Balanced offense gives Golden Eagles close win


John Weg led Ferndale's boys' basketball team to a 70-66 win over Burlington-Edison on Friday, Jan. 3, at Ferndale High School.

Weg was one of four players to score in double-figures, but it was his dunk and five blocks that gave the team a spark.

"With a team as classy as Burlington, it was a good win for us," Ferndale coach Monte Walton said in a phone interview.

The Golden Eagles fell behind 22-15 in the first quarter but Malik Ivory scored 10 of his 14 points after coming off the bench in the second quarter.

"We really got a good team effort today," Walton said. "Our bench really helped out."

Ferndale (4-5, NWC 2-0) travels to take on Sedro-Woolley on Monday, Jan. 6.
