Poth 7
East Bernard 42

BASTROP -- After a heartbreaking 42-7 loss in the regional semifinals, the season has finally come to an end for the Poth Pirate football team. The Pirates had another great season in 2013, though, finishing the year at 10-3, winning a district title, and picking up victories in the bi-district and area rounds of the playoffs.

The Pirates traveled to Bastrop Nov. 29 to face the unbeaten East Bernard Brahmas. The Pirates played their brand of smash-mouth football, running the ball a total of 47 times on the night, but scored their one and only touchdown through the air.

With little more than three minutes remaining on the first-quarter clock, Poth quarterback Thomas Krawietz connected with Jerrek Hosek for 15 yards and a touchdown. Dylan Sefcik booted the extra point, and the Pirates held a 7-0 lead as the teams moved into the second quarter of play.

Unfortunately for Poth, East Bernard found the end zone just nine seconds into the second quarter on a 5-yard run. A Brahma extra point tied the game at 7-all. After some back and forth, the Brahmas added another second-quarter touchdown on a 36-yard passing play. The extra point was good, and East Bernard held a 14-7 lead at the half.

Although the Pirates put some good drives together in the second half, the team was unable to find the end zone again. Meanwhile, East Bernard went on to score a pair of rushing touchdowns in the third quarter for a 28-7 advantage, and then another pair in the fourth quarter en route to the 42-7 final score. The victory advanced East Bernard into the Region IV final, while the season comes to an end for Poth.

Krawietz led the Pirate ground game with 126 rushing yards on 26 carries. Koby Pruski ran 12 times for 44 yards, Sean Clancy ran five times for 18 yards, and Rhett Kelley had three carries for 4 steps.

Krawietz completed 4 of 8 passing attempts on the night for 61 yards, including the touchdown to Hosek and a 30-yard completion to Brett Kotara.

The Poth defense did a good job defending the Brahma passing game, but did have trouble slowing the team on the ground. East Bernard averaged more than 9 yards per carry for 286 paces on 31 carries.

The Pirates finish the season at 10-3 overall and were 7-0 in district play to capture the 15-2A DII crown. The Pirates will lose some key players to graduation, including Hosek and Sefcik, but will return the bulk of their team, including a number of players at skill positions.
