The Marysville-Pilchuck girls softball team matched up against their crosstown rivals, the Marysville Getchell Chargers, on May 10.

The Tomahawks started out strong as they shut out the Chargers in the top of the first inning and then went on to score two runs in the bottom. Unfortunately for Marysville Getchell, the rest of the game turned out to be more of the same. Marysville-Pilchuck shut out the Chargers through all seven innings while adding on three more runs for themselves in the third. The Tomahawks finished on top with a final score of 5-0.

"The new season starts now. I think we ended very respectably and we've come a long way. Our offense has gotten better, our pitching is getting better and as we head into Districts everyone is 0-0 again. The girls are excited to get in there and have the opportunity to battle to get into State. We were there last year and we want to be there again. If we put the hitting, fielding and pitching all together then we'll get a chance to go back," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Aaron Zachry.

Mackenzie Justice dominated from the mound for the Tomahawks as she pitched a complete game shutout while racking up 10 strikeouts. She also contributed from the plate as she put up two hits, two RBIs and a pair of doubles.

Kristin Carr and Chloe Morgan played a big part on the offensive end. Carr blew up for two hits, a run and two RBIs. Morgan also got the Tomahawks off to an early lead as she added a hit and ran in two runs herself.

"Our pitcher, Brionna, played pretty good and kept us in it. We made a few defensive plays throughout the game but in the innings we didn't, we had defensive lapses. You can't do that and expect to win. They know that and they know how to play. We need to be able to field those things and put some plays together. Their pitcher kept us off balance, and even though we got a few hits, we just couldn't string it together. We just got to get it done and that's the bottom line," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Mike Moran.

Brionna Palm kept the game within reach as she pitched through every inning and put together three strikeouts. On the offensive end Emily Petermeyer led the Chargers with two hits.
