The outcome had been decided well before the rains came in the fourth quarter of Lynden’s 35-12 victory over Blaine on Friday at Blaine High School.
Thanks to the efforts of quarterback James Marsh, the Lions improved to 3-3 on the season. Marsh rushed for three touchdowns and added two passing touchdowns as well.
“He played a near perfect game,” Lynden coach Blake VanDalen said. “He was probably the key to the whole thing.”
VanDalen said he was happy for his team because they finally had something to show for their hard work.

When the rains came at the end of the game, VanDalen said he told his team to focus on not turning the ball over. In the end, Lynden forced more turnovers than the lone interception thrown by Marsh.
