MARYSVILLE — Since its establishment Marysville Getchell couldn’t beat cross-town rival Marsyville-Pilchuck in baseball — until April 6.

After a 10-2 trouncing the day before, MG came back with a 5-2 win in the second game of the three-game series.

“It’s huge for a lot of these seniors,” MG coach Gabriel Rochon said. “A lot of them haven’t beaten M-P in a lot of other sports.”

MG’s bats improved, with Collin Montez two-for-four with a double, but it was also improved pitching by Nolan Lechner, who threw all seven innings.

“I think what we saw yesterday was late in the game we were not throwing strikes,” Rochon said. “Today, our biggest thing was to come out and throw strikes. It was awesome to see.”

In order to beat M-P again, much the same has to play out, Rochon said.

“I think going into Friday, we just got to carry over and remember that they’re [M-P] going to come out with some more intensity,” Rochon said. “But I think it’s a matter of us coming out and playing the same game.”

Mark Bielawski led M-P with two RBI.

In game one, Kyler Alvis was two-for-three for M-P with a double and a run, and MG’s Zachary Emery led with two RBI. Overall, M-P’s record is 5-2, and MG’s 2-6.

MARYSVILLE — Siloe Galvin and Omar Flores scored a goal each to blank Mountlake Terrace 2-0 April 6 in soccer. Glacier Peak shut out M-P 3-0 April 4. M-P’s record is 7-1-1.

STANWOOD — The Marysville Getchell boys soccer team tied 0-0 with Edmonds-Woodway in overtime. Lynnwood defeated MG 1-0 April 4. MG’s record is 1-4-4.
