The Marysville Getchell boys soccer team competed against the Shorewood Thunderbirds on March 27.

The Thunderbirds took advantage of the Chargers' defense early on as they took the possession early and drove down the field. With a quick turnover and a lot of speed in transition, Shorewood scored in the first minute of the match. After taking advantage of the early score, the Thunderbirds attacked once again in the third minute and scored. Heading into halftime, Marysville Getchell was down 2-0.

In the second half the Chargers were able to get their offense going as they put themselves in position to take shots on goal. With multiple attempts they were unable to find the back of the net. However, Marysville Getchell increased their defensive effort and held a shutout the rest of the way. In the end Shorewood secured a 2-0 victory.

"In our pregame we need to figure out how to get going early. In most of our games this year we have given up goals in the first few minutes and that needs to stop here. But, when we look at the second half, I think that's the team that we are capable of being and if we can do that then we'll put ourselves in a good spot," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Kyle Suits.

The goalkeeper duo of sophomore Cameron Chadd and junior Evan Sprague had a big impact on the final score. After the first three minutes of the game the goalkeepers kept a shutout the rest of the way alongside their defense. Senior defender Rylee Bies-Johnson led the last line of defense through the second half as they jumpstarted their offense late in the game.

If you want to come out and support the Chargers, they will be playing against their cross-town rival Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on Wednesday, April 4, at 7 p.m.
