MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Getchell boys basketball team showed some weaknesses as it was routed 81-39 by Squalicum Dec. 21, but freshman Cameron Stordahl’s 3-ball wasn’t one of them.
“He came ready to play,” coach Corby Schuh said. “He looked like he wanted it, hit some shots which was good.”
Stordahl made things interesting for the Chargers down 20-9 in the second quarter. After sinking hi first 3-pointer in the first quarter, Stordahl dropped in three more in the second, including a buzzer-beater. But MG was still behind 38-26 going into the locker room.
Stordahl led the Chargers with 14 points in the game.
“I think we’re a better team than we showed tonight,” Schuh said. “We had a good run there to close the first half.
I challenged them in the locker room to step up and we didn’t.”
Stordahl didn’t land another 3-pointer the rest of the game, but other Chargers contributed, including 6-foot-7 sophomore Jallang William, who used his height to get rebounds and a block in the fourth quarter, and junior Ian Roskelly, who was second in scoring, with 12 points.
“It was a tough one,” Schuh said. “Squalicum shot the ball well. In the third quarter we obviously didn’t do very well. We turned over the ball, couldn’t make a shot, and they hit a lot of threes. We kind of fell apart.”
MG also lost to Lake Steven 53-41 Dec. 19. Senior Cody Day led MG with 14 points.
MG’s record dropped to 1-8.
