Soccer and volleyball pick up back-to-back losses, Lynden Christian game canceled


Blaine High School’s girls soccer and volleyball teams lost consecutive games this past week, while positive Covid-19 cases for the Borderites and opponents caused changes to the football schedule.


Due to a positive Covid-19 case in the ranks, a group of the boys were forced to quarantine through last week and the team had to cancel its last two games.

The team was scheduled to play rival Lynden Christian at home Friday, October 1, but with Lynden Christian returning to remote learning this week, they were forced to cancel. The Borderites will instead travel to Archbishop Murphy in Everett Friday.

The boys are undefeated so far this season with a 3-0 record.

Girls soccer

Following a perfect 4-0 record to begin the season, the Lady Borderites picked up two losses over the past week.

After a nail-biting win over Oak Harbor September 21, the girls gave up two to Ferndale at home and were unable to find the net in response, losing 2-0. They then traveled to Bellingham September 28 to face the Squalicum Storm and lost 1-0.

Next, the girls host Lakewood Thursday, September 30, and Bellingham Tuesday, October 5. Both games start at 7 p.m.


The volleyball team is 2-4 following three straight losses. 

Last week, the Lady Borderites hosted Ferndale September 23 and lost in three straight sets to the Golden Eagles. They then traveled to Bellingham Tuesday night to face the Squalicum Storm.

After losing the first set 25-16, the girls came back to win the second narrowly, 26-24. But a strong team led by upperclassmen was too much for the sophomore-led Borderites. The Storm won the next two sets 25-21 and 25-13, taking the match. The Borderites were led by sophomore standouts Teya Zaddack, Deja Dube and Emersyn Bakker.

The team goes on to host Lakewood Thursday, September 30, and Bellingham Monday, October 4. Both matches start at 7 p.m.
