Lynden holds Sultan in check in 35-7 win

LYNDEN — Lynden running back Trent Postma ran 17 times for 108 yards and a score and the Lions’ defense held Sultan in check in a 35-7 victory over the Turks in a 2A bi-district playoff game at Lynden H.S. on Friday night.

“Our defense has just been nails all season,” Lynden coach Curt Kramme said. “(Sultan) is about the third or fourth Wing-T team we’ve seen this season, so we’re pretty well-versed in it.”

Coming out of halftime trailing 14-0, Sultan drove to Lynden’s 11-yard line, thanks in part to a 35-yard pass from Deion Bonillia to James McKenzie. But Lynden’s Jacob Boland made sure to keep Sultan off the scoreboard with an interception in the end zone. Lynden would go on to score three unanswered touchdowns to put the game out of reach.

Sultan lone score came on a trick play late in the fourth quarter. Turks running back Antonio Rivas took the snap and passed to a wide open Deion Bonilla, who had lined up next to the Lynden sideline with nobody covering him and ran the ball all the way in for the 49-yard touchdown reception.
