Mount Baker girls overcome slow start to win at Mountlake Terrace tournament

Kylind Powell came off the bench to score 11 points and help the Mount Baker girls basketball team to a 48-34 win over Liberty during the first day of the Mountlake Terrace Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

“She gave us an offensive spark,” Mountaineers coach Kim Preston said. “She got a couple of big offensive rebound putbacks.”

Stephanie Soares scored 17 points for Mount Baker, which overcame a slow start.

“We played our alumni game on Tuesday, but this was our first real game back,” Preston said. “It felt that way, and we were a little shaky at the start. But I’m proud of how competitive we remained into the fourth quarter.”

Nooksack Valley 58, Neah Bay 28 – The Pioneers showed little rust in their first game back from break as they toppled Neah Bay. Rachel Sande led Nooksack Valley with 16 points, and Katrina Gimmaka scored 11.

La Conner 54, Bellingham 33 – Bellingham trailed by four at halftime, but a 20-2 third quarter by La Conner spelled doom for the Red Raiders on the first day of the Crush in the Slush Tournament in Port Townsend. Susie Bennett was the only Bellingham player to crack double-digit scoring with 10 points.

Blaine 34, Vashon Island 25 – The Borderites’ Brynn Hallberg was the only player to record double-digit points with 10. Blaine led by one at halftime but then outscored Vashon Island 11-5 in the third quarter.

Sehome 41, Friday Harbor 15 – The Mariners played solid defense to stifle Friday Harbor during the Crush in the Slush Tournament. Sarah Eisess had a game-high 12 points and added five rebounds.
