Second-half surge keeps Lynden Christian girls basketball unbeaten

The Lynden Christian girls basketball team scored 17 points in the third and fourth quarters to earn a 64-50 Northwest Conference win over Meridian on Friday.

The Lyncs trailed by one point at halftime but refocused when coach Brady Bomber spoke to his team.

“I told them to get back to our basics,” Bomber said. “We wanted to play with great toughness and make sure we were sound defensively in the second half.”

Lynden Christian was also sound offensively as Riley Van Hulzen poured in a game-high 21 points. Emmalee Bailey also chipped in 15 points on four 3-pointers.

Nooksack Valley 46, Blaine 34 – Rachel Sande contributed 19 points to help lead Nooksack Valley to a Northwest Conference win. She had eight field goals and was 3 of 4 from the free-throw line. The Pioneers held the Borderites scoreless in the first quarter.

Mount Baker 47, Ferndale 40 – The Mountaineers outscored Ferndale 31-19 in the second half to earn a Northwest Conference win. Danielle Tyler had a game-high 15 points to lead Mount Baker. Both teams hadn’t played since Dec. 5 due to after-school activities being canceled from the snow.

Sehome 51, Sedro-Woolley 48 – A balanced scoring effort helped Sehome earn its first Northwest Conference win of the season. Alex Payne led the Mariners with 12 points but right behind her were Madison Ulrich and Sarah Eisess with 11 points each. Payne also had two rebounds and two steals.
