Second-half surge propels Mount Baker over Lambrick Park

It was a tale of two halves for Mount Baker in an 86-68 nonleague win over visiting Lambrick Park on Tuesday.

Mount Baker trailed by two at the end of the first and second quarters but broke open the game in the second half, scoring 50 points. The Mountaineers went on a 7-0 run to start the third quarter and pulled away thanks to TJ Bass, who had nine of his 17 points in the period. Baker also made six of its eight 3-pointers in the second half.

“We went on a 7-0 run to start the third and (Lambrick Park) began to wear down a little bit,” coach Rob Gray said. “Our defensive pressure and our ability to beat the zone wore them down.”

Yakima West Valley 45, Sehome 44 – The host Mariners lost a nonleague game to the Rams.

Ferndale 69, Snohomish 58 – The Golden Eagles shot 78 percent in the first half in a nonleague win over host Snohomish. Ferndale’s Riley Hunt had 21 of his game-high 29 points in the first half.
