POTH -- It was a good first season under new Head Coach Kevin Wiatrek, but after a narrow 54-52 loss to East Chambers in the area championship, the season has come to an end for the Poth Pirate basketball team.

After three straight wins to close out district play, the Pirates entered the playoffs Feb. 19 against the Comfort Bobcats. The Pirates and Bobcats played a tight first period of basketball, and when the clock expired, it was Poth on top by a single point at 13-12. Things didn’t go quite as smoothly in the second period, though, as Comfort outscored Poth 11-7 and took a 23-20 lead into the break.

Wiatrek managed to get his team refocused for the second half, though, and the Pirates came out strong. Poth outscored Comfort by 5, and took a small lead into the final eight minutes of play. The Pirates dominated those final minutes, and managed to outscore the Bobcats 20-3 en route to a convincing 56-37 victory.

Jacob Caloss led the Pirate effort with a 23-point game, and Kyler Felux scored another 12 for Poth. The win was No. 19 on the year, and propelled the Pirates into the area round of competition.

The Pirates took on the East Chambers Buccaneers Feb. 22 in the area championship. Poth and East Chambers had a great game, and it was eventually decided in the final seconds of play.

The Pirates and Bucs traded punches throughout the first period of play, but by halftime, it was East Chambers with a 6-point lead, 30-24. The Pirates took full advantage of the rest, and Wiatrek once again rallied his troops, leading Poth to a brilliant third-period comeback. The Pirates scored 13 points during the third stanza, and managed to hold East Chambers to just 1 point, making it a 37-31 game in favor of Poth with just one eight-minute period to play.

The fourth period was full of action, as both teams seemingly scored at will and the scorekeeper was kept busy advancing the board. East Chambers continued to eat away at Poth’s lead, and eventually tied the game at 52-all with less than a minute to play. In the end, the Bucs had the final shot, and eliminated the Pirates with a 54-52 win.

The Pirates end their season with an overall record of 19-9, went 8-4 in district to finish as the No. 2 team from District 28-2A, and won a bi-district playoff game. If this season is any indication, it appears as though the Pirates will stay on track with Wiatrek at the helm.
