PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL Pirate girls respond to loss to Colton with win over Rosalia

Advertisement

ROSALIA - Colton girls basketball had little trouble with Pomeroy, jumping out to a 27-6 first-quarter lead before cruising in a lopsided Friday game, but the Pirates bounced back on Saturday to get a 36-29 win over Rosalia and end their weekend on the road with a win.

Colton's McKenzie Heaslett led the Wildcats with 15 points and eight rebounds. Mollie Kramer and Grace Druffell also scores in double figures. Payon Meyer added eight rebounds.

Karlie Martin had half of Pomeroy's scoring output with 14 points Friday night.

After struggling to control a run-and-gun Colton team, Pomeroy's defense locked in on Saturday and shut down Rosalia, holding the team to just 11 points in the first half. The win was Pomeroy's third on the year versus just one loss.

HayLee Koller led the team with 14 points, including a pair of threes as a 21-11 halftime spread stood up.

"We played a little slow," said Pomeroy head coach Nettie Severs. "You can tell the girls are getting a little tired, but that's just a testiment to how hard they are playing that they were able to grit these games out. It wasn't pretty, but it worked."
