Local teams struggle Friday night (slide show)

LAKEWOOD — Down 19-6 at halftime, it seemed the Lakewood football team was done against South Delta, but quarterback Austin Lane gave the Cougars a brief rally in the third quarter. Lane put together a drive that ended in a touchdown but a missed two-point conversion brought the score to 19-12. But Lakewood's defense couldn't stop South Delta from scoring and things became lopsided again for the Cougars when they, in turn, were unable to put up points. The game ended in a 41-26 loss for Lakewood. Lakewood's record is 0-2.

EVERETT — The Marysville Getchell football team lost a close non-league game to Mariner 34-27 Sept. 9. The Chargers were scoreless 21-0 at one point in the game, until they battled back into a back-and-forth contest. “It was the fact we were conditioned so well,” coach Davis Lura said. “Mariner got tired and we just kept pushing.”

But some errors on both sides of the ball hampered MG’s rally, Lura said. “We had our chances,” he added.

The final drive for MG ended in an interception, the Chargers’ defense held the Marauders to a punt, but a roughing-kicker-penalty ensured the win to Mariner.

MG’s record fell to 1-1.

MARYSVILLE — Marysville-Pilchuck lost to Lynnwood 35-10 in a non-league football game Sept. 9. M-P’s Jacob Carr scored the Tomahawks’ only touchdown rushing it in 45 yards. M-P’s record is 0-2.

LAKE STEVENS — The Arlington football team lost a non-league game against Lake Stevens 42-7 Sept. 9. Devon Nutter scored the lone touchdown for Arlington on a 39-yard pass from Campbell Hudson. Arlington’s record fell to 1-1.
