The Marysville-Pilchuck boys basketball team welcomed their crosstown rivals, the Marysville Getchell Chargers, to their home court on Dec. 9.

The tension between both teams could be felt as every player was battling in each possession. With stout defensive efforts, they kept it close as the Tomahawks ended the first quarter with a slight lead of 13-12.

Marysville-Pilchuck went into attack mode in the second quarter as they tried to push the ball inside more often in order to draw fouls. The Chargers got into foul trouble early and put the Tomahawks on the line. The Tomahawks managed to slowly grow their lead throughout the quarter as they led 29-22 at halftime.

Through the third quarter neither team scored very much as there were only 10 points between both teams, eight of which went to Marysville-Pilchuck. The fourth quarter is when the Tomahawks opened up the game and scored 26 to the Chargers 14. In the end, Marysville-Pilchuck walked away with the 63-38 victory.

"Our goal is to always hold them under 10 per quarter and we haven't been able to do that until tonight. We're undefeated right now, but this season is just getting started and we have a lot of tough games ahead of us," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Bary Gould.

The guard combo of Luke Dobler and Josiah Gould dominated for the Tomahawks as they were the two leading scorers. Dobler had a game-high 18 points, two three-pointers, four assists, eight rebounds and five steals. Gould was right behind him with 15 points, six assists and five steals.

Marysville Getchell's Cameron Stordahl muscles his way past Corbin Sims to get into the paint at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Dec. 9.

Raequan Battle also began to heat up late for Marysville-Pilchuck, as he scored 13 points, added on six rebounds and two steals.

"Corby does such a great job and they are so young. They're young and they are going to be good, like our situation was last year with everyone coming back. They'll be talking about them this next year and this game will be even scarier," said Coach Gould.

Malakhi Knight and Cameron Stordahl led the Chargers as they scored 12 and 11 points, respectively. Knight, the freshman guard, also hit two three-pointers, three assists, six rebounds and two steals. Stordahl added on four rebounds to go with his points.
