POMEROY - Pomeroy's girls basketball team controlled the tempo early and dominated Asotin in the first half to snag a home victory in a make-up game for what should have been the team's season opener, 54-40 Wednesday.

The game, which was originally scheduled for Nov. 30, was previously snowed out.

Pomeroy pulled out to a first-quarter lead, but a 17-6 second quarter proved to be the decisive blow.

"I'm very pleased with how we played," Pomeroy head coach Nettie Severs said. "Everyone played hard, especially on the defensive end, which is good to see."

Offensively the Pirates were led by 15 points apiece from HayLee Koller and Karlie Martin, while Melissa Bartlow hauled in 12 rebounds to lead a 12 rebound edge for Pomeroy on the glass.

"We were able to get far enough ahead that we were able to work in some different players," Severs said. "We got a little lax in the fourth, but I think that was more that the players we had out there weren't as familiar playing with each other."

A big test awaits Pomeroy on Friday when the Pirates face perennial power Colton on the road.

"We know they are going to bring pressure, and we are going to need to really focus on our ball handling," Severs said. "It's going to be tough, but if we can control the ball then we feel like we can hang in there."
