Daniel Amador sets up the formation as he makes a push to score for the Tomahawks at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on April 28.

The Marysville-Pilchuck boys soccer team fought back and forth with the Oak Harbor Wildcats on April 28.

From the start of the match the Tomahawks were on the attack, pressuring the ball upfield and taking shots at the goal at every opportunity. With a total of nine shots on goal in the first half, the Tomahawks managed to put one away in the 11th minute. Entering halftime, Marysville-Pilchuck had shut out the Wildcats and held a score of 1-0.

In the second half, the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks kept their strong defense and shut out the Wildcats the rest of the way. The Tomahawks weren't able to take advantage of a few shots late in the match, but still walked away with the 1-0 win.

"I think that we didn't take advantage of our opportunities because we had several to put the game away, but didn't do it. It made my heart race a little bit at the end. We are pretty much set up the way we are going to be for Districts, but we just need a few more quality finishes the rest of the way. We've made steady improvement, have dealt with some nagging injuries and if we can get through those then we'll be okay" said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley.

The only goal of the night was put in by senior Siloe Galvan early in the match. Another big performance came from the Tomahawks' sophomore keeper as he totaled four saves and held the Wildcats scoreless for the shutout.

The regular season is over for M-P but you can still see them perform in the 3A District Tournament at Shoreline Stadium, starting on May 4.
