POTH -- After finishing as the District 28-2A co-champs, and enjoying a first-round bye in the playoffs, the Poth Pirette basketball team began postseason play in an area championship matchup with the Anahuac Panthers. The Pirettes had absolutely no issues with Anahuac, and walked away with a lopsided 89-28 win.
As things got rolling in the first, Poth looked like it was playing a team that didn’t belong. The Pirettes held the Panthers to just 2 points in the first period, but hung 27 on board for themselves. Poth added another 24 in the second, while holding Anahuac to just 10. As the buzzer signaled the end of the first half, it was Poth way out in front, 51-12.
The Pirettes came out of the locker room and played like they had from the game’s onset, scoring another 29 points in eight minutes. Anahuac added another 10, but the Panthers’ inability to keep pace with Poth was apparent.
The Pirettes dialed way back in the fourth, scoring just 9 points, but the team held Anahuac to just 6 points, and locked up the 89-28 victory.
Ashley Fuller led Poth’s offense with 21 points, followed by Micah Weaver with 18 and Justine Quintanilla with 15. The win gave the Pirettes another area championship, and sent them on to regional play.
The Pirettes were scheduled to face Boling in the regional quarterfinals, though results were unavailable at press time. The game was scheduled to be played Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. in Cuero.
