Meridian’s Pagnossin makes most of varsity basketball opportunity

With a number of regulars unavailable for the holidays, the Meridian boys basketball team turned to its bench to beat Bear Creek 57-47 during the second day of the Cloud 9 Christmas Classic on Wednesday at Lynden.

Trevor Pagnossin, mainly a junior varsity player this season, scored 18 of the 28 points by the Trojans’ reserves.

“We cycled through guys to see who could bring it,” Meridian coach Shane Stacy said. “Trevor brought it, and he never came out. He played well at both ends.”

Meridian outscored Bear Creek 21-4 in the fourth quarter to rally from a seven-point deficit. The Trojans got 11 points from Camden Burgess and 10 from Tyler Linderman, and Stacy said TJ Dykstra held Bear Creek’s top scorer without a point in the second half.

Edmonds-Woodway 78, Ferndale 51 – The Golden Eagles led by one at halftime but “couldn’t hit the side of a wall” in the second half, according to coach Jason Owens. Sequoyah Julius had 16 points to lead Ferndale. Keaton McKay of Edmonds-Woodway led all scorers with 25 points.

Squalicum 58, Woodinville 48 – Damek Mitchell had a game-high 20 points to help lead the Storm to a win in the Sterling Shootout Tournament. Mitchell was named tourney MVP, and Kendall Engelhart finished with 12 points and was named to the All-Tournament team.

Lummi 65, Tulalip Heritage 31 – In the second game on back-to-back nights, the Blackhawks showed no signs of wear to earn their third consecutive win. Senior Trazil Lane returned from injury and scored six points, and Free Borsey had a game-high 12 points.

Life Christian Academy 70, Blaine 55 – The visiting Borderites lost to the host Eagles.

West Seattle 66, Sehome 36 – The host Mariners lost to the visiting Wildcats.
