ASOTIN - Pomeroy's Savannah Ruark scored 12 points and McKenzie Uto 11, but it wasn't enough for the Pirates as they fell to Asotin Tuesday, 57-43, in Southeast 1B-2B interleague play.

The Pirates (3-6 SE1B, 5-10 overall) made a 24-point, fourth-quarter rally, but had a 42-19 deficit going into the final frame.

"It was just a tough game all around for us," Pomeroy coach Nettie Severs said. "We didn't play very well, we had a hard time putting the ball in the hole. The second and the fourth quarter we did OK, but we just didn't click.

"They played better than us," she said. "We didn't seem to be working together very well offensively and defensively."

The Pirates host Garfield-Palouse Friday at 6 p.m.
