POTH -- It hasn’t been an easy road, but after knocking off Cotulla and George West last week, the Poth Pirate basketball team is in sole ownership of the district’s No. 1 spot.

The Pirates were 5-0 in district play heading into their Jan. 18 game with Cotulla. The Pirates made things look easy, though, as they knocked off the Cowboys 79-44.

Poth started a bit slowly against Cotulla, missing several early scoring opportunities and trailing by 3 points at one time. By the end of the first period, the teams were tied at 12-all, and Coach Fred Radske had a few words of encouragement for his team.

An already-good Poth defense looked even better in the second period, and the Pirates’ first basket came off a steal. Cotulla stayed in the mix to take the lead again at 16-14, but then Poth caught fire and never looked back.

Denver McKinney started the run with a shot from outside, then Tommy Waclawczyk added 6 points with a pair of 3-point plays. Jesse Dugi got into the action to put Poth on top by 8, and Waclawczyk did the honors after another defensive steal to lift Poth ahead by 10. A pair of free throws by Cotulla temporarily broke the run, but McKinney hit a 3-pointer to start things up again, and then finished off another Pirate steal with a layup. By the time the first half came to an end, Poth was enjoying a bit of a cushion with a 37-23 advantage.

Billy Korzekwa got Poth started in the second half as he scored a basket on the Pirates’ first possession. McKinney dropped in another quick basket, and the lead was 18. The Cowboys dropped in a 3-pointer, but it hardly phased the Pirates, as Poth went on a 9-point run from there. At the end of the third stanza, things were all but over, as the Pirates led the Cowboys, 54-32.

In the final stanza, Poth continued its domination. The Pirates scored the first 6 points of the period, and dropped in four 3-pointers before time expired. Cotulla spent a little time at the charity stripe, but couldn’t climb back into the game as Poth ran away with things, 79-44.

McKinney led the way with 19 points, followed by Waclawczyk with 17 and Dugi with 11. Korzekwa scored 8 for Poth, Oscar Ramon was good for 7, and Jacob Caloss scored 6. Tyler Kallies scored 5 in the game, and Josh Jaskinia, Blaine Moczygemba, and Aaron Friesenhahn each scored another 2.

In the Pirates’ final game of the first round in district Jan. 21, the team traveled to George West to take on the Longhorns, and they didn’t make it easy on Poth.

The Pirates had a good first period of play in George West and held a 20-14 lead after the first eight minutes of play. The Longhorns outscored the Pirates in the second stanza, though, and closed the gap. Poth still led at halftime, but the score was closer at 35-33.

During the break, Poth Head Coach Fred Radske must have said the right things, as his team returned to the floor in the third and dominated its opponent with a 19-7 performance. Poth extended its lead to 14 points, and then added another 19 in the final period to lock up the 73-62 win.

It was Dugi who paced the Pirates in George West with 17 points, followed by Jaskinia with 15 and McKinney with 14. Caloss scored 10 points for Poth, Ramon dropped in 7, and Moczygemba added another 4. Waclawczyk scored 3 points, Friesenhahn scored 2, and Kallies added a free throw.

The Pirates were scheduled to play in Karnes City Jan. 25, and will be at home against Natalia Jan. 28.
