BASTROP -- Though Christmas break is a time of rest and celebration with family and friends, the Poth Pirette basketball team finished that up early and headed to Bastrop for the GW Blackmon Basketball Tournament Dec. 27-28.

The Pirettes drew Class 5A Pflugerville Hendrickson for their first game. Tough inside play kept the Pirettes close the first quarter with a score of 9-8. They were down 26-18 at half, and were unable to overcome Hendrickson’s speed and size. The Pirettes lost, 55-41.

Devon Dylla led the team with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Amanda Wauters added 13 points and three assists. Shelby Yanta also added eight rebounds.

The loss moved the Pirettes to the Maroon bracket, where they took on Class 3A Smithville. The team had a much easier time this game, and all 13 Pirettes saw playing time with 10 different players scoring. Poth was victorious, 70-53.

Dylla led all scorers with 20 points and 14 rebounds. Justine Quintanilla added 19 points and two steals.

The Pirettes’ next opponent was Corpus Christi Moody, and they were no match for the Pirettes’ press, speed, and size. Nine Poth players contributed to the scoring, with Dylla leading the way with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Taylor Lipscomb added 11 points and seven rebounds. Wauters added five steals and Dominique DeHoyos had six assists.

With the 68-54 win, the Pirettes moved to the championship game of the Maroon bracket to take on Buena Vista. The Buena Vista team proved to be a challenge for the Pirettes, and it took a Quintanilla 3-pointer from half-court at the buzzer to keep the Pirettes within 1 point by the score of 28-27 at the half. The Pirettes struggled in the third and were down 52-38, before eventually finishing the game with a 67-49 loss.

Dylla and Quintanilla led Poth with 16 points each. Dylla pulled down 10 rebounds, and Yanta added five more. DeHoyos led the Pirettes with five steals.

Poth will resume district play this Friday, Jan. 3, as the team travels to Hallettsville. Both teams are 3-0 in district play, and the winner will take sole ownership of first place.
