The Arlington girls soccer team hosted the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks for the last game of their regular season on Oct. 24.

From the start of the game the Eagles pressured the Tomahawk defense as they had multiple shots on goal within the first 10 minutes. Marysville-Pilchuck attacked right back as they used their superior speed in order to get close enough to earn a penalty kick. They scored on the PK in the 14th minute. Neither team scored for the rest of the first half as the Tomahawks led 1-0.

In the beginning of the second half Arlington began their attack once again as they nearly scored off of a corner kick early on. Unfortunately for the Eagles they weren't able to finish off their offensive drives against the Tomahawk defense. Over the next 30 minutes Marysville-Pilchuck scored twice more while keeping their shutout intact. In the end, the Eagles lost to the Tomahawks by a score of 3-0.

"We played with great intensity and great passion. We made a lot of growth throughout the game but we just need to be able to finish on those shots. We've learned a lot of lessons and I think it's something we can take to next season," said Arlington Head Coach Nathan Davis.

Hailee Wrzesinski led the Eagles on both sides of the pitch as she remained aggressive throughout all 80 minutes. She worked with Jersey Heiss and Hannah Hiester as they worked together for multiple shots on goal.

"After this one we are going to back off a little in terms of work as we head into the postseason. When you get to this point it is about quality over quantity and it's just about getting ready to go," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley.

Mackensie Connelly struck first for the Tomahawks as she converted the early penalty kick into the first score of the game. In the second half Trina Davis took over as she scored both of Marysville-Pilchuck's goals along with an assist from Dominique Jenkins.

The regular season is over for girls soccer. The 3A Districts tournament will be held at Edmonds Stadium until Saturday, Nov. 4.
