This Lynden boys basketball player had a career-high in points off the bench

The Lynden boys basketball team used the middle quarters to pull away from Burlington-Edison and earn a 57-38 Northwest Conference win Monday at Lynden High School.

The Lions held the Tigers to just two points in the second quarter and outscored Burlington 20-11 in the third. Kobe Elsner, Blake Silves and Brock Heppner all were disruptive in the passing lanes during the third quarter.

“That really sparked us,” Lynden coach Brian Roper said. “Those deflections created easy baskets for us which allowed us to extend the lead.”

Silves came off the bench and finished with a career-high 15 points which paced Lynden. The Lions also out-rebounded Burlington by 14.
