The Marysville-Pilchuck wrestling team looked to continue their undefeated season against their cross-town rival Marysville Getchell Chargers on Jan. 12.

The Tomahawks struck first as they secured six points with a pin in the first match. The Chargers fired back with a three-point win in the second match, but after that Marysville-Pilchuck began to run away with it. Through 14 matches Marysville Getchell was able to secure four victories for a total of 18 points. In the end, the Tomahawks racked up an impressive 57 points, and maintained their undefeated record.

"The kids are always amped up about facing a rival and it's fun for all of our sports because a lot of these guys grew up together. We're looking forward, there are three more matches then it's districts so we are fine tuning our technique and getting ready," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Craig Iversen.

The Tomahawks had a couple of impressive performances from their 220-pound senior Adam Holston, and 113-pound senior Cole Daurie. Holston attacked early as he got the takedown in the first few seconds and then locked in the pin 16 seconds into the match. Daurie used his speed and quickness to get the takedown and then ultimately put together the cradle pin with 1:03 left in the first round.

"We're a green team, we have a lot of freshmen. There are going to be some growing pains and we were just outwrestled tonight," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach John Deaver.

Marysville-Pilchuck's Baily Alvis and Marysville Getchell's Jesus Cabadas lock up early in their match Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Jan. 12.

The Chargers had a total of four wins and two of those came at the hands of their 182-pound Shane Reichlin and 145-pound Trey Padgett. Reichlin earned the only pin on the night for Marysville Getchell as he ended the match with seven seconds left in the second round. Padgett had arguably one of the most exciting matches of the night as he faced Isaiah Galindo. Up until the last few seconds they were tied 1-1, but in the last few seconds Padgett was able to earn a takedown and secure the win.

Marysville-Pilchuck will face the Arlington Eagles for their last home match of the season, on Thursday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m. If you want to support Marysville Getchell, they will host the Oak Harbor Wildcats on Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.
