Blaine boys basketball fought hard in the second half to get a 64–62 comeback victory against head coach Brett Farrar’s former team, Sedro-Woolley.
After the win, the Borderites have a 3–4 record in conference games, and a 9–5 record overall. Sedro-Woolley is 6–8 (1–6 in conference games).
Blaine’s shots weren’t falling in the first half at Sedro-Woolley and after two quarters the Cubs led by 14 points. That changed in the second half, as Kyle Turnberg hit three three-pointers in a row. Bailey Bleazard and Cole Thomas also hit key shots in third quarter, Farrar said.
Blaine started the fourth quarter down 49–40, but went on a 12-2 run to take the lead. From there, Blaine kept its lead with Zane Rector and Josh Russ controlling the Borderites offense.
Rector led Blaine in scoring with 25, and 21 of those points in Blaine’s big second half. Turnberg scored 15 and Russ had 12.
“Our guys remained calm and they did a really nice job. It was a good, tough hard-fought road victory,” Farrar said.
Next, the Borderites host Mount Baker (3–11, 0–7 overall) at 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, January 23.
