POMEROY - Asotin jumped to a 24-14 halftime lead and maintained a five-point lead throughout the fourth quarter to hand Pomeroy's girls a 53-48 non-league basketball loss here Tuesday.

"We had a difficult time getting in sync on offense in the first half, especially the second quarter," Pirates coach Nettie Severs said. "Although we got plenty of good shots, we didn't shoot well.

"We made a few adjustments at half and were able to close Asotin's lead, getting within two at one point," she said. "Our pressure defense was effective causing turnovers, but in the half-court set we gave them way too many open 3-point shots. The girls played hard and I was pleased that they fought back into the game."

HayLee Koller led Pomeroy's effort with 21 points and eight rebounds. She also dished out four assists.

Cheyenne Nelson paced the Panthers with 15 points.

Pomeroy is now 1-1 on the season, and the Pirates host Colton at 6 p.m. Friday.
