With four players reaching double figures in scoring, the Marysville-Getchell Chargers were too much for the Meadowdale Mavericks boys basketball team to handle Wednesday. The Chargers came away with a 70-60 victory over the Mavericks in a Wesco League matchup played at Meadowdale High School.
Junior Malakhi Knight led the M-G attack with 28 points; Austin Townsend scored 14 points, Alex Owens tallied 11 points and Will Dunn added 10 points for the victorious Chargers.
Colton Walsh and Cole Nelson each scored 14 points for the Mavs while Will McKinley contributed 10 points in the loss.
Meadowdale (2-1 in 2A/3A Wesco League play, 4-5 overall) will be back at home Friday when they host the Everett Seagulls, 7:15 p.m., at Meadowdale High School.
