The Marysville Getchell girls basketball team welcomed the Lynnwood Royals onto their home floor on Feb. 1.

The game started out slow as both teams looked like they couldn't find their groove. Marysville Getchell started off a little slower as they fell behind by two points to the Royals, 11-9.

However, in the second quarter everything changed. The Chargers couldn't get their shots to drop while the Royals began to hit from all over the court and dominate on the defensive end. By halftime, Lynnwood extended their lead to 32-17.

In the second half the Chargers started to get back into form as they battled inside to draw fouls and get to the line. With a combination of rebounding dominance and ball movement, the Chargers outscored Lynnwood in both of the last two quarters. However, it was not enough to come back as Lynnwood closed it out with a score of 57-47.

The Chargers' Carley Wika kicks out for the open corner three against the Royals at Marysville Getchell High School on Feb. 1.

"It's huge to have confidence, especially heading into the postseason. My teams have always been fighters since the moment I stepped on this court and took over this job. They have hearts of gold and they will fight and claw and scrape for their teammates. They are a very close-knit group, are positive with each other and they never say die. That's more than any coach can ask for," said MG Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Maddy Grandbois had a dominate performance on both sides of the ball for the Chargers. She finished second on her team with 14 points, grabbed a game-high 20 rebounds, four steals, eight assists and two blocks.

Her older sister, Gabby Grandbois, led the team with 19 points while adding eight rebounds, nine assists and six steals.

Carley Wika ended up third in most points, with five, and grabbed 13 rebounds.
