Eagles best Chargers on the court

MARYSVILLE — The Arlington Eagles outlasted the Marysville Getchell Chargers 82-58 after an intense first half Jan. 3 in a 3A Wesco league game.

“They came out ready for us, and we knew they would,” Arlington coach Nick Brown said. “These kids know each other, and their coach does a good job.”

Leading scorer senior Drew Bryson appeared unstoppable, making layups from many different angles and hitting shots from afar as well. Bryson scored a game-high 21 points.

Arlington, entering the game with a 4-5 record, claimed the lead early, but MG (2-8) went ahead on a 3-pointer by freshman Cameron Stordahl, putting the Chargers ahead 10-9. MG extended its lead to 16-13 after another run and 3-pointer by Stordahl, who finished the game with 15 points.

The strong start was all going to plan for MG.

“Our game plan was to get the ball inside and try to establish our big guys,” MG coach Corby Schuh said. ‘We didn’t really do that, but we found some success hitting some shots.”

Arlington responded with a five-point run capped-off by a Bryson field goal, winning the first quarter 18-17.

Arlington climbed to 23-19 in the second quarter, until Stordahl landed a 3-pointer to bring MG within 23-22.

The Chargers couldn’t come close to taking the lead again, as their scoring cooled off. They were outscored 17-11 and trailed 35-28 at halftime.

Schuh said, too many turnovers caused by Arlington’s pressuring defense, wore on MG.

“We had a hard time breaking their press and getting into our offense,” he said.

Arlington took over after halftime, outscoring MG 23-11 and 24-19 in the last two quarters.

“I felt like we were ready to play, but we just didn’t have the energy we needed to have to match their’s, and they took it to us,” Brown said.

Sophomore Anthony Whitis added 18, and senior Sam Tregoning scored 14 for the Eagles.

“Now we’re getting other contributions that are making us really hard to play,” Brown said. “I think we just need to do a better job at doing our stuff in practice, and doing a better job of being the team that we know that we are.”

Arlington improved its record to 5-5, and dropped MG’s to 2-9.
