Somers leads way as Lynden girls beat Anacortes


Stephanie Somers had a double-double to lead the Lynden Lions girls' basketball team to a 43-29 Northwest Conference victory Friday, Jan. 10, at Anacortes.

Lions coach Rob Adams said his team made defensive energy a priority after a loss to Burlington-Edison on Monday, Jan. 6, and it showed as Tania Daou was the only Anacortes player to get into double figures and the Seahawks only shot 10 of 39 from the field.

Lynden's Elisa Kooiman had 15 points and Somers had 12 points and 10 rebounds.

"(Somers) probably had the most complete game she's played," Adams said in a phone interview.

The Lions, who improved to 7-4 overall and 3-1 in the NWC, is back in action at 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, with a non-conference game at White River.
