds to go in the first half.
Those were the only points Douglas had on the night.
Trista Cowan led Columbia Falls offensively with 16 points. Hannah Gedlaman had 10 and Ryley Kehr nine.
Payton Kastella had a big game for Whitefish with 12 points.
