The Marysville Getchell Chargers boys soccer team took on their crosstown rivals, the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on April 5.

As the match started both teams seemed to be evenly matched, fighting aggressively and playing an extremely physical brand of soccer. Through most of the first half neither team scored as each team was playing lockdown defense. The first score came in the 35th minute when the Tomahawks put one in on a free kick. The Chargers didn't waste time as they answered right back in the 38th minute to tie up the first half, 1-1.

Marysville Getchell struck quickly in the second half as they scored in the 46th minute. That score put the Chargers up for good as they shutout the Tomahawks the rest of the way, winning 2-1.

"I think the guys are playing really well right now, and I'm glad we had our lull early in the season. I think we had that a little bit early, but we are starting to move the ball a lot better, we're playing with confidence and with focus, and we're starting to gel. I'm really happy with the chances we are making and how we're putting away games," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Geoff Kittle.

Erik James, Marysville Getchell's senior goalkeeper, played a huge role as the voice of a solid Charger defense. He made a handful of saves while also only allowing one goal off of a free kick.

The duo of Ethan Fuerte and Christhian Sandoval took over for the Chargers as they were the two to score. Fuerte scored the goal to answer the Tomahawks at the end of the first half and Sandoval finished them off with the score early in the second half.

Daniel Amador launches the ball downfield for Marysville-Pilchuck at Marysville Getchell High School on April 5.

"Daniel, our senior captain, coming back was a huge thing because he is our calming force out there. Without him I think that we panicked a little bit and pushed when we didn't have to. We talked about it after the game and we just need to make sure it doesn't happen again," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley.

The Tomahawks' senior captain, Daniel Amador, played incredibly well as he scored the lone goal for M-P before going out in the second half. Unfortunately, an injury kept Amador from finishing out the rest of the game.
