PREP BOYS' BASKETBALL: Lynden has good night at home

It was good night all around for the Lynden Lions on Saturday as they beat the Lynden Christian Lyncs 56-22 at home in boys’ basketball.

Adam DeLange had 16 points for the Lions and Jacob Martin had 10 points.

“I thought DeLange and Martin kind of took turns getting hot for awhile,” Lynden coach Brian Roper said in a phone interview. “I think we’re starting to execute better and our timing’s getting better.”

Lynden’s Brady Bomber had 12 points, two 3-pointers and six assists in the win.The Lyncs were only down 15-13 after one period but were outscored 41-9 in the final three quarters.

“The Lynden Christian kids played with good effort and they hung around for awhile,” Roper said. “They just had a hard time scoring.”

Lynden also unveiled its 2006-07 Class 2A state championship banner and introduced the inaugural class of the Lynden High School Hall of Fame.

The first class of the hall are Hub DeJong, Rollie DeKoster, Howard Heppner and Jake Maberry.
