Tomahawks' Olivia Lee, No. 20, guards Cascades' point guard at the top of the arc, at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Dec. 6.

The Marysville-Pilchuck girls basketball team faced the Cascade Bruins on the Tomahawks' home court on Dec. 6.

From tip-off, the matchup looked close as the Tomahawks and Bruins got off to a slow start, with a score of 7-2. In the second quarter Marysville-Pilchuck got a huge spark from sophomore Ivy Enberg as she hit a three and a midrange shot for five quick points, finishing the first half down 16-11.

The second half was a back-and-forth display as Marysville fought for every bucket against the towering Bruin defense. Bringing the score to within four, in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, the Tomahawks looked like they could pull out an upset. However, Cascade held off Marysville-Pilchuck for a final score of 32-28.

"The excitement of seeing the ball go through the hoop, I think right now we're the type of team that needs to see some shots go down before we believe we are able to play the game of basketball. I think we are playing up to the competition we go against, but a lot of it has to do with confidence. I think it's confidence first, and then we don't look to score enough. We move the ball great, but don't take the shot when it's given to us," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.

Marysville did a great job moving the ball around as six different players were able to score throughout the game. Dominique Jenkins led the Tomahawks with six points, off of two second half threes. Three other players put up five points including Enberg, Mackenzie Konsor and Olivia Lee. The last two scorers were Alexandra Grimm with four and Hanna Koehn with three.

If you want to catch the next home game for the Tomahawks they will be playing against the Squalicum Storm on Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 7:15 p.m.
