Squalicum rides fast start to win over Burlington in boys basketball

Host Squalicum took a 23-11 lead after the first quarter and sailed to a 63-41 Northwest Conference win over Burlington-Edison on Tuesday.

The Storm forced 21 turnovers and allowed just 14 second-half points. Squalicum coach Dave Dickson said his team was in the right spots defensively.

“The defense carried us tonight,” he said. “It was a good team effort.”

Damek Mitchell had a game-high 22 points but wasn’t his usual prolific self in other categories, adding six rebounds and three assists. His brother, freshman Dedrick Mitchell, scored all six of his points in the fourth quarter.

Lynden 70, Blaine 53 – Andrew Kivlighn and Christian Zamora had 14 points each to lead the host Lions to a Northwest Conference win. Benjamin Adams had a game-high 25 points for the Borderites, who were outscored by 10 points in the first quarter and 11 in the third.

Sehome 66, Lakewood 51 – Four players scored in double figures for the host Mariners in their Northwest Conference win. Eddy Hochsprung had a game-high 19 points, Logan Deboo scored 15 and Logan Lyall and Marcus Montag had 10 each for Sehome.
