Girls declaw Lions 49-34

The Lady Falcon basketball team (15-7) won their second game in District One finals Friday night, decisively beating the Lynden Lions 49-34.

Their next challenge will be to take on the Burlington-Edison Tigers (17-5) Tuesday at Squalicum High School in Bellingham.

Coach John Pyrtek believes his team can win.

"They have a very talented post player and their guards are solid but young," he said.

"It should be a very even game. We will put points on the board but with the thin bench — Britta Madison having left the team and Marcella's injury — it will be a challenge to maintain the defensive solidarity we saw in the Shorecrest and Lynden fourth quarters."
