Poth 34
Nixon-Smiley 20

NIXON -- The Poth Pirate football team ended the year with a perfect 7-0 district record, but it didn’t come easy. Nixon-Smiley put up a good fight at home against the Pirates last Friday, and Poth had to dig deep to keep its perfect district record intact.

The first score of the game brought the home crowd to its feet, as the Mustangs scored on a 2-yard run from scrimmage. The extra point was good, and the Mustangs led 7-0 with 8:37 to play in the first. Then, early in the second quarter, Nixon-Smiley scored its second touchdown of the night on a short 1-yard play. The point-after attempt was no good, but the Mustangs were looking strong against the district champs. By the midway point of the second, though, Poth climbed back into the game with a 2-yard touchdown run. At the break, Poth trailed Nixon-Smiley, 13-7.

The Pirates scored first in the second half to tie the game at 13-all, and a good extra-point kick gave Poth its first lead of the game at 14-13. A 12-yard passing play gave the lead right back to Nixon-Smiley, though, and a good kick made it a 20-13 game. A Pirate touchdown run and extra point in the final seconds of the quarter gave the lead back to Poth, and it seemed as though the game may come down to whoever had the ball last.

In the fourth quarter, however, it was all Poth. Nixon-Smiley was held out of the end zone, while the Pirates punched two more in. Once came on a big 60-yard run to start the fourth quarter, while the final came on a 1-yard plunge. When all the dust settled, it was the Pirates with the 34-20 victory, and a perfect district record.

Poth quarterback Thomas Krawietz completed 5 of 11 passing attempts for 60 yards on the night. He connected with Koby Pruski twice for 30 yards, and once each to Brett Kotara, Jerrek Hosek, and Dylan Sefcik for gains of 13, 9, and 8 yards, respectively.

Krawietz dominated the ground game for Poth, running the ball 25 times for a whopping 257 yards and three touchdowns. Pruski ran 11 times for 40 yards and two touchdowns. Sefcik ran twice for 18 yards, Sean Clancy picked up 15 yards on 9 rushes, and Caleb Albert had one carry for 7 paces.

On the other side, Nick Pena completed 6 of 15 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown, but was picked off twice. Sam Moore pulled in four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown, and Garrett Earlywine caught two tosses for 48 yards.

The Mustang offense had trouble moving the ball on the ground, and Kevin Martinez led the team with 34 yards on 11 carries. Jared Van Auken had 10 carries for 25 yards, Earlywine had seven touches for 22 yards and a touchdown, and Justin Ramos had three carries for 19 yards and a touchdown.

The Pirates finish the year at 8-2 overall, and are a perfect 7-0 in District 15-2A DII play. Poth is the district champion, and will face Hebbronville in the first round of the playoffs. The game is set for this Friday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in George West.

Nixon-Smiley finishes the year at 6-4, while going 4-3 through district play. The Mustangs will make the playoffs as the fourth-seeded team from 15-2A DII, and will square off with the 9-1 Refugio Bobcats. The game will be played this Friday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Victoria.
