Bellingham's baseball team topped Ferndale 9-7 on Saturday, March 30, at Ferndale in a non-conference game.
Aaron Burke, Connor Phelps and Oscar White combined for six hits and five RBI for the Red Raiders, while Charlie Carmichael picked up the win on the mound.
"It was pretty sloppy, and they just happened to make more plays than we did early in the game," Ferndale coach Donny Hennigs said in a phone interview.
Both Bellingham (7-2, 2-0 NWC)) and Ferndale (6-4, 2-0 NWC) play on Monday, April 1, with the Red Raiders hosting Lynden Christian and the Golden Eagles traveling to Burlington-Edison.
