Rubbert stuffs stat sheet to boost Lynden Christian to win

Lynden Christian coach Roger DeBoer didn’t know what to expect from his team this season after seven seniors graduated from the program.

He found out Tuesday this team is ready to play as host Lynden Christian beat Friday Harbor 73-36.

“I was pleased with our fast start,” DeBoer said. “It felt like having a brand new team with energy and enthusiasm.”

Grant Rubbert led the way with 23 points and had eight rebounds, six assists and five steals. The Lyncs forced 23 turnovers and held Friday Harbor to one scorer in double figures.

Bellingham 60, Nooksack Valley 46 – Bellingham used its athleticism to get into the lane and score 26 points in the paint. Spencer Lee and Caden Mee each scored a game-high 15 points. The Red Raiders were outscored 20-15 in the first quarter but held the advantage in the rest.
