Lions rebound from rough start, slam Cubs

It took some time for Lynden’s boys’ basketball team to get into the swing of the game, but once it did the Lions had an offensive outburst for 53 points in their 60-46 win over Sedro-Woolley on Friday, Dec. 19, at Sedro-Woolley.

“It looked like two teams who still had their football legs,” Lynden coach Brian Roper said in a phone interview. “It didn’t have much flow to the game, but in the fourth we were able to get out and run. It took us awhile to get the ball inside and use that to our advantage.”

Lynden scored just seven points in the first quarter, but came back with 19, 15 and 19 to finish the game. Sterling Somers led the Lions with 19 points, Scooter Hastings had 12 and a team-high 17 rebounds, and Jordan Wittenberg added 11 points.

“Jordan did a good job on (Sedro-Woolley star guard Jackson) Price. He had an off shooting night, but Jordan did a nice job being there most of the night on him,” Roper said.

Lynden takes King’s at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, at King’s in Shoreline.
