Chargers' Cameron Stordahl gets the steal and goes for the layup at Marysville Getchell High School on Jan. 19.

The Marysville Getchell boys basketball team matched up with the Meadowdale Mavericks on Jan. 19.

The Chargers got off to a sloppy start as they had a few turnovers early on but turned it around on the defensive end as they locked down everything inside the arc. They managed to only score six points in the quarter but held the Mavericks to 10. In the second quarter, Meadowdale took over early with a 12-0 run over Marysville Getchell. Down 22-6, the Chargers got on a streak of their own with a big 20-4 run, entering halftime 26-26.

The Mavericks started off the second half with yet another 10-0 run and kept the Chargers at bay as they only allowed two points through the third quarter. With a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, the Mavericks coasted their way to a 56-43 victory.

"It's an easy game when you make shots. In the second quarter we started hitting and got back in it, but we just couldn't put the ball in the hole. Credit to Meadowdale and their defense, we tried to take it to the rack and from the outside, but they're a good team," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Corby Schuh.

Ian Roskelley gets aggressive in the fourth quarter as he gets the shot to fall between two Maverick defenders at Marysville Getchell High School on Jan. 19.

The freshman guard, Malakhi Knight, played a key role for the Chargers as he led the team in points with 18. Knight hit three shots from beyond the arc while also grabbing three rebounds, an assist and three steals.

The forward duo of Cameron Stordahl and Ian Roskelley also played a big part in the Chargers fighting back early on. Sotrdahl finished with 12 points, an assist, a rebound, a block and three steals. Roskelley finished with six points, an assist, two rebounds and two steals.

Down in the paint Ethan Jackson made sure to secure rebounds and give Marysville Getchell more possessions as he scored two points, an assist and a team-high four rebounds.

If you want to support the Marysville Getchell Chargers their next home game will be against the crosstown rival Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on Friday, Jan. 26 at 7:15 p.m.
