POMEROY — The Pomeroy boys basketball overcame a slow start as the Pirates beat Waitsburg-Prescott 67-62 on Saturday.

Pomeroy also beat Asotin 55-51 on Friday. Max Ruchert led the way with 16 points and 11 boards as four Pirates broke into double digits in scoring.

Against W-P, Pomeroy opened the game with an eight-point first quarter, before erupting for 26 points in the second frame.

“We had a 12-point lead at one point early in the fourth quarter and they chipped away,” Pomeroy head coach Brian Koller said. “They made some shots. Luckily we made enough free throws down the stretch to keep the lead. They were tough though. They’re a good ballclub.”

Tyson Feider led the way for the Pirates as he connected on three 3-pointers en route to a game-high 20 points. Chris Campbell finished with 16 points for Waitsburg-Prescott, including four 3-pointers.
