The Arlington boys’ basketball team was unable to defeat the Marysville Pilchuck Tomahawks in a Tuesday night 3A North division matchup, as the Eagles lost to the Tomahawks, 57-45.

MP’s Josh Bevan was able to put up eight quick points in the first quarter, and give MP the lead 13-8 by the end of the quarter. But Arlington’s Drew Bryson (’17) was also able to put points on the board early in the game, with eight of his own in the quarter. The Eagles battled back to cut MP’s lead to two in the second quarter, but by the end of the half, MP led 27-20.

MP was able to pull away by the end of the third quarter, leading by ten as it went to the fourth. The Eagles looked to try to get back in the game, but their efforts were ultimately not enough. Even with high scoring nights from Bryson (14 points) and senior Donavan Sellgren (16 points), the Eagles fell to the Tomahawks by twelve points, 57-45.

Coming back from a leg injury that has sidelined him for most of the season, senior Tylor Morton scored three points on the night. He said that when it comes to his injury, “as soon as I get on the court I don’t think about it that much.” Morton said that he went into the game looking to “play some defense” and was “trying to see what was best for the team.”

The Eagles drop to 3-3 in conference play and 7-9 overall. Arlington looks to get back on track this Friday, as they take on the Oak Harbor Wildcats in Oak Harbor.
