Arlington's junior point guard Josiah Gould uses his speed to break through the defense by Marysville Getchell's Cameron Stordahl at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Jan. 27.

One of the biggest rivalry games of the year happened on Jan. 27 as the Marysville Getchell boys basketball team went to Marysville-Pilchuck for their second matchup of the year.

From tipoff the crowd was roaring with each and every dribble up and down the court. Both teams scored back and forth as every incredible play was answered by another. Through the first quarter the Chargers gained a slight lead of 14-12, followed by a halftime score of 29-23.

The second half seemed to be more of the same as Marysville Getchell kept inching farther away, outscoring Marysville-Pilchuck by three in the third. As the fourth quarter started up the Tomahawks went off with a 7-0 run that put them back into the game. Both teams stayed close and it came down to a last-second three-point shot from the Chargers to tie. In the end Marysville Getchell couldn't hit the three and lost by a score of 61-58.

"It's a rivalry game. Records go out the window. These guys have grown up together and they know each other from little league so they are not intimidated by our record or our stats. This is a cross-town rivalry and it's big no matter what. They had different guys step up huge like Cameron Stordahl had a night, Caleb Koellmer came up big and all their bigs could catch and finish around the rim. Credit to their coaching staff for putting a great game plan together and executing it. At the end of the night it was one of those things where we had Raequan Battle and they didn't. Rae was the real difference in the second half," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Bary Gould.
