Marysville-Pilchuck faces tough Columbia River offense

No. 4 Marysville-Pilchuck travels to face Columbia River in Vancouver on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Kiggins Bowl. The Chieftans are a bit of an unknown coming from the Greater St. Helens League, but are league champions.

“They’re really good defensively, their quarterback has had a great year … they’re a really good football team,” Marysville-Pilchuck coach Brandon Carson said.

If all-league teams are any indication, though, Columbia River will be dangerous through the air. The GSHL Offensive Player of the Year is Chieftans quarterback Gabe Evenson. Receivers Nathan Hawthorne and Carson Bassett also made the first team. Add in a couple offensive linemen and an all-purpose/kick returner and the Columbia River attack looks loaded.

(Not to mention the Defensive Player of the Year is Nathan Hawthorne at linebacker.)

“I like the way we match up against them in the secondary, it’s just a matter of making plays,” Carson said. “Their receivers, they get the ball and they make plays. Their quarterback, sometimes he extends plays with his feet. Well, if you’re not staying in coverage, bad things can happen.”
