Marysville Getchell's Cody Day dives for the huge reception late in the game against Arlington at Quil Ceda Stadium on Sept. 16.

On Sept. 16, the Marysville Getchell football team hosted the Arlington Eagles in a game of ups and downs.

Early on Arlington took a commanding lead, dominating in all facets of the game, leading to a score of 21-0. However, the Chargers came back firing as they scored 20 points in the second quarter while allowing one more touchdown for a halftime score of 28-20. In the second half Arlington managed to pull away as their defense shut down Marysville Getchell to a final score of 47-26.

"Their defense is basically set up to take away the pass and you have to run up the middle. You've got to be patient with it and you have to learn to take your shots at certain points. It definitely slows you down and makes you grind it out. That's why we felt our best shot was to attack with the run instead of the pass like we had done the past couple of weeks," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Davis Lura.

Marysville Getchell's offense was strapped to the back of their running back Gage Thomas, as he racked up over 150 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. On the defensive end, Zachary Townsend caused havoc as he brought the pressure with three sacks and a fumble recovery. Garrett Allan and Michael Stewart also contributed with an interception and a pick six, respectively.

Arlington's Devon Nutter jumps to break away from Marysville Getchell defenders at Quil Ceda Stadium on Sept. 16.

Arlington had stat machines as they scored 47 points against the Chargers. Starting quarterback, Campbell Hudson threw for two touchdowns and grabbed one receiving. He threw his two scores to Jaren Carey, who also had a fumble recovery touchdown, and Jack Sheward. The other two key offensive weapons were Gabe Green and Devon Nutter. Green rushed for a touchdown and connected with Hudson for a touchdown with his only pass of the game. Nutter rushed for over 100 yards and picked up three touchdowns. The Eagles' defense picked up four interceptions produced by Payton Bastien, Tanner Edmondson, Joey Stretch and Wyatt Hawthorne. Hawthorne led the defensive unit with the Eagles' lone pick six and a PAT block.

"It's a lot of fun. Campbell could be our starting receiver if he wasn't our best quarterback. It was fun to get out there and throw the ball. Gabe Green, our middle linebacker, had that wildcat package where he got to throw that touchdown. He has a great arm. We've got some guys with talent, they're young and just getting better. It's going to be a fun year," said Arlington's Head Coach Greg Dailer on the versatility of his players.
