The Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks girls soccer team took on the Lake Stevens Vikings for the first game of the season on Sept. 7.

From the start of the game, the Tomahawks and Vikings battled with great defense as neither team scored in the first 30 minutes of play. In the last 10 minutes of the first half the Vikings went off, scoring in the 33rd and 38th minute to enter halftime up 2-0.

The second half started with great defense once again for Marysville-Pilchuck as they held off the Vikings until the 72nd minute. Unfortunately, Lake Stevens could not be stopped as they scored three more times while shutting out the Tomahawks. In the end Marysville-Pilchuck lost by a score of 5-0.

"We wanted to see what we look like. The first game is all about playing everybody and figuring out where we need to work to be better. We just need to tweak some stuff and I think we'll be really good," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley.

The Tomahawks are led this year by their captains:, Olivia Lee, Dominique Jenkins, Chloe O'Loughlin and Elizabeth Erickson. Lee and O'Loughlin put pressure on the offensive side of the ball all game as they managed to put together a few shots on goal. Jenkins and Erickson held the defense together as they kept Lake Stevens scoreless for a large part of the first half.

Junior keeper, Hanna Koehn also played a big role as she grabbed a handful of saves throughout the contest.

"We need to clean up our soft passes, distribution to our wings and finishing. We had a few opportunities where we should have put it in and we didn't do it," said Coach Bartley.

If you want to come out and support the Tomahawks they will be going against the Lynnwood Royals at home, on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7:30 p.m.
