Meridian holds off feisty Lakewood in boys basketball

Host Meridian had its hands full against a young, scrappy Lakewood team but used clutch free throws in the fourth quarter to earn a 68-56 Northwest Conference win Tuesday.

The Trojans made 7 of 10 free throws in the fourth quarter, when they outscored Lakewood 14-12. Meridian coach Shane Stacy said he was impressed with Lakewood’s resilience.

“Lakewood is going to be good,” Stacy said. “They attacked us hard. They rebounded us hard. They are going to give people some problems, if not this year then next year.”

Camden Burgess led Meridian with 22 points.

Lummi 74, Tulalip Heritage 36 – Trazil Lane had 23 points to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a win. Lummi led 24-3 after the first quarter and 42-12 at halftime. Lummi also beat Tulalip Heritage 65-31 on Dec. 28.

Lynden 70, Sedro-Woolley 54 – Christian Zamora had 25 points and Andrew Kivlighn 23 to help the visiting Lions to a Northwest Conference win. Lynden coach Brian Roper said it’s always good to get a road win in the Northwest Conference, and he praised his players for having a lot of energy and “hitting the glass hard.”

Ferndale 62, Burlington-Edison 54 – Sequoyah Julius had 29 points in the visiting Golden Eagles’ Northwest Conference victory. Julius made 6 of 7 3-point attempts and shot 10 for 12 overall. Ferndale sank 16 of 18 free throws.

Anacortes 71, Blaine 27 – The visiting Seahawks steamrolled the Borderites in a Northwest Conference game. Anacortes led 42-12 at halftime. Jesse Keltner led the Seahawks with 19 points. Anthony Ball had 10 points for Blaine.
