KARNES CITY -- On the same night Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley were playing out a close rivalry, Poth traveled down to Karnes City to take on rivals of their own. At the end of the night, the Poth girls had earned a win, as did the Karnes City boys.

The Pirettes jumped on top of the Lady Badgers in the first period of play, but things were still close at the buzzer to end the first period. Poth had a 13-8 lead after eight minutes, but things certainly were nowhere near being over. Poth scored another 14 points in the second stanza, and Karnes City tacked on 10. The lead was growing for the Pirettes, and stood at 9 points at the break.

Poth nearly doubled its lead after the third period thanks to a 17-point scoring effort while once again holding the Lady Badgers to 10 points. The Pirettes then outscored Karnes City 15-12 in the final period of play to secure a solid 59-40 victory.

Senior Devon Dylla had one of her best games of the season, racking up 31 points for Poth. Amanda Wauters scored another 11. The win put the Pirettes at 6-1 in district play.

The boys then took the court for themselves, and the game was nearly as close as they come.

The teams matched efforts throughout the first period of play, and as the clock reached zero and the buzzer sounded, it was the visiting Pirates with a 1-point lead, 11-10. The near-stalemate continued into the second period as each team matched the other. The Badgers managed just 6 points in eight minutes, but so, too, did the Pirates, and the score stood at 17-16 as the teams headed for the locker rooms.

The score pace quickened in the third stanza, and Poth managed to slightly extend its lead. The Pirates scored 13 points, while holding Karnes City to 11, and the lead was 30-27 with just one period remaining.

Poth was held to just 8 points in the final period of play, and that would prove deficient of what was needed. Karnes City managed its best scoring period of the night, hanging 13 on the board, and securing a narrow 40-38 victory in regulation.

Kyler Felux once again led the Pirate offense with 22 points, followed by Brock Nelson with 8 points.

The narrow loss dropped the Pirates to 4-2 in district play, but Poth remains squarely in the hunt for a playoff spot tied with Nixon-Smiley for second place, and just one game behind district-leading Hallettsville. The Pirates will be in Nixon this Friday, Jan. 24, and will host Hallettsville next Tuesday, Jan. 28.
