The Bellingham boys’ soccer team got contributions from everybody in a 6-0 win over Blaine on Tuesday at Phillips 66 Soccer Park, in what Red Raider coach Matt Zigulis called “the definition of a team victory.”
Five different Bellingham players scored goals starting in the sixth minute on a Casey Carter goal assisted by Connor Steward. Waylon Uhrig had a goal in the 29th minute on an assist by goalie Joe Worley, and added his second goal of the game in the 57th minute on an assist by Bjorn Barrett. Anders Mittet, Spencer Sumpter and Keenan Knuuttilla all tallied goals as well.
“We spread the wealth today,” Zigulis said. “It was a great team effort because everyone played their role.”
Christian Ramos and Grant Reinstra deserve as much credit on the defensive end as the two helped muffle Blaine’s attack.
Burlington-Edison 2, Lynden Christian 1 – Oscar Ibarra scored both of visiting Burlington-Edison’s goals as the Lyncs dropped a Northwest Conference game. With the game tied 1-1, a Burlington and Lynden Christian player collided and a penalty kick was awarded to the Tigers in the 69th minute. Ibarra stepped up and drilled the shot which was the eventual game-winner.
Ferndale 3, Meridian 1 – Visiting Ferndale scored two early goals to jump on a “flat-footed” Meridian team in a Northwest Conference matchup. Meridian scored a goal on a penalty kick early in the second half, but the Golden Eagles answered to beat the Trojans.
Lynden 4, Mount Baker 0: Nick Parris scored two goals and logged an assist, while Caleb Hicks recorded a goal and two assists to help Lynden to its second straight victory. The Lions have not lost in eight straight. Parris scored 10 minutes in off an assist from Hicks, before making it 2-0 in the 57th minute off an assist from Ernesto Zamora. Hicks scored in the 70th off an assist from Parris, before Hicks assisted Jose Rios in the 77th to round out the scoring. Jonathan Lara got Lynden’s fourth shutout of the year.
Nooksack Valley 2, Lakewood 2: The Pioneers picked up their first points of the season with a NWC tie at Lakewood Monday. Nooksack remains a half-game behind the Cougars in the NWC standings.
Meridian 0, Granite Falls 0: The Trojans picked up a scoreless tie in a non-league game against the visiting Tigers on Monday.
