Lynden Christian waited until 10 minutes were left in its Class 1A District Tournament match against Mount Baker to score a goal. Once it did, though, the floodgates opened.
Bailee Den Bleyker scored a goal in the 70th minute, and soon after the Lyncs added three more goals to come away with a 4-0 shutout Saturday, Oct. 29, at Sedro-Woolley High School.
Coach Brent De Ruyter said his team didn’t finish well for most of the game, but he knew once the Lyncs got a goal, they’d be able to score more.
“That first goal was obviously a relief,” De Ruyter said. “It changed how we were able to play because Baker had to bring more numbers and we could attack and get the ball wide.”
Never miss a local story.
Kenadi Bratt, Libby Hielkema and Mackenzie Clark scored the final three goals that ensured Lynden Christian will advance to the Bi-District Tournament. The Lyncs will play University Prep on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Interlake High School.
