Lynden Christian knew Squalicum can shoot from deep; how would it contain the Storm?

The Lynden Christian girls basketball team turned its stifling defense into offense Wednesday night as the host Lyncs earned a 70-36 Northwest Conference win over the visiting Storm.

“I was proud of our defensive effort,” Lynden Christian coach Brady Bomber said. “They’re (Squalicum) a team capable of making a lot of 3’s so we tried to contest shots.”

The contested shots led to defensive rebounds which fueled the undefeated Lyncs’ transition game. Isabela Hernandez had a team-high 14 points, and Josie Bocci scored 12 points off the bench.

Chalae Wolters finished with a game-high 18 points for Squalicum.
