SEGUIN -- She was hoping for a trip to the state tournament, but after falling to Cole in the region semifinals, Poth Head Coach Amanda Hemby and her Pirette basketball team will have to wait and try again next year.

The Pirettes, who finished second in District 28-2A, blew through the first two rounds of the playoffs, but were challenged last week, and came up a few points short at the region tournament.

Poth clashed with fellow district opponent Karnes City last Monday in the region quarterfinals. The Pirettes came out strong in the first period, and opened up a 20-8 advantage. The Lady Badgers put together a good second-period effort, however, outscoring Poth 20-16, making it a 36-28 game at the midway point.

Things slowed down in the third, and while Karnes City scored 11 points, Poth dropped in 12. The pace quickened in the final period of the game, and the Lady Badgers once again outscored the Pirettes, but it was too little, too late, as Poth locked up the 65-57 victory.

The win meant Poth would have to play Cole, one of the state’s top-ranked teams. Cole was 38-1 on the season, but the Cougars’ record didn’t mean much to the Pirettes.

Poth jumped on top of Cole to start things off, and held a slight 11-8 lead after the first eight minutes of play. Cole came back to outscore Poth in the second, and took a 23-21 lead at halftime.

Poth got back one of the points in the third, outscoring Cole 11-10 to make it a 1-point game. The Cougars came back strong in the final period, however, once again outscoring Poth 15-10, and securing a 48-42 victory.

Dominique DeHoyos led the team with 15 points, followed by Justine Quintanilla with 8 points, and Amanda Wauters with 7. Devon Dylla tossed in 4 points, Taylor Lipscomb and McKayla Maha scored 3 points each, and Shelby Yanta scored 2 points.

The Pirettes end their season with an overall record of 18-12. The team finished 10-2 in district play behind the state-bound team from Hallettsville. Poth will have major holes to fill next season, as they try and replace players such as Quintanilla and Dylla -- the team’s leading scorer.
