Marysville-Pilchuck's playoff run came to an end on Tuesday night's football game against Ferndale High School. Ferndale took the victory with a 49-20 win on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and moved forward in the playoffs.

"Ferndale was a big and physical team that created some problems on both sides of the ball," Marysville-Pilchuck head coach Brandon Carson said following the game.

Ferndale's defense dominated on Tuesday, keeping Marysville from gaining first downs, which lead to their lack of touchdown opportunities. The first quarter saw equal play with back and forth touchdowns for both teams. Austin Honeycutt and Justice Powell scored in the first quarter for Ferndale High School. Junior Jacob Carr and senior Jesse Thompson scored Marysville-Pilchuck's first two touchdowns of the evening. Marysville was unable to make the kick following Thompson's touchdown, and trailed Ferndale by one point leading into the second quarter.

Marysville struggled offensively mid-game against the Ferndale defense, and was unable to score a touchdown in the second and third quarters. Unable to get first downs, Marysville suffered multiple turnovers that Ferndale took advantage of to score four touchdowns. Ferndale's Cole Semu scored two back-to-back touchdowns, which were followed by a touchdown by James Hinson before Semu's third touchdown of the evening.

Austin Honeycutt had his second touchdown of the evening for Ferndale in the beginning of the fourth quarter. After Ferndale's six-touchdown streak, Marysville sophomore Justin Trueax scored the last touchdown of the evening, putting the final score at 49-20.

Marysville-Pilchuck's Tuesday night game was a quick turnaround following their previous Thursday night game on Oct. 29. "I thought our kids competed well given the short amount of time to prepare," coach Carson said after their Tuesday game.

Tuesday's game ended Marysville-Pilchuck's 2015 season. The team ended the season 4-6 overall.
