Poth 27
Cotulla 0

COTULLA -- Poth may have struggled during its first two games of the year, but the Pirates appear to be on track after winning their third straight game, this time during a road trip to Cotulla.

The Pirates are a physical football team that runs right at their opponents, and Poth ran right over the top of the Cowboys last weekend. The defense also stepped up in a big way, all but completely shutting down the Cotulla offense. The Cowboys finished the game with just 86 total yards of offense.

Poth scored its first touchdown of the night early in the first quarter on a 39-yard breakaway run by Koby Pruski. Dylan Sefcik added the point-after kick, and the early lead was 7-0. A few minutes later, the Pirates scored for the second time with a 53-yard run from quarterback Thomas Krawietz, as he covered more than half the field en route to the end zone. Another Sefcik kick made it a 14-0 game with 5:48 to play in the first.

Things settled down a bit from there, but the Pirates got rolling again early in the third quarter as Sefcik scored on a 15-yard passing play from Krawietz. The point-after attempt was no good, but the lead was 20-0, and things were looking good for the Navy and Gold.

In the opening minute of the fourth quarter, Sefcik scored his second touchdown of the game, this time on a 6-yard run from scrimmage. He added his own extra-point kick, and the score was 27-0, a mark that would prove final.

The Pirates are a running team, but that doesn’t mean Poth won’t go to the air on occasion, and when it does, good things can happen. Krawietz completed just one of five attempts, but it was good for 15 yards and a touchdown. Krawietz got most of the work done on the ground for Poth, carrying the ball 12 times for a whopping 147 yards. The 12.3 yards-per-carry average led all runners, as one might expect, and helped the Pirates to the big district win.

Pruski also had a great game, as he ran the ball 10 times for another 80 yards and a touchdown. Sefcik had three carries for 22 yards and a touchdown, and Matt Cantu ran eight times for 17 yards. Sean Clancy had two carries for 8 paces.

Cotulla completed two of three passes but was held to just 7 yards by the stingy Poth defense. Six different backs carried the ball for the Cowboys a total of 36 times, though Cotulla managed just 79 yards on the ground. The Cowboys punted five times.

The win puts the Pirates at 3-2 on the year, and Poth is now 2-0 in District 15-2A DII play. The Pirates will be at home this week, as Poth hosts the 0-5 Natalia Mustangs. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Jack Lane Stadium.
