The Marysville-Pilchuck girls basketball team welcomed the Lynnwood Royals onto their home floor on Jan. 3.

The Tomahawks started off the game strong as they were the first ones to put points on the board. With improved ball movement and more aggressive play, Marysville-Pilchuck looked better than they have all year. However, the Tomahawks got in trouble with turnovers and fell behind 16-8.

The second quarter was a different story as the Royals had trouble scoring on the Tomahawk defense. Marysville-Pilchuck managed to force Lynnwood into foul trouble and keep the game close as they entered into halftime down, 30-19.

In the second half, the Royals made a statement by outscoring the Tomahawks 21-3 in the third quarter. Marysville-Pilchuck ran into a lot of trouble with finishing around the rim and weren't able to convert their possessions. After creating their huge lead, Lynnwood coasted the rest of the way and secured the victory with a score of 68-29.

"At the end of the day we want to make sure that we are getting better and playing good basketball. We are trying to grow the program, we have a long way to go, but we are so young and there is a lot of upside here," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.

Mary Moses, the Tomahawks freshman point guard, provided a bright spot for her team coming off the bench. With Marysville-Pilchuck having a rough time on both sides of the ball, Moses was able to lead her team with 18 points while adding on three rebounds, a block and two steals.

The veteran duo of Miriah Summers and Hanna Koehn also added value to the Tomahawks performance. Summers scored six points while grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds and three steals. Koehn only added two points to the scoreboard but filled up the stat sheet with eight rebounds, an assist, two blocks and two steals.

The Tomahawks will be hosting their next game against the Shorecrest Scots on Wednesday, Jan. 10, at 7:15 p.m.
