High School Basketball

It was a first quarter to forget for Ferndale; would they turn things around?

The Ferndale girls basketball team was outscored 15-4 in the first quarter, but rallied back to earn a a 54-41 Northwest Conference home win over Mount Baker Friday.

The Golden Eagles held the Mountaineers to just nine points in the following three quarters while scoring 15, 16 and 19 points respectively. Rylee Weg led all scorers with 13 points while adding 12 rebounds.

“It was a little scary going down 19-4 at one point but I thought our defense stepped up,” Ferndale coach Mike Ivy said.

Mount Baker had 23 turnovers while Ferndale only committed 13.

Lynden Christian 77, Meridian 52 – The Lyncs shot 49 percent from the field and 52 percent from the 3-point line to earn a Northwest Conference road win. At halftime, Lynden Christian was shooting 10 for 18 from deep. “They’re a disciplined team that came out ready to shoot,” Meridian coach Shane Stacy said. “When they get hot, they get real hot.”

Nooksack Valley 50, Blaine 28 – Nooksack Valley held Blaine scoreless in the first quarter and carried that defensive intensity over for the rest of the game. The first seven points of the game came from the free-throw line so the Pioneers had to adjust and use their hands less. “These guys are working their tails off and it’s showing,” Nooksack Valley coach Rich Skillman said.

Sehome 61, Sedro-Woolley 59 – The host Mariners earned a Northwest Conference win over the Cubs. Sehome’s Austin Roberts hit a jumper at the top of the key as time expired to give Sehome the win.
