The Marysville-Pilchuck boys basketball team took on the Meadowdale Mavericks in a game that got out of hand quickly, on Jan. 30.

The Tomahawks started off slow on the offensive end as they struggled with perimeter shots in the first quarter. However, on the defensive end they were able to shut down the Mavericks to four points while scoring 14 of their own. Through the rest of the half, Marysville-Pilchuck caught fire, scoring 23 points and allowing eight.

Coming into the second half up 37-12, the Tomahawks were able to keep their foot on the gas and secure their victory early. Over the last two quarters they outscored Meadowdale 38-24, and walked away with the 75-36 win.

"We started out a little rough, but we keep on talking about how defense wins championships. Everyone says it, but we are using that as a catalyst for our success. We are working as a team on both sides of the ball and that is something special," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Bary Gould.

The Tomahawks' big three of Raequan Battle, Luke Dobler and Josiah Gould dominated their matchups up and down the court. Battle led all scorers with 19 points, one three-pointer, while adding on four assists, seven rebounds, two blocks and a steal. Dobler tied for the second highest team total with 13 points, three three-pointers, and also totaled an assist, six rebounds and two steals. Gould scored 13 points as well, but led with a game-high eight assists, to go along with two rebounds and three steals.

Marysville-Pilchuck's senior forward, Kobe Baumann, also played a key role as he was fourth in points with eight. He also had an assist, five rebounds, a block and a steal.

The Tomahawks have wrapped up their regular season but will be looking for a State Tournament berth in the 3A District Playoffs. Districts will begin on Feb. 10.
