MARYSVILLE — It wasn’t pretty at first, but the Marysville-Pilchuck football team eventually clicked to win the Berry Bowl from Marysville Getchell 49-10 Oct. 2.

“We have a lot of young kids playing this year that haven’t had a lot of primetime varsity experience,” M-P coach Brandon Carson said. “Early in the season they have to progressively get better and get used to what it’s like playing Friday nights.”

Much of the first quarter was scoreless with the Chargers’ defense snuffing the Tomahawks’ run game, creating two consecutive stops on fourth down, but once M-P senior quarterback Erik Lind opened up the passing game, the Tomahawk running backs found the endzone. The Tommies dominated on both sides of the ball throughout the remainder of the game.

“Turnovers and penalties have hurt us early in the season,” Carson said. “So I thought tonight we did a good job of taking care of the football and we were able to force some turnovers so that was nice.”

M-P senior running back Garrett Anderson led with three rushing touchdowns, junior Galdino Fajardo tacked on two and sophomore Ray Pimentel had one while leading in rushing with 130 yards.

“[Pimentel]’s one of those guys — he’s young, he’s a sophomore, he plays hard and he’s got some good quicks;” Carson said. “He’s done a fine job for us.”

On defense, safety Keith Pablo returned a 78-yard interception for a touchdown in the second half.

M-P improved its record to 3-2 while MG dropped to 2-3.

In other local football game: Lakewood defeated Cedarcrest 35-18. Lakewood quarterback Austin Lane threw for 227 yards and three touchdowns two of which were to receiver Sam Linscott. Tyler Courtney rushed for two touchdowns.
