The Marysville Getchell boys baseball team opened up their first game of league play against the Stanwood Spartans on March 16.

The Spartans got off to a strong start as they scored two runs in the top of the first inning. The Chargers answered right back in the bottom of the inning as they tied it up early, 2-2. Both teams battled back and forth through the fifth inning, never allowing more than one run to come in between them.

In the final two innings, Stanwood managed to hold of Marysville Getchell as they scored three runs to put the game away. The Chargers weren't able to score in the bottom of the seventh and lost the game 7-5.

"The group that we have is young, but they are playing with a lot of energy. I want to play with high energy and never waste any time that we get to play the game. We're going to work through the inexperience and build that confidence every day," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Gabriel Rochon.
