Poth, Stockdale split games last week
Poth’s Annika Eckel fights for position and the ball during the Pirettes’ Jan. 4 win over Hallettsville.
STOCKDALE -- It’s always a great matchup when cross-county rivals Poth and Stockdale meet in athletic competition. Last Tuesday night was no different, as the boys and girls basketball teams met on the hardwood in Stockdale, with bragging rights and a district mark on the line. In the end, the teams split games, giving each school a win on the night.
The girls took the floor first, and the state-ranked Pirettes were looking strong. Senior guard Ashley Fuller led Poth to an early lead, guiding the team to a 25-10 advantage after the first stanza, and a 42-19 cushion at the break.
The Lady Brahmas tried to make adjustments in the second half, but the Pirettes were too much for them, as Poth outscored Stockdale 21-5 in the third, and took a commanding 63-24 lead into the final eight minutes of play. The Pirettes maintained their pressure throughout, scoring 14 more in the fourth while holding Stockdale to 8 points. Poth easily won the game, 77-32.
Fuller put up 25 points to lead the Pirette scoring effort, followed by Micah Weaver with 16 and Devon Dylla with 12. Kelli Kolodziej was good for 7 points, Alyssa Kruse scored 6, Amanda Wauters scored 5 points, and Dominique DeHoyos dropped in another 4.
Senior guard Makaley Perez led the Stockdale effort with 9 points, followed by Sarah Holguin with 8 points, and Kat Wehmeyer with 6. Lashay Castro scored 5 points for the Lady Brahmas, while Lauren Coston and Kristen Moore each scored 2.
Once the girls game had concluded, the guys took over the court, and a great battle ensued. The visiting Pirates came out strong in the first period, and held a 15-8 lead after the first eight minutes. Stockdale flipped things around in the second stanza, however, outscoring Poth 18-8, and taking a narrow 26-23 advantage into the locker room.
The scoring was lessened at both ends of the floor following halftime, but the Brahmas still maintained their advantage, scoring 12 points in the third, while holding the Pirates to just 3 points.
Trailing by 12 points, the Pirates turned on the heat in the fourth period, scoring 21 points in a race against the clock. The Brahmas were held to just 13 fourth-period points, but it was enough for them to maintain the lead, and to secure a 51-47 win.
Stockdale senior guard Josh Vela led the Brahmas with 20 points on the night, followed by Robert Bischak with 14. Tristan Marquez scored 7 points, Tanner Maxwell dropped in 5, and Taylor Deason was good for another 4. Matt Valadez scored 1 point for Stockdale from the free-throw line.
On the other side of the floor, Kyler Felux led the Pirates with his 14 points. Dylan Sefcik scored 8 points in the effort, while Jerrek Hosek added 7 more. Dillon Zaiontz and Seth Dunn each scored 6 points, Brett Kotara scored 4, and Marcos Guevara scored another 2.
The teams continued with their district matchups from there, as Poth went on to face Luling, and Stockdale took on Schulenburg. Poth was scheduled to face Karnes City Jan. 15, and Stockdale was scheduled to meet Nixon-Smiley.
