POTH -- In a basketball game that was essentially for the district title, the Poth Pirettes came up a tad short against the Hallettsville Lady Brahmas here last Tuesday evening.

Hallettsville won the first meeting between the two teams back on Jan. 3, and has held District 28-2A’s top spot ever since. That loss was the only blemish on Poth’s district record, and a Pirette win on Jan. 28 would have put the teams in a tie for the district’s top prize. Unfortunately for Poth, that did not happen.

In what was described as a “great heartbreaker,” the Pirettes and Lady Brahmas battled until the final buzzer, and it all began with a scoring frenzy from the opening tipoff. A total of 34 points were scored in the first eight minutes alone, and the home-standing Pirettes held the slight advantage at 18-16 at the buzzer. The scoring pace slowed slightly in the second period, but Hallettsville was able to take the lead away from Poth, and went into the locker rooms on top 31-30 at the break.

The Lady Brahmas once again held a slight scoring advantage in the third period, as Hallettsville outscored Poth 12-10 to make the lead 3 points. The back-and-forth then continued throughout the fourth period of play, and while the Pirettes did manage to outscore the Lady Brahmas by a point, they were a single basket short, and fell by the final score of 56-54.

Junior Dominique DeHoyos led the Poth offensive effort with 18 points on the night, followed by senior Devon Dylla with 16 points, and junior Amanda Wauters with 15. Justine Quintanilla was good for 3 points, and Shelby Yanta pitched in another 2.

Poth went on to face Stockdale on Friday, and skipped town with a 52-point victory. With Hallettsville’s Jan. 31 win over Schulenburg, the top two district spots are locked in.

Poth and Hallettsville could meet again, though, as both teams enter the playoffs. Earlier in the school year, Poth and Schulenburg split games during the regular volleyball season, but then met up again in the Region IV final.
