OAKESDALE, Wash. - The Pomeroy Pirates fell to Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia in three sets Tuesday, 25-14, 25-19 and 25-19.
The loss dropped Pomeroy to 6-5 in Southeast 1B and followed a two-match winning streak.
"They're a very good team," Pomeroy coach Bruce Crossfield said. "It was a little frustrating because last Thursday we played our best match of the year and yesterday we went up there and had trouble serving and things like that."
Crossfield said much of the loss was due to unforced errors on the Pirates behalf.
"They just took it to us pretty good," he said. "We were with them up to 12 points in the second set and led for a while in the third, but we couldn't sustain it.
"We'll regroup," he said. "We've been kind of progressing on schedule and now we go home and we can get back on track."
Delaney and McKenzie Monahan led the Pirates with six kills each.
The Pirates host Touchet Thursday at 6 p.m.
