POMEROY - After being buried by an avalanche of 3-point baskets on Friday night, turnovers derailed Pomeroy here Saturday as the Pirates suffered a pair of Southeast 1B District girls basketball defeats.

Colton sank nine shots from outside the arc in Friday's 65-37 victory over Pomeroy. Twenty-four hours later, the Pirates turned the ball over 30 as Rosalia pulled away to a 42-33.

The weekend defeats dropped Pomeroy's record to 0-2 in league counters and 1-3 overall. Pomeroy travels to Dayton Tuesday for a non-league rematch against the Bulldogs, who were 54-20 losers to the Pirates when the teams met Dec. 3 in Pomeroy.

Pomeroy fell behind Rosalia 18-5 after one quarter Saturday night, then fought back in the middle two quarters and trailed by just three points, 27-24, going into the game's final eight minutes. But the Spartans responded by outscoring Pomeroy 15-9 the rest of the way to secure the victory.

"Turnovers were the issue of the game for us," Pomeroy coach Nettie Severs said. "We had way too many unforced errors.

"We played well during the second and third quarters but had a difficult time in the fourth," she added.

HayLee Koller scored 17 points for Pomeroy and nearly matched Rosalia's Briann Maley, who took game scoring honors with 18 points. Mackenzie Reddish was also in double figures for Rosalia with 10 points and led the Spartans with six rebounds.

Koller snagged six rebounds for the Pirates, who won the board battle 26-20.

Colton heated up the Pomeroy gym on Friday night, led by Erin Weber's trio of 3-point baskets. Haylee Moser and Kaden Dahmen connected twice each from outside the arc and Jenna Moser and Kaitlin Druffel sank one 3-pointer each.

Ironically, Payton Meyer led the Wildcats' offensive attack with 13 points and Paige Vincent was also in double figures with 11 points.

Pomeroy's HayLee Koler made three 3-pointers and scored 14 points to lead all scorers. MacKenna Monahan added 10 points and Teri Koller drilled a pair of treys for the Pirates and finished with nine points.

"We played hard and Kept pace until late in the third quarter," Severs said. "We ran out of gas and sgtarted making poor decisions with the ball. But I was pleased with the effort."
