Marysville Getchell's Kortney Crane launches the ball across the field as she sparks the offense at Prairie High School on Nov. 8.

The Marysville Getchell girls soccer team traveled to Prairie High School to take on the Falcons in a hard fought match in the first round of the 3A State Girls Soccer Tournament on Nov. 8.

The Chargers looked comfortable and strong in the first half as they came out with good defense and an aggressive offense. They were able to score quickly in the 20th minute and made key defensive plays in order to shutout the Falcons through the rest of the first half.

Prairie came out on fire in the second half as they put up the tying goal within the first few minutes of possession. Both teams continued to battle it out as each put pressure on the other, fighting for a chance to move on in the tournament. Unfortunately for the Chargers, the Falcons earned a penalty kick in the 60th minute and converted the shot for a goal. This would turn out to be the game-winning goal as the Falcons won the game, 2-1.

This was a historic year for Marysville Getchell as they made their first trip to the State Tournament in the school's history. Finishing fifth in their division with a record of 6-3-3, and an overall record of 10-5-4, the Chargers battled the odds as they fought hard in Districts and earned a State berth.

The small group of seniors that led them this season include: midfielder Hannah Jones, forward Breanna Robinson, midfielder Hayli Huhta, defender Megan McReynolds and forward Oshinaye Taylor.

As the season ends, the Chargers will only be losing five seniors during the offseason. With such a young roster Marysville Getchell hopes to continue the success of their program behind the coaching of Kyle Suits.
