Mount Baker needed a big shot as time wound down; who would be the one to take it?

Kaleb Bass went coast-to-coast and made a layup with two seconds left to give visiting Mount Baker a 68-67 non-league win over Lakewood Tuesday.

Lakewood was shooting a 1-and-1 with seven seconds left but missed the first free-throw, leading to an Ethan Gates rebound and an outlet pass to Bass. It was the end of a wild fourth quarter in which the Mountaineers led by nine with five minutes left before the Cougars hit eight 3-pointers to eventually take the lead.

“Besides the eight threes we gave up, I thought we executed pretty well down the stretch,” Mount Baker coach Rob Gray said.

Other results

Bellingham 71, Blaine 39 – Bellingham’s pressure was too much for the visiting Borderites as the Red Raiders led 46-17 at halftime in a non-league win. The big lead at halftime let Bellingham rest some of its starters, but Colm Schaefer still finished with 15 points to lead the team. Hudson Reid had a team-high 14 points for Blaine.

Ferndale 59, Snohomish 56 – Sequoyah Julius was called upon to hit big shots at the end of the game and he did just that to give the host Golden Eagles a non-league win. Julius finished with 20 points to lead Ferndale in scoring, while James Hinson tallied 15 points. “It was a mysterious night for us,” Ferndale coach Mark Wright said. “We played in a kind of fog for most of the game but we put Sequoyah in a position to make plays and he did.”

Girls

Blaine 43, Bellingham 26 – The host Borderites secured 46 rebounds and decisively won the battle of the boards in a non-league win Tuesday. Josie Deming and Alexis Hallberg led the way on the glass but it was a team effort, according to Blaine coach Ryan Pike. “We got extra shots from our rebounds and held them to 1-and-done’s,” Pike said.

Lynden 49, Arlington 41 – Fourteen of Lynden’s 49 points came from three players off the bench in the host Lions’ non-league win. The bench helped Lynden be in a position to put the game away in the fourth quarter and Natalie Amos did just that. Amos had nine of her team-high 14 points in the final period.
