POMEROY - It was a rough night for the Pomeroy boys basketball team as the Pirates fell 63-29 to Rosalia here Friday in a Southeast 1B District game.

"We stuck with them for a bit, and then they just started hitting 3s" said Pomeroy head coach Brian Koller. "We weren't hitting our shots, and they were. It was that simple."

The Spartans' Nathan Richards led all scorers with 20 points. Justin Ruark led the Pirates with eight points.

The game was knotted at 10 before Rosalia went on a spurt that put the game out of reach for Pomeroy (3-11, 2-7), which trailed 39-17 at the break.

"It was just a rough first half after the first few minutes," Koller said. "We just had a rough time matching up with them."

Pomeroy was plagued by eight Rosalia 3-pointers that sparked Rosalia's offensive attack.

"They hit a lot of big shots," Koller said. "It's tough to hang with a team when they shoot like that."
