It wasn’t easy, but after beating Hempstead and Cameron Yoe in the Class 2A Region IV tournament last week, the Poth Pirette basketball team has earned a return trip to Austin -- and the state tournament.

The Pirettes took on Hempstead in the region semifinals, and handed the Lady Bobcats a 50-40 defeat. The Pirettes jumped out to a 13-7 lead by the end of the first period, and never looked back from there.

Hempstead scored 13 points in the second while holding Poth to 12, but still trailed the Pirettes 25-20 at the break. The two teams each scored 10 points in the third stanza, and Poth outscored Hempstead 15-10 in the final period, ending the game at 50-40.

Ashley Fuller led Poth with 19 points in the contest, followed by Micah Weaver with 12. Tara Dunn and Claire Raabe each scored 5 for the Pirettes, and Jordan Kotara and Tara Broyles each dropped in 4.

In the regional title game, the Pirettes took on the team from Cameron Yoe. Poth stumbled a bit at the start, but quickly made adjustments and picked up a 53-34 win in the end.

Yoe came out strong in the first period of play, outscoring Poth 13-9. The Pirettes shut Yoe down in the second period, though, allowing just 2 points, while ringing up 11 of their own. As the teams moved into halftime, Poth led 20-15.

The Pirettes continued to take care of business in the third period, outscoring Yoe 17-11, and taking a 37-26 lead into the final period of play. Poth’s defense continued to apply pressure, and Yoe managed only 8 points in the period. Meanwhile, the Pirettes added another 16 points to the board, ending the game with a 53-34 victory.

Weaver led all Poth scorers with 16 points, followed by Dunn with 8, and Kotara and Raabe with 7 each. Fuller scored 6 points, Broyles scored 5, and Kelli Kolodziej added another 4.

The Pirettes will face Winnsboro in a state semifinal matchup Friday, March 4, in the Frank Erwin Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Tipoff is set for 10 a.m.
