Shooting woes continue for Pirate girls

POMEROY — Pomeroy’s season-long shooting woes continued here Saturday in Southeast 1B girls basketball action.

The Pirates trailed 41-15 after three quarters before scoring 17 fourth-quarter points, but it wasn’t enough as St. John-Endicott had enough to weather the Pirate run and emerge with a 48-32 win.

“We worked harder than the last time we played them,” Pirate coach Nettie Severs said. “We got good shots. We’re just having trouble putting the ball in the hole.”

Savannah Ruark led the Pirates with nine points, and also grabbed a team high eight rebounds.

Emily Jentz and Torrie Koller each scored seven, but their efforts could not overcome a 10-of-59 shooting night from the field.

On Friday, the Pirates put up 80 shots from the floor. Unfortunately, only 15 of those found the bottom of the net as Tekoa-Oakesdale pulled out a 41-36 win.

“We got good shots,” Severs said. “We just couldn’t put the ball in the hole.”

Ruark led the Pirates with nine points.

Pomeroy hosts Asotin in a non-league battle Tuesday.
