Strength and team building forged in the Lynden Christian weight room helped propel the Lyncs to a share of their first 1A NWC title since 2001 and a Northwest District playoff date with King’s on Friday.
Dylan Roberts and Dawson Smith combined to rush for 243 yards and four touchdowns as Sehome rallied to beat Bellingham, 28-21 on Friday, Oct. 26. The Mariners advance to a winner-to-state game Friday, Nov. 2, at Archbishop Murphy.
The most meaningful Sehome-Bellingham football game of the 21st century became the most memorable comeback as well. But, believe it or not, the rivals must do it all over again this week in their first district 2A playoff game — and this one will be an elimination game.
