MARYSVILLE – Marysville Getchell picked up a historic and thrilling win in football Friday, upsetting Arlington 17-14.

MG quarterback Caleb Koellmer took the Chargers 76 yards in five plays in the final seconds, setting up a 21-yard field goal as time expired by sophomore Cameron Hazelwood.

MG was ahead until the Eagles tied it with 1:25 remaining on an 8-yard TD pass from Cole Cramer to Dylan Simmons, followed by a 2-point conversion.

Cramer played instead of all-league QB Anthony Whitis, who was out with a concussion. The week before Whitis scored on the last play of the game to give the Eagles the victory, but he was injured on that play.

Koellmer, a 6-foot-4, 215-pounder, was the Chargers main threat throughout the game. But instead of his passing, he was more effective running, carrying the ball 30 times for 151 yards and two touchdowns.

But on the final drive his passing moved the ball down the field. Koellmer ended the game connecting on 13 of 19 attempts for 113 yards. Ryan King and Garrett Devereux each caught three passes.

For Arlington, Brayden Whetstone got the Eagles on the board first with a 2-yard run.

In another 3A Wesco game Sept. 28, Marysville Pilchuck romped past Stanwood 34-24.

M-P receiver Dillon Kuk only caught three passes, but all were for TDs to lead the visitors. Trenton Hurst led the ground attack with 189 yards on 33 carries.

After falling behind early 6-0, Kruk scored his first TD on a 13-yard pass from Jake Elwood. The two combined again for 47 yards in the second quarter, then added another just before half on 23 yards.

Bryan Sanders scored from 10 yards out in the third, and Elwood added another in the fourth, scoring from 1-yard out.

Elwood was only 3-for-9 passing for 83 yards, but he did get the three TDs.

In a 2A game, Lynden beat Lakewood 31-14.

Cougar QB Jared Taylor hit on 22 of 33 passes for 177 yards and a score. Taylor spread the ball around, led by Sean Phillips with five catches and Landon Pruitt and Machai Harris with four each.

On Saturday, the big sports event was the Twi Lite Invitational at Cedarcrest Golf Course in Marysville, which draws dozens of teams and thousands of runners and fans each year.

Jesuit won the boys competition with 63 points. Arlington was fourth with 164, Marysville Getchell 24th with 662 and Marysville-Pilchuck 27th with 754.

Jesuit also won for the girls with 51. Arlington was 13th with 331 and MG 19th with 577.

In 1B-2A boys first was Sammamish with 118. Lakewood was 8th with 267.

For the 1B-2A girls, Liberty Bell had 47. Lakewood was sixth with 204.

In soccer, Snohomish whipped M-P 5-1. Mackensie Connelly got the Tomahawk goal.
