The Marysville Getchell football team took on one of the best teams in Washington as they welcomed the undefeated Ferndale Golden Eagles to their home field on Oct. 27.

Marysville Getchell got off to a slow start as they were forced to punt on their first possession of the game. Ferndale capitalized on the good field position and managed to score inside the first two minutes of the quarter. The Golden Eagles went on a run after this early score as they forced punt after punt and scored on each of their drives to put up 55 uncontested points. The Chargers still fought hard as they put together an effective drive and worked down the field to score on a short run in the last seconds of the first half.

With a running clock in the second half, Ferndale managed to score one more time while holding the Chargers out of the end zone. The Golden Eagles secured their undefeated record on the season with a 62-7 victory over the Chargers.

"There is a tradition here that we will play hard every night and show everyone that we don't give up. As we develop, they are starting to make better decisions and adjusting on the fly. We had some young guys playing tonight and I think we are gaining a lot of experience that we can take into next year," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Davis Lura.

Chargers' quarterback Caleb Koellmer took control through the air and on the ground as he led the team in passing and rushing yards. Koellmer also put up the only score of the night for Marysville Getchell with a goalline run. Senior receiver Ian Roskelley was his favorite target as he brought in 4 passes for 63 yards.

On the defensive side of the ball, Devon Rose and Bradley Engelman had a tackle for loss each as they battled through the Ferndale offensive line.

If you want to travel to support Marysville Getchell, their last game of the season will be at Shorewood High School as they take on the Thunderbirds on Friday, Nov. 3. at 5 p.m.
