Foul trouble dooms Mariners in loss to Cubs

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 21, 2013 

Sehome's boys' basketball team's lone senior, Evan Miksovsky, got into foul trouble early and the Mariners' young squad couldn't snag a victory, falling to Sedro-Woolley 74-67 on Saturday, Dec. 21, at Sedro-Woolley High School.

Miksovsky picked up his third foul before the half, which limited his playing time in the third before eventually fouling out in the fourth. With a young squad taking over the Mariners committed 24 turnovers but still hung with the Cubs.

"After him, we don't have any seniors," Sehome coach AJ Labree said in a phone interview. "It was a good game for the younger players to step up and they did. They just fell short."

Duncan James' 12 points and 12 rebounds kept the Mariners in the game, and Leif Anderson hit five 3-pointers on his way to 25 points.

"We'll have to make this loss up down the line somewhere," Labree said. "Every game they get under their belts, they're improving. This is the second game that we've had a chance but weren't able to pull it out. Once we get that close win, we'll be fine."

Sehome (3-2) travels to Lynden on Monday, Dec. 23, to take on the Lions.
