Hebbronville 12
Poth 34

GEORGE WEST -- The Poth football winning streak is up to nine games following the Pirates’ 34-12 victory over the Hebbronville Longhorns last Friday night in a bi-district playoff.

After dropping the first two games of the season, the Pirates rattled off eight straight wins to finish the regular season at 8-2 overall, and 7-0 in District 15-2A DII. As the district champs, Poth would have enjoyed a bye at this time last year, but a rule change sent four teams from each district into the playoffs, and forced the first-place teams into a bi-district playoff. That was no problem for Poth.

The Pirates and Longhorns kept things close in the first quarter, though Poth held a 7-6 advantage after the first 12 minutes of play. The first score of the night came about four minutes into the contest as Pirate quarterback Thomas Krawietz ran in from 14 yards out. Dylan Sefcik booted the extra point, and the lead was 7-0. Hebbronville then scored on a 38-yard passing play, though a missed extra point left Poth out in front.

Early in the second quarter, Hebbronville took its only lead of the game with a 10-yard rushing touchdown to move in front 12-7. The Pirates really got things moving late in the second quarter, though, as the team went to the air and scored on a pair of passing touchdowns. Krawietz hit Sefcik from 27 yards out to score the first, and the two reconnected from 42 yards out for the second. Sefcik added an extra point, and Poth held a 20-12 lead at the break.

Koby Pruski got into the scoring action early in the third quarter on a 2-yard run from scrimmage, and the extra point made it a 27-12 game. The Pirates then scored their final touchdown of the night as Sean Clancy ran one in from the 25-yard line. Sefcik added the extra point, and the score stood at 34-12 with about eight minutes left to play in the game.

Poth held on from there, running the ball and killing the clock to preserve the playoff victory. The Pirates did threaten to score again late in the fourth quarter. Poth drove down into the red zone, but allowed the clock to wind down before padding the score any further.

The win put Poth at 9-2 on the year, and gave the team a bi-district championship to add to the resume.

Krawietz completed 5 of 7 passing attempts for 110 yards and two touchdowns. Sefcik caught two passes for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns, Jerrek Hosek caught a pass for 22 yards, Brett Kotara caught a pass for 10 yards, and Clancy caught one more for 9 steps. Krawietz led the Pirate running game with 19 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown, and Pruski ran nine times for 91 more and the score. Rhett Kelley picked up 30 yards on his one carry, Clancy had the touchdown run of 25 yards, and Hayden Dallmeyer ran once for 4 yards. Caleb Albert also had a carry for 3 yards.

The Pirates will move from playing the Longhorns to battling the Shorthorns, as Poth and Schulenburg prepare to clash in the area championship. The game will be played this Friday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in Victoria Memorial Stadium.
