POMEROY — The three Pomeroy seniors celebrated Senior Night with a 62-50 victory over Colton here Saturday night.

Cody LaMunyan led the offensive charge with 25 points, while Max Ruchert chipped in nine and Riley Bott held Colton’s Dalton Patchen to 12 points.

The victory came a night after 46-28 loss at Garfield-Palouse.

“It was a decent offensive and defensive night after a tough loss to Gar-Pal the night before in Palouse,” Pirates coach Brian Koller said.

On Friday night, the Pomeroy defense kept the Pirates in the game, but they shot just 20 percent from the floor in the loss.

“Shooting 20 percent in Gar-Pal’s gym will not get you a win!” Koller said, although he was pleased with the overall effort.

The Pirates finished No. 2 in Southeast 1B League play, and host a District 9 1B semifinal game on Saturday.
