The Marysville Getchell girls basketball team traveled down to the Mountlake Terrace Tourney to take on the Mariner Marauders on Dec. 27.

The Chargers started off slow as they couldn't find their shot and gave up an early run to the Marauders. Later in the first quarter Marysville Getchell was able to go on a run of their own and close the gap, as they trailed 13-12. The rest of the first half was more of the same as both teams went on small runs but were never able to create a big lead. Going into halftime, Marysville Getchell kept the score close as they were down 30-25.

In the third quarter, Mariner stayed calm and stuck to their game plan as they took over on both sides of the ball. With a lot of turnovers and miscommunication the Chargers allowed 19 points while only scoring eight of their own. They managed to turn it around in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough as the Marauders walked away with a victory, 56-42.

Mylanie Cabrera moves toward the baseline as she looks to score on the Marauders defense at Mountlake Terrace High School on Dec. 27.

"We should have beat them, but experience was on their side. I commend my team as they have learned and have begun to gel throughout this season. Every game we play there is a different five out there and that's important because I can trust all 10 whenever they're in. With all the teams figuring out who they are, the league is up for grabs," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Brionna Palm played a huge part for the Chargers off the bench as she led the team in points with 14. Palm also tied for the team lead in rebounds with seven and added on a steal. Sydney Norton was right behind her with eight points, as well as four rebounds and two assists.

Marysville Getchell's senior duo of Abby Pfeil and Mylanie Cabrera also contributed early on. Pfeil led the team in blocks as she swatted away two shots while scoring six points, seven rebounds and an assist. Cabrera led the team in assists with four, and steals, 2, while also scoring three points and grabbing three rebounds.

If you want to come out and support the Chargers, their next home game will be against the Arlington Eagles on Wednesday, Jan. 3, at 7:15 p.m.
