Lyncs open with a convincing win

The Lynden Christian football team opened its 2014 campaign with a 45-6 win over Omak on Friday, Sept. 5, in Omak in a non-conference game.

The Lyncs opened up quickly, coach Galen Kaemingk said, following a fast touchdown and a bad snap by Omak, giving Lynden Christian strong field position.

“That gave us a short field, and we were able to get a couple scores,” Kaemingk said in a phone interview.

While Kaemingk said he kept the offense pretty simple, trying not to burden his players with “too much too early,” he was happy with the efficiency of the group, especially quarterback Lucas Roetcisoender.

“He had a nice night throwing the ball. He made some really nice throws,” Kaemingk said. “A couple three-set drops, put it on the far sideline. He had a real nice game.”

Lynden Christian hosts Sultan at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12, trying to continue the season unbeaten.
