POTH -- It didn’t end with a victory for the Pirettes, but Poth’s Aug. 27 volleyball match with Alamo Heights did give the girls some court time with a quality opponent that will only make them better down the stretch.

Taking on, and defeating, Class 4A and 5A teams is the norm for Poth during the non-district portion of the season, but Poth couldn’t get past the Mules this time. Alamo Heights opened up a 4-1 lead on Poth to start the match, only to watch as the Pirettes pulled back to tie things up at 5-5. The teams were then tied at 6-6 before senior Devon Dylla registered a kill to give the Pirettes their first lead of the night.

The first game was later tied at 8-8, and again at 10-10. Poth began to pull away from there, leading 15-10 and 19-13 at one point. The Mules came back to narrow the lead to just 2 points, though, and later tied things up at 20-20. Alamo Heights took a brief lead at 21-20, but Poth came back and eventually got the win, 25-23.

The Pirettes scored the first 2 points of the second game, but Alamo Heights came back and soon led Poth. The back-and-forth battle continued, as the teams found themselves tied at 5-5, 10-10, and even at 15-15. Alamo Heights pulled away from there, however, and took a 25-18 win to tie the match at a game apiece.

In the third game, Poth once again got out to an early lead at 3-0, and led 5-1 at one point. The Mules came back quickly, though, catching the Pirettes at a 7-7 tie. Alamo Heights moved out in front on the next point, and never surrendered the lead again. Poth stayed close to its opponent, and made a late run that put the Mules on their heels, but Alamo Heights held on for the 25-19 victory, taking a 2-1 advantage in the match.

The Mules scored first in game four, but Poth came back to tie things quickly. Alyssa Kallies and Dylla came up with several thunderous kills, though Poth remained a few points behind throughout the game. The Pirettes began to fade a bit at the midway point of the game, and Alamo Heights pulled ahead. The Mules wrapped up game four fairly quickly with a 25-16 win, and took the 3-1 match victory back to Alamo Heights.

Dylla and Kallies led Poth offensively with 12 kills apiece, and Alyssa Kruse added another four. Amanda Wauters tallied eight assists and three aces before leaving the game with an injury, and Kruse finished the night with 16 assists and an ace. Jordan Schneider led the defensive effort with 17 digs, followed by Kallies with 14, and Maddie Caloss with another 11. Dylla registered one block, and Schneider and Kruse each earned half blocks.

The Pirettes were scheduled to compete in the Leander Tournament Aug. 29-31, and at Steele High School Sept. 3.
