POMEROY - Pomeroy took a 22-19 lead going into the second half against LaCrosse-Washtucna Thursday night, but from there the TigerCats controlled, going 34-20 over the final half and knocking Pomeroy into the losers' bracket of the District 9 1B boys tournament, 53-42.

The Pirates had three break into double figures; Mitch Ruchert with 18 points, Matt FitzGerald with 11 and Riley Bott with 10; but the remainder of the Pirates were quiet with Cody Lamunyan's three points the only other contribution.

"In the second half they (LaCrosse-Washtucna) came out and started attacking our zone a little better," Pomeroy coach Brian Koller said. "They shot the ball really well in the second half, especially in the third quarter. ... They made their free throws in the fourth quarter."

Pomeroy faces the loser of Rosalia vs. St. John-Endicott in the first round of the losers' bracket Tuesday in Endicott.
