POTH -- It usually makes for a pretty good game when rival teams from Poth and Stockdale take the court together, but last Tuesday’s district basketball game between the Pirettes and Lady Brahmas was pretty one-sided.

While hosting Stockdale last week, the Pirettes jumped all over the Lady Brahmas, building up a big 28-6 advantage after the first eight minutes of play. Poth then cuts its points production by nearly half in the second, but still held Stockdale to just 7, and led 43-13 at the break.

Things were closer in the second half, but Poth maintained its advantage, and once again outscored Stockdale. With just one eight-minute period remaining, it was all but over for the Lady Brahmas, as they found themselves trailing by 36 points.

Poth turned things up even further in the fourth stanza as the Pirettes tacked on another 19 points. Stockdale was held to just 3 points in the fourth period, and ended up on the short end of an 80-28 final score.

Pirette senior Devon Dylla led Poth with 24 points, followed by junior Dominique DeHoyos with 15 points. Amanda Wauters scored 10 points, Taylor Lipscomb was good for 9, and Shelby Yanta added another 8 points.

Lauren Donsbach led the Lady Brahma effort, scoring nearly half of Stockdale’s points, as she tossed in 12. Vanessa Urrabazo added another 6.

The win lifted Poth to 4-1 in district play, and the Pirettes went on to defeat Luling on Friday to end the week with a 5-1 district mark. For Stockdale, it was district loss No. 5 of the year. The two teams will meet again Friday, Jan. 31, as the Pirettes make the drive across the county to Stockdale. The Lady Brahmas will be looking for some help from the home crowd as they try and even things up with Poth.
