The Marysville Getchell boys basketball team visited the Everett Seagulls for the 3A Play-In matchup on Feb. 8.

From the tip-off both teams battled back and forth never allowing a large lead to grow on either side. The Chargers took shots from all over the floor as they found a rhythm early in the matchup. The Seagulls used their speed in order to lose their defenders and get quick buckets. By the end of the first quarter Marysville Getchell led Everett by a score of 15-13.

In the second quarter, Everett continued to use their speed, but also subbed in taller players in order to dominate on the boards. The Chargers started to have trouble hitting their shots and began to fall behind. Going into halftime the Seagulls led 30-25.

The Seagulls rode their momentum in the second half as they had a 17-6 run early on. With a large lead forming, the Chargers began to battle back but never managed to lock down the Everett offense. With an explosive offensive performance through the last two quarters, Everett walked away with the 77-50 victory.

"One of our goals was to come together closer as a family and get this experience with a play-in game. We have got to get bigger, faster and stronger. In games like this you have to be able to keep up with your physicality, so we have to get back in the weight room and come together," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Corby Schuh.

Marysville Getchell's Ian Roskelley goes for a layup at Everett High School on Feb. 8.

The young duo of Malakhi Knight, freshman, and Cameron Stordahl, sophomore, led the Chargers throughout the game. Knight had team highs in assists with four, and blocks with two, while also adding on 15 points and three steals. Stordahl scored 15 points as well while adding on three assists and a team-high seven rebounds.

Ian Roskelley, senior, and Leno Vela, sophomore, were also able to fill up their stat sheet while contributing to the team. Roskelley scored four points, two assists, two rebounds and three steals. Vela came off the bench and scored five points as well as one assist and three rebounds.

With this loss the Chargers were knocked out of the postseason and their season is over. With a young roster, they will be looking to grow through the offseason and make a playoff push next year.
