M-P's Olivia Lee drives hard through the lane as she goes in for the contested lay up at Marysville-Pilchuck on Jan. 18.

The Marysville-Pilchuck girls basketball team took on the Everett Seagulls in a hotly contested matchup on Jan. 17.

The Tomahawks and the Seagulls entered the game with winless records in league play. Both came into the game battling hard for that first league win of the season. After the first quarter, both teams remained tied at 8-8. The Tomahawks came out in the second quarter and they took a quick lead before letting it slide as they ended the first half on top, 16-15.

The second half continued that run as the Tomahawks failed to pull away from Everett for the rest of the game. With a quick run in the last three minutes, the Seagulls pulled away by a few points to end the game. Marysville-Pilchuck ended up losing by a score of 43-39.

"We came out in the second playing with more effort and more enthusiasm. I thought we were pretty lackadaisical in the first half in terms of cutting and in pressure. It just looked like we were out there but not playing with a purpose. I kept stressing that this was a winnable basketball game, we're at home, the crowd is good, the atmosphere is there and we needed to come out fired up like we want to win a basketball game," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.

Marysville-Pilchuck's duo of guards took control of the game for the Tomahawks. Starting junior point guard Olivia Lee hit a trio of three pointers on her way to a 13-point game. The only freshman on the roster, Mackensie Connelly, hit a team-high 14 points as she went almost perfect from the line, going five for six.

If you want to attend the next Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawk's home game they will be playing the Marysville Getchell Chargers on Thursday, Jan. 26, at 7:15 p.m.
