Schilder goes down as Bellingham boys' basketball loses to Anacortes


Anacortes' boys' basketball team topped Bellingham 91-60 on Thursday, Dec. 5, at Anacortes High School behind Ty Johnson's big game for the Seahawks. The Red Raiders also suffered a setback early in the game when they lost a key player.

"We came out with good intensity and played a good first quarter," Bellingham coach Brad McKay said in a phone interview. "Our starting center (Logan Schilder) went out in the first minute and might have a broken leg. We were unable to rebound after that and couldn't get stops on defense."

Johnson finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds and six assists to lead Anacortes in each of those categories. He also made four 3-pointers and fouled out.

Bellingham's Tristan Hurley led the Red Raiders with 23 points and also fouled out.

McKay credited a balanced Anacortes attack with the win, adding that every shift Bellingham made defensively was countered by the Seahawks.

Bellingham's next game is at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, at Meridian.
