Meridian boys still hunting for first win after loss to Sedro

The Meridian boys basketball team is still searching for its first win of the season following its 77-69 Northwest Conference loss to Sedro-Woolley on Monday.

Sedro-Woolley shot better than 70 percent from the field in the first half and 65 percent from the 3-point line. Coach Shane Stacy said his team’s lack of defense that half was the difference in the game.

“We struggled to locate their shooters,” Stacy said. “And we struggled to get back on defense. It was a layup drill for them at times.”

Simran Parmar led the Trojans with 21 points, and Warren Utschinski had 10 points in his first career start.

Blaine 85, Mount Baker 84 – The Borderites led by eight with two minutes left and almost gave away a Northwest Conference win to the Mountaineers. With both teams in the bonus, they combined for 53 points in the fourth quarter. Benjamin Adams scored a game-high 27 points and sophomore Adam Vega scored four of his nine points in the fourth quarter.

Lynden 78, Burlington-Edison 51 – Christian Zamora made seven 3-pointers and scored a game-high 34 points in the Lions’ Northwest Conference win. Six-foot-7-inch junior Trey Labounty came off the bench and had 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Nooksack Valley 38, Friday Harbor 35 – David Flores led all scorers with 15 points to help give the Pioneers a nonleague win. Nooksack Valley led 23-9 at halftime but was outscored 26-15 in the second half.
