The Blaine girls varsity basketball team wanted to bounce back from two tough losses the previous week at their game against Anacortes on January 15.
Blaine trailed for most of the home game, but rallied in the third quarter and came within four points of Anacortes after Ashley Dickerson swished a three-pointer to make the score 36–32.
It looked like Blaine could come from behind to win, but Anacortes, outscored Blaine 10–2 in the fourth quarter.
Dickerson scored a team high of 16 points for the Borderites and Josie Deming scored six. Gabby Ronngren led Anacortes with 19 points. After the loss, Blaine’s record is 4–10 (0–7 in conference games).
The Borderites play next at 5:45 p.m. on Friday, January 19 at home against Sehome (7–7 overall).
