POMEROY - Pomeroy picked up its last regular-season win in Southeast 1B girls basketball, topping St. John-Endicott 48-37 and locking up second place in the league Saturday night.

"It's a great win for us," said Pomeroy coach Nettie Severs. "They beat us pretty bad up there the last time we played them, so it was really good to come out and change the game plan a little. We focused on their scorers and were able to play better defense."

The Pirates held St. John-Endicott leading scorer Ali Winters to eight points on the night. Winters scored 22 in the last matchup between the two schools.

"This was a huge, huge win for the girls," Severs said. "It's a great confidence boost. We didn't play well against Touchet last night, so it's nice to have the win tonight."

HayLee Koller led the Pirates with 20 points on the night. She picked up five steals and eight rebounds on the night.

The Pirates (8-3 in league, 14-3 overall) will host the winner of this week's game between the No. 3 and No. 6 seeds in the first round of playoffs Friday.
