The Lynden Christian boys' soccer team was able to come back and earn a 1-1 draw at home with Anacortes in a Northwest Conference match Tuesday, April 9.
Murphy Zhang scored in the 37th minute off a Cody Fransen pass to pull the Lyncs (2-3-1 NWC, 4-4-1) even.
"It was a battle," Lynden Christian coach Brent De Ruyter said in a phone interview. "My goodness. Coming off the break you would expect teams to be flat but the teams today really got after each other. It was an evenly played match and both teams were physical and had good opportunities to get ahead in the second."
Brady Harvey had five saves in goal for Lynden Christian.
The Lyncs travel to Ferndale Monday, April 15, for a Northwest Conference match.
