Lynden boys basketball routs Semiahmoo Secondary in home opener

After a week of scrimmaging against themselves, the Lynden boys finally played a different opponent and won handily, beating Semiahmoo Secondary 68-26 in their home opener Tuesday.

Lynden built a 17-11 lead in the first quarter.

“We had the typical first-game jitters, but it was good to get them out of our system,” coach Brian Roper said.

The Lions outrebounded a taller Semiahmoo team by eight. Christian Zamora had a game-high 17 points for Lynden.

Bellingham 59, Granite Falls 44 – Granite Falls shot 78 percent in the first half, but Bellingham played lock-down defense thereafter. Emblematic of the Red Raiders’ shooting struggles, they had 56 shot attempts to Granite Falls’ 35 but made only two more baskets. Bellingham’s Spencer Lee scored 14 points and had six steals.

Ferndale 54, Mariner 53 – A Mariners player missed two free throws with no time left on the clock. The Golden Eagles had to claw back after trailing by nine midway through the fourth quarter. James Hinson had 11 points and 21 rebounds.

Squalicum 70, Marysville-Pilchuck 54 – Damek Mitchell had a triple-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for the Storm. Squalicum’s Noah Westerhoff scored a game-high 17 points, and Jacob Johnson scored 10 points and had eight rebounds off the bench.
