How would the Meridian boys bounce back from a tough loss in their last game?

After a disappointing loss Thursday, the Meridian boys basketball team bounced back Friday to earn a 70-39 Northwest Conference win over visiting Blaine.

“It says a lot about these guys to be able to rebound after last night’s loss,” Meridian coach Shane Stacy said.

The Trojans were coming off of a 71-65 non-league loss to Overlake Thursday. Zac Kinney had 21 points in Friday’s game to lead Meridian.

Adam Vega recorded a team-high 15 points for the Borderites.

Boys’ results

Squalicum 61, Bellingham 56 – The visiting Storm trailed by six at halftime but used a huge fourth quarter to earn a Northwest Conference and Cross Town Rivalry win over Bellingham. Squalicum outscored Bellingham 21-11 in the fourth quarter thanks to nine points by Devante’ Powell. Rits Voeut finished with a team-high 14 points for the Red Raiders.

Lakewood 67, Nooksack Valley 58 – Casey Bauman’s team-high 28 points weren’t enough as the host Pioneers dropped a Northwest Conference game. “We didn’t get the result we wanted but we never stopped competing,” Nooksack Valley coach Rich Skillman said. “There are lots of things we can take away from a game like this.”

Girls’ results

Ferndale 53, Sedro-Woolley 36 – There has been one theme during the Ferndale girls’ five-game, league play winning streak: Defense. The Golden Eagles displayed it again Friday, only allowing 36 points against the Cubs. Ferndale’s two frontcourt starters, Kim Weden and Emma Hindes, led the way with 15 and 11 points respectively.

Burlington-Edison 54, Mount Baker 51 – Burlington’s Afton Field scored 10 of her team-high 15 points in the fourth quarter to help the Tigers beat the host Mountaineers.

Lynden 53, Sehome 38 – The visiting Lions earned a Northwest Conference win over the host Mariners.
