LYNDEN — Megan Friend had the only RBI for the Cubs (5-2 conference, 8-6 overall), who had trouble getting out of their own way against the Lions in a Northwest Conference loss.

Darrington Loggers 16, La Conner Braves 5 Five Innings
LA CONNER — Riley Banaszak hit a double and triple for the Braves, and Karris Drake added an inside-the-park home run for the Braves in the Northwest 2B League game.
