After throwing a shutout in Week 1, the Lynden Christian football team found No. 4 Cascade Christian had a little too much firepower to stop in a 35-13 non-league loss Saturday in Sumner.
Madden Tobeck rushed for two touchdowns for Cascade Christian, including one from 58 yards out on the Cougars’ first possession of the second half. Tyquan Coleman also rushed for a touchdown and scored another from 87 yards out after catching a pass on a wheel route. Adam Whitaker also caught a 67-yard scoring pass from Parker Johnson in the fourth quarter.
The Lyncs, who fell to 1-1,scored on their first possession of the game on a long run by Jordan Riddle. He also had a 70-yard run to the end zone in the first quarter called back on a holding call, but still had a big night.
“Jordan Riddle just battled,” LC coach Dan Kaemingk said. “I’ve done this for a lot of years and never had a back battle the way Jordan did. I’m really proud of him.”
Zach Sipma emerged as a threat at receiver, Kaemingk said, and added a touchdown reception in the fourth quarter from 2 yards out.
“I’m proud of the guys’ effort, but the execution wasn’t there,” Kaemingk said. “Now we need to go back and work on a few things and try to get better from this.”
