POMEROY - Pomeroy came out of the locker room hitting on all cylinders in Southeast 1B girls basketball action Saturday night.

The Pirates raced to a 22-6 lead after one, and Tekoa-Oakesdale never recovered in the 51-35 win.

Pomeroy improved to 9-3 in league and 15-3 overall with the win.

"We had a really good first quarter," Pirate coach Nettie Severs said. "We lost the feel and didn't have the same intensity in the second and third. The cushion we built in the first was enough, and we got good balance (scoring)."

The Nighthawks' Alex Overton led all scorers with 14 points.

The Pirates had two in double digits and a third that just missed. Melissa Bartlow and Karlie Martin led the way with 12 points each. HayLee Koller finished with nine.

Bartlow, with 12 boards, and Koller, with 10 rebounds, led the Pirates to a 44-23 edge on the glass. Pomeroy dished out 18 assists with Martin handing out seven.

The Pirates travel to Touchet Friday and will host St. John-Endicott in a probable match for second place on Saturday in the regular-season finale. Pomeroy must win Friday and St. John-Endicott must lose to Colton Friday to set up the battle for second Saturday.
