"We had a lot of practices to talk and figure things out leading up to this game. The goal was to come in and play hard for 32 minutes. We know they are a good team, good players and we just talked about coming in and just playing hard, having positive body language. We've had negative stuff last game against Everett, we needed to shake that, come out here and fight all game long," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Corby Schuh.

Three players led the Chargers as they competed throughout the entire game. Senior, Zackery Doll and freshman, Cameron Stordahl, led the team with six points each. Doll finished with a pair of threes while Stordahl capitalized on his range by hitting a three of his own. The last player to significantly contribute was sophomore, Caleb Koellmer, as he hit the last three for the Chargers and finished with five points.

If you want to catch the next local game for the Marysville Getchell Chargers, they will be traveling to Marysville-Pilchuck High School to face the Tomahawks on Friday, Jan. 27, at 7:15 p.m.
