MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck boys basketball team grinded out a 3A North League game with cross-town rival Marysville Getchell Jan. 12, in which the Tomahawks prevailed 49-46.
“A lot of credit for the Getchell Chargers — they brought it,” M-P coach Bary Gould said. “But then again our guys ended up prevailing and that’s the perseverance and resiliency that we try to preach.”
M-P was ahead but only by 27-24 at halftime. MG was always hot on M-P’s heel, but the Tomahawks defense helped keep the lead, Gould said.
“We put some pressure on them in third quarter, and they started to turn the ball over a little bit, and we were able to score,” Gould said.
M-P’s Josh Bevan led M-P with 12 points, and Collin Montez of MG led with 16. M-P’s record improved to 3-8, and MG’s fell to 6-6. M-P will play at Oak Harbor Jan. 19 at 7:15 p.m., and MG hosts Stanwood Jan 19 at 7:15 p.m.
