Hastings, Somers help Lynden rebound from loss


Lynden boys' basketball bounced back from its first loss with a 66-51 win over White River. Scott Hastings led the Lions with 20 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks.

Sterling Somers also had season-high 20 points for Lynden.

"I think watching Marshawn Lynch grind out yards inspired them," Lynden coach Brian Roper said in a phone interview. "Somers brought his 'A-game.' He shot well and was really active. Hastings just filled out the stat sheet."

Despite losing the turnover battled 10-8, Lynden held the advantage in rebounding with 34 to White River's 22.

"It was a good bounce-back game. You're always one win from feeling better after a loss," Roper said.

Lynden's next game is at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, at Nooksack Valley.
