Chargers pummel Seagulls

Marysville Getchell's Gabrielle Grandbois pokes the ball away and chases down the loose ball for a steal against Everett at Marysville Getchell High School on Jan. 11.

On Jan. 11, the Marysville Getchell girls basketball team took on the Everett Seagulls in what would turn out to be a blowout.

The Chargers got off to a fast start as they multiplied Everett's first quarter by five, leading by a score of 15-3. Marysville Getchell rained threes and displayed incredible chemistry, finding the open shooter every time down the court. By the end of the first half the Seagulls had fallen behind by more than double their score, 26-9.

The second half was more of the same as the Chargers rolled through the Seagulls. From the starters through the bench each player contributed at a high level in order to more than double Everett's score. Marysville Getchell finished off their blowout with a score of 60-27.

"We've got to work the ball. We've got to get used to that pace of running it down to about 10 and then making a play. Our threes were working tonight, but we don't want to rely on that. We need to work backside and get a two, or a three if it's open. When confidence is up everything goes well, but we need to be ready for when it's down," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Senior point guard, Gabrielle Grandbois could not miss against the porous Everett defense. She took over for the Chargers as she hit six threes and two midrange shots for a game-high 22 points. The next highest scorer, Trisha Mortenson, came off the bench to drop nine points, eight of which were in the fourth.

Overall, it was an incredible team effort by the Chargers as nine different players all managed to score during the game.

If you want to check out the Chargers' next home game, they will be matching up with the Meadowdale Mavericks on Friday, Jan. 20, at 7:15 p.m.
