Marysville Pilchuck routs Marsville Getchell in rivalry game

The Tomahawks rush for 398 yards and claim a 33-3 win over the Chargers in the Berry Bowl.

MARYSVILLE — There’s no debating which football program runs the Strawberry City.

Marysville Pilchuck has claimed the Berry Bowl, a 75-year-old wooden strawberry crate, each time its met Marysville Getchell. Not one game has been close. And Friday was no different.

Pilchuck raced out to a two-touchdown lead, physically dominated up front and earned a 33-3 Wesco 3A North rivalry win over Getchell at Quil Ceda Stadium.

“Our offensive line was the difference,” MP coach Brandon Carson said. “They were pretty dominant up front most of the night. We got a lot of different guys who can touch the ball, and tonight we did a really good job of establishing the run.”

The win marked the sixth time, out of seven games, Pilchuck has beaten Getchell by 30 or more points. The victory also gave Pilchuck (5-1, 3-1 Wesco 3A North) its fourth consecutive win.

Trenton Hurst led the Tomahawks’ pounding run game with 195 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries, and Bryan Sanders added 110 rushing yards on 13 carries.

A 64-yard touchdown run by Hurst put Pilchuck in front 13-0 at 7:21 in the first quarter. The Tomahawks took a 20-3 lead into halftime after a second-quarter 3-yard TD run by Jordan Justice and added two more scores in the third to effectively put the game out of reach.

Pilchuck compiled 398 rushing yards compared to 27 for Getchell (2-4, 2-3).

IMPACT

Marysville Pilchuck improved to 7-0 against Marysville Getchell and has dominated the rivalry since it began in 2012. The Tomahawks sit in second place in the Wesco 3A North. Getchell was coming off a thrilling 17-14 win over Arlington last week, but couldn’t keep that momentum going. The Chargers sit in the bottom half of the 3A North.

TOP PERFORMERS

Trenton Hurst, Marysville Pilchuck — The senior power back did his damage from Pilchuck’s fullback position. Hurst carried 22 times for 195 yards and scores of 64 and 2 yards. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound back saw some nice holes thanks to his offensive line, and his punishing downhill running style seemed to wear the Chargers down.

Dillon Kuk, Marysville Pilchuck — Kuk erased any thought of a comeback with interceptions on back-to-back second-half possessions. The junior wide receiver and defensive back also caught two passes for 64 yards.

Marysville Pilchuck’s offensive line — The whole unit was dominant. They paved the way for two 100-yard rushers, and helped MP rack up 7.2 yards per carry.

Caleb Koellmer, Marysville Getchell — Koellmer didn’t have a great completion rate (10-of-27), but the senior quarterback did make some nice throws. He had completions of 29, 27 and 22 yards.

QUOTABLES

“To me this means that we are the best football team (in the city), clearly. We are friends with them off the field. We talk with them. We hang out with them, but on the field we got to run the city, so we have to take the ‘W.’” — Marysville Pilchuck’s Dillon Kuk

“He had some explosive plays for us and some good, tough runs for us when they were trying to take stuff away. I thought he had a fantastic night. Our backs did a good job of blocking also.” — Marysville Pilchuck coach Brandon Carson on Trenton Hurst

PLAY OF THE GAME

For all of Getchell’s struggles on offense, they executed a reverse pass that was arguably the most exciting play of the night. Backup quarterback Josiah Koellmer lined up at wide receiver and received a pitch from a Getchell running back who was carrying the ball the other way. Koellmer pulled up, and threw a beautiful pass downfield to Max White, who made a nice catch. The play setup the Chargers’ only score of the night, a 31-yard field goal from Cameron Hazelwood.
