NIXON -- After watching the state-ranked Poth Pirette basketball team knock off the state-ranked Nixon-Smiley Lady Mustangs, it was the guys’ turn to hit the hardwood in a heated district matchup. The action swung back and forth through four periods of play, and a winner couldn’t be decided in regulation. The teams went to an overtime period, and the Mustangs emerged on top of the Pirates with a 52-50 victory.

The Mustangs got rolling right out of the gate, hanging 19 first-period points on the Pirates. Poth did manage 11 during the first stanza, but had an 8-point deficit to overcome down the stretch.

The scoring pace slowed significantly in the second period, as each team stepped up play on defense. While the Pirates were held to just a basket less than what they did in the first period, the Mustangs’ scoring output was cut in half. Each team put 9 points on the board during the second period, and Nixon-Smiley held a 28-20 lead at the break.

The Pirates came out strong to begin play in the second half, and Poth added 15 points to the board. Nixon-Smiley managed another 11, but saw its lead cut to just 4 points as the teams moved into the final eight minutes of play.

The Pirates did what they needed to do in the fourth period, outscoring the Mustangs by 4 points, and forcing the game to a tie by the end of regulation. Knotted up at 45-all, the teams moved to an abbreviated overtime period. The play was close, but in the end, it was Nixon-Smiley with the win, 52-50.

Matt Finch led the way for the Mustangs with 11 points, followed by Garrett Earlywine with 9, and Jared Van Auken and Samuel Moore with 8 points apiece. Victor Evans dropped in 7 points, Nick Pena was good for 6, and Tristan Newman scored another 3.

On the other side of the floor, Brock Nelson led the Poth charge with 16 points. Kyler Felux scored 14 for the Pirates, and Dillon Zaiontz was good for another 11. Seth Barrow scored 5 points, and Spencer Flieller and Jerrek Hosek each scored 2.

With the win, the Mustangs improve to 2-0 in District 28-2A play, while the Pirates fall to 1-1. Poth is scheduled to face Hallettsville at home Friday, Jan. 4, in its next district matchup, while Nixon-Smiley travels to Schulenburg the same day.
