The Marysville Getchell girls basketball team opened up their season as they faced off against the North Creek Jaguars on Nov. 27.

From the tip-off the Chargers seemed to struggle on both sides of the court. Offensively, they weren't able to work the ball inside the arc and on defense they had trouble securing rebounds, which led to second chance points. These issues led to the Jaguars' huge lead in the first quarter, leading 22-5. Marysville Getchell managed to clean up their offense a little in the second quarter as they doubled their offensive output but still gave up 20 points. By halftime, North Creek controlled the game by a score of 42-16.

The second half was more of the same for both teams as the Chargers weren't able to put it together. North Creek kept their foot on the pedal as they scored 34 more points while only allowing eight to Marysville Getchell. In the end the Jaguars walked away with the 76-24 victory.

"They never gave up and made some adjustments at halftime which was huge. We need to focus on the positives right now with how little experience that we currently have on the roster. It was a game where we worked out the kinks, and moving forward I think we'll see a lot of growth," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Junior guard Sydney Norton led the Chargers in scoring through the first half as she put up five points on a deep three and a floater in the lane. Unfortunately, early in the third quarter she suffered an injury to her knee and was unable to play the rest of the game.

Kiki Green, Marysville Getchell's other junior guard, also managed to put up five points by attacking the paint. She earned one layup and made three free throws on six attempts.

If you want to come out and support Marysville Getchell, they will be traveling to their crosstown rival, the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks, on Saturday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m.
