Mariners fall victim to Cubs’ foul shooting

The Sehome boys’ basketball team could only watch as the Cubs knocked down three free throws with no time on the clock to win 61-58 on Tuesday, Dec. 23, at Sehome High School.

The Mariners were ahead by three points before the Cubs tied it with 15 seconds left, stole the ball and then got fouled on a 3-point shot. The foul on the final possession was nothing new to the game, as the Mariners got called for 22 fouls in the game, allowing 30 Sedro-Woolley foul shots.

“We had our chances to win it,” Sehome coach AJ Labree said in a phone interview. “I’m not going to put it on that. We allowed too many offensive rebounds.”

Sehome (6-3, 2-0 NWC) was led by Leif Anderson and Leighton Kingma, who each had 19 points. The Cubs got 17-point efforts from Jackson Price and Will Enniss while Chad Wilberg chipped in 16.

The Mariners hit the hardwood again for the Cloud 9 Christmas Classic on Dec. 29 at Lynden Christian High School, where they will face South Whidbey.
