Soares sisters lead Mount Baker to win in first game of the season

Girls

Mount Baker led by only six points entering the fourth quarter, but then the Soares sisters took over to take care of Nooksack Valley 53-32 on Monday at Mount Baker High School.

Senior Jessica Soares and junior Stephanie Soares combined for 24 points and carried the Mountaineers to a 23-point fourth quarter. Jessica finished with 18 points and was a force in the paint with her 6-foot-4 frame.

“They did a good job of pounding the ball inside,” Nooksack Valley coach Shane Wichers said. “Fatigue became an issue for us in the fourth quarter.”
