POMEROY — Pomeroy’s boys basketball team followed a 51-43 victory over Touchet Friday night with a 64-46 loss to Colton at home Saturday.

“The Pirates showed signs of fatigue throughout this game, and it cost them against a good team like Colton,” Pomeroy coach Brian Koller said after Saturday’s loss. “We seemed a step ehind or a step slow all game. Colton’s two big scorers proved they can carry their team and we just didn’t get it done defensively or on the boards.”

As for Southeast 1B League foe Touchet, “Playing at Touchet always presents problems for whoever plays there, but our boys were able to slowly build a one-point halftime lead and eventually get up by 12 in the fourth (quarter) to seal the victory,” Koller said.

“Once we started controlling the boards, the game swung in our favor and we did a pretty good job of taking care of the basketball throughout the game.”

Tyson Feider was 10-for-11 from the foul line in the game as “he did a fine job of handling the point guard spot,” Koller said.

Riley Bott’s 16 rebounds were “his finest effort in that area this season,” he said.

The Pirates next host Pomeroy Thursday.
