MARYSVILLE – The Marysville Getchell Chargers upset Arlington 2-1 April 28, improving their record 3-10 and making the Eagles fall to 7-4-2.
“We’re playing with a lot of confidence now,” MG coach Geoff Kittle said. “I think the guys are starting to believe that they can win now.”
It turned out to be MG’s highest-scoring game of the year, as well as the finishing touch of a two-game win streak as MG defeated Stanwood 1-0 April 24.
MG’s Berna Salcedo and Roger Devora-Ledezma scored a goal apiece, but goalkeeper Riley Kalaman kept MG alive with 14 saves.
“He has to make some great saves to keep us in the game,” Kittle said. “That builds our confidence to know that he can make that save when he needs to.”
MG scored its first goal in the first half, but Arlington’s Larry Norris responded with one to tie 1-1. MG completed its second goal of the night in the final half, with Kalaman coming up with some close saves to give MG the win.
“They’re [Arlington] a feisty team,” Kittle said. “They have five league wins on their record so we just had to respect them and be ready to fight.”
The Chargers are not sure if they’ll make it to the post season, but Kittle is confident that MG will win its six remaining games.
