Arlington captures 3A playoff berth

ARLINGTON — Arlington locked up the second seed from the Wesco 3A Friday night, edging Marysville-Pilchuck 21-20 in a key Wesco North high school football game.

The win sends Arlington to Auburn for a quad-district playoff next week.

And Arlington did it all without starting quarterback Brandon Gunter and senior wide reciever Jerad Barber.

“Really pleased with our team effort tonight,” Arlington Coach Tim Tramp said.

Sophomore Jake Pardun started in place of Gunter and finished 10-16, with 127 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

The win didn’t come easy. Marysville-Pilchuck tied the game at 14-14 just before halftime off of Levi Cartas’s 85-yard kickoff return, then took a 20-14 lead in the third quarter off a 1-yard run from Shawn Delappe. Marysville-Pilchuck’s extra point attempt was blocked though, keeping the Tomahawks’ lead under a touchdown.

Arlington took the lead in the fourth when Chris Myers lofted a 59-yard completion to D.J. Lockwood on a half-back pass. The play set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Michael Keating. Danny Pierce’s extra point went through to give Arlington a 21-20 advantage.

“Pierce was huge for us,” Tramp said. Pierce connected on all three of his extra point attempts on a night when the Eagles blocked both of Marysville-Pilchuck’s extra point attempts.

Marysville-Pilchuck drove to Arlington’s 15-yard line with under a minute to play, but Alex Marshman picked off the Tomahawks’ next pass attempt, and Arlington ran the clock out.
