SEATTLE — In just his second game with the varsity, freshman Austin Joyner scored two touchdowns for Marysville Pilchuck as it rode a 29-point second quarter to overcome a slow start and defeat Garfield in a nonleague game. Joyner carried six times for 91 yards. The Tomahawks’ Deion Stell added two touchdowns, including a pivotal 87-yard kick return that swung the momentum back to Pilchuck’s favor. The one-win Garfield squad hung around into the second quarter when it held a 14-6 lead. The Bulldogs racked up 200 yards on the ground, 292 total, but also had four turnovers. “We had a couple of breakdowns early,” Marysville Pilchuck head coach Brandon Carson said. “Just little things and I think we got those fixed which allowed us to start moving the ball and do what we expected to be able to do against them.”
