At Homecoming, the Polson Lady Pirates got an early goal from Sophia Moderie, then had to stave off multiple challenges by the visiting Bigfork Valkyries to keep themselves in the hunt for a postseason playoff berth. Kyla Heiser turned in a strong defensive performance, diffusing a couple of explosive incursions into the Polson box with bursts of speed and some deft footwork.
