This Lynden sophomore hit the biggest shot of the Lions’ season so far

Ruby VanderHaak hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with two seconds left to help the Lynden girls basketball team earn a 59-58 Northwest Conference road win over Anacortes Thursday night.

VanderHaak led the Lions in scoring with 14 as Lynden rallied from a 9-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter. Lynden assistant coach Aaron Bogaard said Lynden was able to get a few stops and force turnovers which led to baskets down the stretch.

“It was nice to have the ball bounce our way at the end of a game,” Bogaard said.

Freshman Faith Baar continued her solid play with 12 points as she was a presence in the paint on both sides of the ball.

“She’s been so consistent for us,” Bogaard said. “Her being able to get boards and fill a hole in the middle has been a staple for us.”
