Lynden Christian boys finish in win over Ferndale

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 20, 2014 

Lynden Christian's boys' basketball team had to battle back in the fourth quarter, but was able to overcome Ferndale's late surge to get a 55-51 win at home Monday, Jan. 20. The Lyncs were led by Logan Carlson's 15 points and 11 rebounds

"It was a hard-fought battle beginning to end. They took the lead halfway through the fourth, but our kids did a good job battling back," Lynden Christian coach Roger De Boer said in a phone interview. "Logan Carlson was a real bright spot for us. ... He was a spark on both sides of the ball rebounding and altering shots on defense."

Brady Shearer led the Golden Eagles with 17 points, including five of Ferndale's 3-pointers.

"We had to pay close attention to him all night," De Boer said.

Jake Van Berkum, Zach Roetcisoender and Grant Wolffis each added nine points for the Lyncs.

Lynden Christian looks to keep rolling on Saturday, Jan. 25, at home against Friday Harbor. Ferndale plays next at home on Friday, Jan. 24, against Nooksack Valley.
