Karnes City 10
Poth 7

POTH -- Following a much-welcomed afternoon rain, the Poth Pirates welcomed a longtime 2A district rival to a soggy Jack Lane Field last Friday night, as the Karnes City Badgers came to town for a matchup between two playoff-bound teams without a district loss. Karnes City Head Coach Jim Wood had his Badgers well-prepared, after being denied a victory over the Pirates for the past several years. The Badgers’ preparation paid off, as, for the first time since Oct. 16, 2009, Head Coach Andrew King and the Poth Pirates lost a district football game.

The Pirates’ defense, led by seniors Craig Kilgore and Phillip Garza, was solid and kept a Badger team stacked with 15 seniors in check throughout the contest. Unfortunately for the Pirate fans that braved the year’s first cold front, the Badger defense was just as determined.

A typically crushing Pi-rate running game was stifled by a relentless Badger defense. Also, three Badger interceptions against the Pirate passing game made it impossible for the home team to gain any momentum with the ball.

The lone Pirate score of the game came with 10:11 left in the second quarter when sophomore quarterback Thomas Krawietz dropped back to pass and, while under pressure, hit senior running back Phillip Garza for a short dump-off pass behind the line of scrimmage. What appeared to be a short gain or a loss quickly became more as Garza broke three sure tackles, including leaving the last Badger defender on his back before breaking away for a 84-yard touchdown reception. Senior Zachary Lyssy added the extra point and the Pirates seemed to be rolling with a 7-0 lead.

Karnes City, though, would respond on its very next possession. Following the most sustained drive of either team on the night, sophomore Paul Kinney took the handoff and plunged his way into the end zone from 2 yards out with 7:06 remaining in the first half. Senior John Garza added the point-after kick and the game was locked at 7-7.

Continued relentless defense from both teams found the clock expired without a victor in regulation and overtime commenced with a 7-7 tie.

Poth won the overtime coin toss, giving the Pirates the first opportunity to score in overtime. By rule, each team is given an opportunity from the opposition’s 20-yard line to score. The Pirates were unable to convert, and the Badgers took possession.

As the Badgers were unable to breach the Pirate defense and get into the end zone, Karnes City lined up for a 23-yard field goal attempt on fourth down. John Garza stepped into place and calmly sent the ball through the uprights, sealing the Pirates’ first district loss in more than three years.

This week, the Pirates (6-2, 4-1) will travel to Dilley as they try to rebound against the playoff-bound Wolves (6-2, 5-0), while the Stockdale Brahmas will welcome and try to tame the Badgers.
