Charger freshman, Ethan Jackson, scores the contested lay up against Tomahawks' Raequan Battle at Marysville Getchell High School on Dec. 10.

The rivalry game between Marysville Getchell boys basketball and Marysville-Pilchuck took place on Dec. 10, on the Chargers' home floor.

In the first quarter the Chargers got off to a fast start scoring 15 points, while holding the Tomahawks to seven. With a lockdown defense early on, the Chargers were looking like the team to beat in the big-time matchup. However, over the next three quarters Marysville-Pilchuck took over on both sides of the ball, outscoring Getchell by a score of 50-26. The Tomahawks walked away from the first league game, and rivalry game, with a victory and a score of 57-41.

"It's a rivalry game and so there is more riding on this thing than just any other regular season game. A lot of it is nerves and getting settled in. I like that the game plan is still upstairs so we could talk about everything we did and didn't do going into the second half. Be patient offensively, switch zones and everything else. So, in the second half we executed our game plan and, of course Raequan hit some big shots," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Bary Gould.

Marysville-Pilchuck was led by two double-digit scorers who contributed on both sides of the ball. The first was no surprise, as Raequan Battle went off for 26 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and a steal. The second was Corbin Sims as he scored 18 points and added six rebounds, one block and three steals. The freshman guard, Luke Dobler, also filled up the stat sheet as he put up five points, six assists, six rebounds, one block and three steals.

M-P's Corbin Sims hits a free throw for one of his 18 Tomahawk points at Marysville Getchell High School on Dec. 10.

"Our team has been battling consistency all year. We'll have a good quarter and then we'll have a couple of quarters where we are struggling to hit shots. Part of it is just taking care of the basketball, we are turning it over a little too much. Add that on top of not being able to hit for a couple of quarters and that's where you end up. They pressured us on defense, but for the most part it didn't change. We have to do a better job of getting inside and getting some easy buckets," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Corby Schuh.

The electric freshman, Cameron Stordahl, led Marysville Getchell with nine points, four rebounds, one assist and four steals. He was all over the court and put up the most shot attempts for his team with 11. Another freshman, Ethan Jackson, and junior, Ian Roskelley, also contributed for the Chargers. Roskelley put up seven points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block. Jackson added on six more points from the paint and six rebounds.

If you want to catch the next Marysville-Pilchuck home game they will be going against the Stanwood Spartans on Friday, Dec. 16, at 7:15 p.m. Or, if you want to see the Chargers for their next home game, they will be playing the Squalicum Storm on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m.
