Playoff updates to come...

POTH -- Following a pair of playoff wins last week, the Poth Pirettes can add bi-district and area champions to this year’s résumé. The wins advance the Pirettes into regional play.

In a bi-district matchup Feb. 10, the Pirettes took the court against Johnson City, but had no trouble en route to a 74-31 victory. Poth had three players score in double digits, including seniors Devon Dylla and Justine Quintanilla. Dylla led the team with 18 points, followed by Quintanilla with 15. Shelby Yanta added another 10.

With the big win, the Pirettes cruised into the second round of playoff competition, where they were paired with the Lady Panthers of Anahuac. The Lady Panthers were a much better challenge for the Pirettes, and Anahuac forced Poth to play out all four periods.

The first period of play saw a lot of scoring and both teams pressed the pace and scored big points. The Pirettes held a slight lead after the first period, though, and took a 20-16 advantage into the second.

The Pirettes had a great second period, and while their scoring fell slightly, to 17 points, they held Anahuac to just 8 points and took a solid 37-24 lead into the break.

Following halftime, the Lady Panthers came out to play. Anahuac had its best scoring period of the game, throwing down 17 points, while holding Poth to 13. With the double-digit lead evaporated, the Pirettes went back to work in the fourth. The effort looked more like it was in the first period, and Poth outscored its opponent 20-12 to earn a dominating 70-53 victory.

Quintanilla led the Pirettes with 17 points, followed by Dylla with 15. Amanda Wauters scored 13 for Poth, and Dominique DeHoyos tossed in 12.

The win advanced Poth to the regional quarterfinals, and the team was scheduled to face Karnes City -- a fellow District 29-2A team. The game was scheduled for Feb. 17 at Stockdale High School, though results were unavailable as of press time. The winner of the game advances to the regional tournament in Seguin.
