POTH -- There aren’t many Class 2A basketball teams in the area that can hang with Poth, and the Squaws of Jourdanton got to experience that very fact last Tuesday night, as the Pirettes obliterated the visiting team, 90-25.

Jourdanton faced an uphill battle from the very beginning of the game, as Poth dominated at both ends of the floor. The Pirettes created a number of good shots, and led the game by the score of 22-6 after the first stanza.

Things got a bit worse for Jourdanton in the second period, as the Pirettes continued to press the pace, and scored another 29 points. The Squaws were able to score 11 of their own, but still went into halftime down 51-17.

Nothing changed for either team in the third period, as Poth continued to dominate over Jourdanton. It made no difference who was in the game for Poth, as nearly every player who stepped on the floor found a way to hurt the Squaws. The Pirettes piled on another 24 points in the third period of play, and cruised into the final period with a staggering 75-21 lead.

Poth Head Coach Peggy Hosek continued to rotate her entire team into the game, but refused to allow her team to let up. The Pirettes continued a blistering tempo on the court, and Jourdanton struggled to keep pace. The scoring fell off a little in the final minutes of the game, but Poth still outscored Jourdanton 15-4 in the period, and ended the game with a stunning 90-25 victory.

Junior Micah Weaver led the Poth scoring barrage with 23 points on the night, followed by Ashley Fuller with 17 points, and Kelli Kolodziej with 14.

With the win, the Pirettes improved their overall record to 12-6. More importantly, however, the Pirettes closed out the first round of district play with a perfect 6-0 mark, and remain firmly atop the District 30-2A standings.

Poth had an open date last Friday, but was scheduled to return to action Jan. 17 in Cotulla, as the Pirettes begin their second round of district play.
