The Marysville Getchell girls softball team took on their crosstown rival Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on May 4.

Both teams got off to slow starts as no runs were scored throughout the entire first inning. The Tomahawks made the first move as they crossed home plate twice in the top of the second inning. They kept their momentum rolling as they scored another run in the third and six more in the fourth. With a strong hitting performance and a string of shutout innings, Marysville-Pilchuck went into the sixth inning leading by a score of 9-0.

In the sixth, the Tomahawks scored two more runs and allowed the Chargers to have a chance at keeping the game going in the bottom of the inning. Marysville-Pilchuck shut out Marysville Getchell and ended the game early with the mercy rule, and a score of 11-0.

"They're a good team and they threw a good game. I think we had a decent performance but we need to build our confidence and know that we can play with these teams when it comes to the postseason," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Mike Moran.

The Chargers were led by their sophomore pitcher Brionna Palm and sophomore outfielder Maile Pingree. Palm pitched the entire game, put together two strikeouts from the mound, earned one hit and had one single. Pingree had the only other hit for Marysville Getchell and turned that into a single.

Shannon Patton, Marysville Getchell's sophomore catcher, sends one into left field against Marysville-Pilchuck at Marysville Getchell High School on May 4.

"We are a little banged up and missing a few players, so I think we have better games to come. Our pitching staff has been very strong this year and McKenzie Justice is tough to hit when she has her best stuff," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Aaron Zachry.

Justice, senior pitcher, dominated in every aspect for Marysville-Pilchuck. From the mound she pitched a complete game shutout, only allowed two hits and racked up five strikeouts. Justice led at the plate too as she had two hits, two runs, three RBIs, a double and a triple.

The Tomahawks were also led by Chloe Morgan, senior center fielder, Sydney Zachry, junior catcher, and Kelsey Campbell, junior outfielder. Morgan went perfect at the plate going 3-3 and added on one run, two RBIs, one stolen base and three singles. Zachry had three hits, one RBI, two singles and a double. Campbell had three hits, two runs, two singles and a big triple.

If you want to support either of the Marysville teams they will be competing in the 3A District Tournament, starting with the Play-In game on Thursday, May 10.
