Ferndale girls basketball wins rebound battle, beats Bellingham

Ferndale won the rebound battle 55-30 to earn a 64-38 Northwest Conference win at Bellingham on Friday.

The Golden Eagles led by only four at halftime but got physical with the Red Raiders and out-muscled them on the boards. Ferndale secured 27 offensive rebounds.

“We hung in there in the first half,” Bellingham coach Mark Wright said. “Then their physicality wore us down and they outscored us.”

Nicole Guessford and Gabby Edison led the Golden Eagles with 12 points. Lindsey Richard had a team-high 11 points for the Red Raiders.

Lopez 58, Lummi 48 (OT) – The host Blackhawks forced Lopez to overtime but didn’t score in the extra period. Lummi trailed 24-16 at halftime after struggling to beat Lopez’s 1-2-2 zone defense but used a different approach in the second half to outscore the Lobos 32-24. The Blackhawks overloaded one side of the court, which helped Rian Rosilo score a team-high 16 points.

Lynden Christian 63, Nooksack Valley 43 – The host Lyncs, led by Avery Dykstra’s 22 points, earned their 10th win of the season. Dykstra made nine field goals, including two 3-pointers, and was 2 of 2 from the free-throw line. Katrina Gimmaka led the Pioneers with 21 points.

Squalicum 43, Blaine 31 – Visiting Squalicum was 6 of 6 from the 3-point line in the first quarter to jump out to a 23-8 lead. Chalae Wolters led all scorers with 13 points and was active on defense for the Storm. Brynn Hallberg and Ashley Dickerson led Blaine with nine points each.
