The Arlington Eagles girls basketball team welcomed the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks to their home floor on Jan. 25.

The Eagles got off to a fast start as they scored 17 points in the first quarter while only allowing two points to the Tomahawks. With a stout defense and consistent offensive game Arlington kept on rolling the rest of the way, never losing the lead. They finished on top of Marysville-Pilchuck with a final score of 50-32.

"We're trying to be consistent, that's one of the things we are constantly working on and we talked about it before the game. Consistency of effort, consistency of execution and that will allow us to not have those letdowns. We got that lead early, wanted to keep it and tried to extend it if we could," said Arlington Head Coach Joe Marsh.

Arlington's Peyton Brown had an absolutely dominant performance as she scored 19 points to lead her team to a victory. Brown shot 50 percent from the floor and went five for nine from beyond the three point line. The second highest scorer on the Eagles was Kelsey Mellick as she put up nine points through three quarters of play.

Olivia Lee led the Tomahawks as they attempted to come back from their first quarter setback. She outscored every other Marysville-Pilchuck player as she dropped nine points on an efficient four for six from the floor.

"I tell them in the locker room all the time, that this is who we got right now for the next couple of years. Of course, there are a few here and there that will end up leaving and graduating but you know they have to realize reinforcements aren't coming. They need to grow as a group, put time in the offseason and improve on the things we need to improve on," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.
