The Arlington Eagle girls have won six of their last eight games, defeating Marysville-Pilchuck 65-14 Wednesday night.
Kelsey Mellick got Arlington off to a fast start scoring inside and on a drive to put the visitors up 7-3. Sophomore guard Sierra Scheppele stole the ball, made two free throws, then scored a 3-pointer and after freshman Hailey Hiatt hit another 3 the Eagles led 16-5 after one period.
Arlington’s scrappy defense harassed M-P the entire game. In the second period, Hiatt scored after grabbing an offensive rebound and hit two free throws, Scheppele hit another 3 and Mellick stole the ball and went in for a layup to make it 26-5, and the game was basically over after 1 1/2 quarters.

The Chargers blew the game open in the second period, after holding the visitors to 1 point for 1 1/2 quarters as the Wildcats struggled against MG’s press.
