OAKESDALE - Alexandria Overton scored 18 points as Tekoa-Oakesdale ended Pomeroy's regular season on a sour note here Friday in the Pirates Southeast 2B North Division girls finale.

The Pirates were locked into the North's No. 3 district seed regardless of the outcome of Friday's game, but it was not the way the Pirates wanted to head to district as T-O posted the 50-37 win.

"It was disappointing, as we only lost by two the last time we played," Pirates coach Nettie Severs said. "We didn't play as well as we're capable of."

HayLee Koller took a shot to the nose and picked up her third foul halfway through the second period, and had to sit the rest of the half and part of the third period as T-O stretched the lead to 28-21 at intermission.

"It hurt not having her in there," Severs said. "(But) we just got outplayed and outworked."

Koller and Melissa Bartlow led the Pirates with nine points each. Bartlow pulled down a team-leading eight rebounds. Sadie Slaybaugh handed out a game-high five assists.

The Pirates travel to the South's second seed DeSales Wednesday to open district play.

"Everybody starts at 0-0," Severs said of the upcoming district. "Everyone has the same shot. It depends on who shows up."
