POMEROY — This one wasn’t over until it was over.

St. John-Endicott had the ball trailing Pomeroy 51-50 with time running out here Saturday in Southeast 1B boys basketball action.

The Eagles got a look, but it didn’t go, Cody LaMunyan grabbed the rebound for the Pirates, and Pomeroy ran out the clock to take a 51-50 win.

The Pirates found themselves in a 21-16 hole, thanks to a four-point second period, after the first 16 minutes, but cut the lead to 36-32 after three and outscored St. John-Endicott 19-14 in the final period to earn the one-point win.

“We went to a smaller line up to start the third,” Pirate coach Brian Koller said. “That got us back in the game. It was a game of streaks. They would get five or six ahead and we would catch up.”

Tanner Feider led the way for the Pirates with an 18-point effort. Riley Bott chipped in 13 as the Pirates improved to 8-2 in the SE1B race.

On Friday, the Pirates used a 22-8 second-quarter run to bolt to a 36-15 halftime lead over Tekoa-Oakesdale, and Pomeroy coasted home with a 62-24 win.

Tanner Feider again led the way with 15 points. Cole Mayfield hit for 14.

The Pirates, 11-2 on the year, host Asotin Tuesday in a non-league game.
