It was rivalry week as the Marysville-Pilchuck girls basketball team welcomed the Marysville Getchell Chargers to their home court on Dec. 9.

From the tip-off both teams seemed to have trouble finding their chemistry on the offensive end. With a lot of turnovers and stingy defense the Tomahawks narrowly held the lead after the first quarter, 7-6.

In the second quarter, Marysville Getchell found their groove and took over as they maintained their defense and began to score with ease. With incredible ball movement and ability to penetrate the Tomahawk defense the Chargers led at halftime, 23-13.

The second half was more of the same for Marysville Getchell as they shut down Marysville-Pilchuck to a total of nine second-half points. The Tomahawks weren't able to solve the Chargers' defense as they lost by a score of 51-22.

"In a game like this with the cross-town rivalry, I think we just needed to settle down in order to balance out that adrenaline. Our team is so supportive of each other. They are the most loving, caring team and they know that whatever they do we are behind them 100 percent," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Brionna Palm and Alexus Atkins dominated the paint for the Chargers as they led the team in points with 10 and nine, respectively. Palm also added on five rebounds, while Atkins had seven rebounds and a block.

Madison Hagglund and Pilani Tupou provided huge sparks off the bench for Marysville Getchell as well. Hagglund hit two threes, totaled eight points, four rebounds and a block. Tupou added on six points with a game-high eight rebounds, one steal and one block.

Pilani Tupou goes strong inside and scores for the Chargers at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Dec. 9.

"We have a young, inexperienced team and it's a rivalry game so the tensions are high and emotions are high. They took us out of a lot of stuff that we've been running and they just played really good basketball," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.

Miriah Summers led Marysville-Pilchuck with eight points and also added on a team-high seven rebounds and two steals.

Lauren Lewis also contributed to the Tomahawks as she put up a three pointer, totaled four points, two rebounds, two assists and a game-high three steals.

If you want to support the Tomahawks they will be taking on the Stanwood Spartans on Friday, Dec. 15, at 7:15 p.m.

The next home game for the Chargers will be against the Snohomish Panthers on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at 7:15 p.m.
