POMEROY — Pomeroy’s boys were outscored 17-8 in the fourth quarter here Friday night as Liberty Christian won the Southeast 1B League matchup, 39-34.

On Saturday, the Pirates’ shooting woes continued in a 50-38 league loss to Lacrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus.

Friday night, Pomeroy led 19-17 at halftime and held a four-point lead headed into the final eight minutes before the Patriots made their run.

Tanner Feider led the Pirates with 10 points in the game, with Riley Bott putting up eight.

“The Pirates played passively and did not shoot particularly well from the perimeter against Liberty Christian’s zone defense,” Pomeroy coach Brian Koller said. “We have got to be more aggressive and attack zones and hit some perimeter shots.

“I have to give Liberty Christian credit, because they hit some big shots in the fourth quarter to win the game.”

On Saturday, the Pirates fell behind early and never recovered. Lacrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus had a 26-11 halftime lead and cruised to the victory.

Bott’s 14 points highlighted the Pirates’ effort.

“The Pirates’ shooting struggles continued in the first half as they fell behind by as many as 20 points,” Koller said. “We battled in the second half, but jsut couldn’t get the lead down to single digits. We played hard until the end, for which the coaching staff was proud.”

Pomeroy next heads to Colton on Tuesday.
