The Marysville Getchell boys basketball team welcomed the Arlington Eagles to their home floor on Jan. 3.

Throughout the first half both teams battled back and forth as the lead shifted constantly. Powered by big-time threes and drawing fouls, both teams never stretched the lead by more than seven points. After getting to the line on back-to-back possessions, the Arlington Eagles finished the first half with a score of 35-28 over the Chargers.

The second half was a different story as Arlington dominated on both sides of the ball. The Eagles outmuscled the Chargers as they seemed to grab every offensive and defensive rebound. In the end, Arlington finished on top of the Chargers by a score of 82-58.

"We need to follow our game plan. Our plan was to come in and get the big guys going early. We didn't use our size. We didn't execute the plan and we need to be more disciplined," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Corby Schuh.

The Chargers' trio of guards, Cameron Stordahl, Cody Day and Ian Roskelley took control for Marysville Getchell. Sordahl led the trio with 15 points, while also adding one rebound to his total. Day tied with Roskelley for second in points with 10 while grabbing five rebounds and four assists. Roskelley led the game in steals with four, and led the Chargers with six rebounds.

"It's great to come out and get the win. These kids are working hard and everything is starting to fall into place. The one thing is bringing it for all four quarters. I need to get through to them that we need to play at our best the whole game. We didn't show up in the first, and against teams we play two or three quarters won't be enough," said Arlington Head Coach Nick Brown.

Anthony Whitis and Drew Bryson took over for the Arlington Eagles throughout the entire matchup. Whitis finished with a game-high 21 points, while shooting 8-for-11, grabbing six rebounds, an assist and a steal. Bryson finished right behind him with 20 points, a game-high 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal.
