POTH -- Poth invited the Lady Bear basketball team over for a game Nov. 29, but the Pirettes were anything but hospitable. The home team pounded on the Lady Bears from the opening tipoff until the final buzzer, handing La Vernia a 73-17 loss.

Poth played aggressively from the onset, and outpaced the visiting Lady Bears 23-5 in the first period of play. It was followed up with more of the same in the second, as the Pirettes posted 25 points, while allowing La Vernia just 4. When the clock expired on the first half, it was all Poth, 48-9.

The Pirettes were a little less aggressive in the second half, and La Vernia made a few needed changes at the break. Poth still outscored La Vernia 18-3 in the third stanza, and 7-5 in the fourth to lock up a 73-17 win over the Lady Bears.

The Pirettes’ full-court pressure and fast-break abilities make for an exciting game, and junior guard Ashley Fuller was hitting her shots to lead the team with 26 points. Senior Tara Broyles was also money for the Pirettes, as she dropped in 14 on the night. Kelli Kolodziej was close behind with 12 points, and Micah Weaver scored 7. Claire Raabe and Jennifer Kruse each scored 6 points for Poth, and senior post Jordan Kotara added 2 points to go with her strong defensive play inside.

Kristine Key led the La Vernia scoring effort with 8 points on the night, followed by Madison Towns with 6 points and Kelsee Penshorn with 3 points.

Following their Tuesday night game, both teams switched gears a bit as they competed in tournament play. Poth drove up U.S. 181 to Floresville, while La Vernia crossed over I.H. 10 to play in Marion. The Pirettes won their first game over Poteet, but then fell to Clark and Brandeis to end their tournament play.

For La Vernia, the Lady Bears started the tournament with a loss to Marion, but then knocked off the teams from Bandera and Lackland Stacey to win the consolation bracket.
