The Ronan Chiefs dropped a high school football game to the Libby Loggers, 55-6, Friday.

There haven’t been many bright spots for the Chiefs (0-3) but they did get a few standout plays.

One was a 62-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Kelsch to Matthew Victor and an interception by Trapper McAllister. Daniel Bishop caught two passes for 23 yards and Dylan Davis had a 36-yard catch.

Libby junior running back Dawson Young had two 100-yard games as the Loggers opened the season with lopsided wins over Whitefish and Browning.

But Friday night he nearly eclipsed his season total as the Loggers routed Ronan, 55-6.

Young ran for 223 yards on 18 carries and four touchdowns. Young entered the game with 230 yards on 55 yards and four scores.

In addition to his vision and the ability to evade tacklers, Young had outstanding blocking from everyone around him.

Libby, which has had some lean years lately, is 3-0 and hopeful for a playoff berth after a 5-4 campaign in 2018 left it just short of the postseason.

Libby also got touchdowns from Aydan Williamson, Ryker McElmurray, David Patterson and Hunter Hoover.

Libby totaled 443 yards rushing while limiting the Chiefs (0-3) to 156 total yards.

The Loggers (3-0) host Columbia Falls Friday. The Chiefs (0-3) host Polson. Both games kick off at 7 p.m.
