The Marysville-Pilchuck girls soccer team took on the Arlington Eagles at Quil Ceda Stadium on Oct. 24.

Coming into the matchup the Eagles were heavy favorites as they were undefeated with a record of 10-0-1 and the Tomahawks held a record of 5-3-3. After the first half, both defenses lived up to the hype with a score of 0-0. However, in the 51st minute the Eagles scored on a penalty kick and looked like they would hold off Marysville-Pilchuck the rest of the way. Then the Tomahawks got a late score from a corner kick in the 72nd minute and finished it off with a penalty kick in overtime. Marysville-Pilchuck stopped the Eagles with a score of 2-1.

"We have to win this game for our seeding. So, that's the first thing we have to worry about, is where we are going to finish. We just approached it like a normal game and came out with the W. It's a team effort. I wouldn't say there is one person who has done more than anyone else. So, that's what's really special about these girls, is that they win and lose as a team," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley.

Kristen Phillips scored the lone goal for the Eagles on a penalty kick early in the second half of play. However, the defense is what carried the Eagles for most of the game. After the injury to Tahlia Miears, from a week ago, the backline stepped up and played great defense while the keeper, Brielle Schrader, racked up 12 saves.

Jessica Moskowitz finished off the game for the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks after she nailed the penalty kick in the second overtime. Defense played a big part for the Tomahawks, with the anchor, Hanna Koehn, sophomore keeper, as she had 5 saves and worked with her back line against Arlington's 22 shots on goal.

"The goal was to keep everybody healthy and try to get out of here without anybody getting hurt. I was a little disappointed with how crazy it was, but I also wanted to get some other girls some experience before playoffs. Someone is going to have to step up, we're probably going to need somebody, so that was another really important part of this one," said Arlington Head Coach Nathan Davis.

After Marysville-Pilchuck's 1-0 loss to Lynnwood on Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Tomahawks season is over and they will look to improve for next year. Arlington is still in the hunt for a State Title after the Eagles beat Lynnwood 4-1 on Saturday, Oct. 29.
