It seemed like there was a lid on the basket in the first half of Lynden’s game

What started out as a glacial pace to the game ended with a Lynden victory as the host Lions earned a 49-35 Northwest Conference win over visiting Mount Baker Tuesday.

Neither team scored more than 10 points in the first quarter, and the Mountaineers followed their 8-point first quarter with a 4-point second.

“It seemed like there was a rebounding ring on the basket in the first half,” Lynden coach Brian Roper said.

In the second half, Lynden’s offense turned back on thanks to junior Christian Zamora, who finished with a game-high 14 points.

Mount Baker’s Carter Backstrom recorded a team-high nine points.
