Lynden’s athletes coast to victory over Meridian in boys basketball

Lynden’s length and athleticism was too much for Meridian as the Lions earned a 67-31 Northwest Conference win on Friday.

Six-foot-4 sophomore forward Christian Zamora led all scorers with 17 points, and 6-foot-6 forward Trevin Hope finished with 10 points.

“Their length made it difficult for us to open up passing lanes and get clear shots,” Meridian coach Shane Stacy said. “They are great athletes and well coached.”

Zac Kinney led all Trojan players with seven points.

Lummi 67, Lopez 13 – Lummi held Lopez scoreless in the first quarter, which set the tempo for the rest of the game. Only two players scored for Lopez due to Lummi’s defense, especially that of Keegan Jojola and Shawn Diggs. Trazil Lane had a game-high 19 points to lead the Blackhawks.

Anacortes 67, Sehome 42 – Anacortes led 43-12 at halftime as Sehome couldn’t beat the Seahawks’ pressure defense. The third quarter was Sehome’s best as the Mariners scored 21 points, with three 3-pointers by Eddy Hochsprung. Sehome’s Marcus Montag finished with a team-high 16 points.

Mount Baker 69, Sedro-Woolley 50 – Grant Balvanz made four 3-pointers as he scored a game-high 22 points to lead the Mountaineers. Davis Michelich had 20 points for Sedro-Woolley, but Mount Baker’s press defense ensured the Mountaineers won each quarter. Baker led by 20 at one point in the fourth quarter thanks to strong post play by TJ Bass.
