The Marysville Getchell Chargers football team laid it all out on the gridiron as they battled the Mariner Marauders on Sept. 8.

From the first whistle the Chargers ran into some trouble as they had multiple communication issues that led to back-to-back drives ending in punts. However, the Marysville Getchell defense stood strong as they slowed down the Marauders and kept them to 14 points through the first half. At halftime the Chargers trailed 14-0.

The second half wasn't much better as the first three offensive drives for Marysville Getchell ended with interceptions. With Mariner running up and down the field, the Chargers found themselves down 35-0 by the end of the third quarter. They finally managed to find their footing late in the game as they scored once on a short run on the goal line. In the end the Chargers lost with a score of 35-6.

"We're trying to find our identity on offense. You know we're a very young group with only 12 seniors, so we had a few mistakes, some drops and those led to turnovers. But it was good to see that we could still move the ball and in a couple of weeks those problems won't be there anymore because we'll be dialed in," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Davis Lura.

On the offensive side of the ball there were a few bright spots as Caleb Koellmer worked as a dual threat from the quarterback position. With a handful of drops he wasn't able to string together more than a couple of solid drives. Nathan Broome also contributed with a strong running game, scoring up the middle for the lone Chargers' touchdown.

Defensive end Mejinta Adams-Taylor dominated for the Chargers' defense as he racked up two sacks, a tackle for loss and a handful of tackles throughout the game.

If you want to support Marysville Getchell, their next game will be at Arlington High School as they take on the Eagles for their first Wesco North matchup. The game will be on Friday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m.
