Lynden falls for first time this year

The Lynden girls’ soccer team suffered its first loss of the season at the hands of Sedro-Woolley 2-0 on Tuesday, Sept. 30, at Sedro-Woolley in a Northwest Conference matchup.

The Lions entered the game holding a 25-6 goal advantage, but couldn’t manage anything on offense against Sedro-Woolley, Lynden coach Carlos Melendez said.

“We haven’t really had a problem with that all season,” he said in a phone interview. “In the first half, we probably had two shots on goal. We weren’t working our spacing.”

Jacy Ammons’ goal in the 15th minute proved enough, but the Cubs’ Kena Webster added one for good measure in the 50th minute.

Defensively, Melendez praised the play of Lynden junior defender Cassidee Barclay.

“She played a great game with a ton of energy,” he said. “Nothing but positives.”

Lynden (5-1-3, NWC 3-1-1) hosts Meridian on Thursday, Oct. 2.
