Tour de Whatcom opens registration


The Tour de Whatcom bike ride, which will take place July 27, is open for registration.

Sehome senior Nash Boyd scored the game-winner in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter as Sehome-Bellingham beat Snohomish 8-7 in boys' high school lacrosse Saturday at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish to remain undefeated.

With the combined Snohomish-Glacier Peak High School prep squad leading 7-6 after the third, Sehome senior midfielder Alys Clark connected for the equalizer at 5:10 of the final set before Boyd beat Glacier Peak senior goalie Noah Palmaffy at the 4:12 mark.

Boyd finished the night with a pair of goals while Clark's game-tying goal completed a hat trick on the night.

Lynden's lone goals came from Luuk Veening and Jared Moffat in the second and third quarters.
