Lady Chargers beat by Lynnwood

MARYSVILLE — Though the Marysville Getchell girls basketball team was bested by the No. 1 Lynnwood 57-47 Feb. 1 in a Wesco 3A league game, coach Shannon Grandbois was still proud of the fight her girls showed.

“[Lynnwood’s] been there. They’ve been to state. They know what that level of play is,” Grandbois said.

“And to hold them to ten [points], that’s good.”

The Chargers took off fast with a run to start the first quarter, leading 5-2 but settling for 9-9 going into the second quarter.

MG’s momentum eventually wore as they were out sized by the 3A perennial power trailing, 32-17 at halftime.

Senior Gabrielle Grandbois led MG game with 19 points, but Lynnwood’s 6-foot-1 senior Kelsey Rogers was a handful to contain at the post scoring a game-high 22 points.

Grandbois adjusted the game plan after halftime by slowing down the game tempo, and having the Chargers play better defense.

“We just needed to double-down on [Rogers] in the middle, and not get into the run-and-gun show,” Grandbois said.

“We’re an athletic team, we have to slow it down and use their weaknesses to our advantage.”

Marysville Getchell improved in the remaining half by scoring 17 and 13 points in the third and fourth quarter respectively, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Lynnwood.

“I think we did well,” Grandbois said.

“I think we needed to stick to our game plan a little bit more, and we would’ve been fine.”

With the 3A districts coming up next week, Grandbois said her team team’s goal is to win a game in the bracket.

They entered last year for the first time under Grandbois, but lost the first game.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Grandbois said.

“These girls have really worked hard on-and-off season. And they have a connection between the team that is hard to come by.”

MG’s record dropped to 12-6.
