The Bulldogs were unable to overcome a six-point deficit Thursday night against Libby at home.

The Loggers won the Northwest A matchup 59-50.

Lee Walburn led Whitefish with 17 points. Ryan Kemm added 11.

At the end of the first quarter the teams were only two points apart with Whitefish leading at 17. While the lead bounced between the two throughout the game, Libby ultimately outscored Whitefish in three quarters of play to take the win.
