Pirates beat Touchet in shootfest

 

February 6, 2020



TOUCHET–The tenacious Touchet Indians relented in the second half as the Pirates shot prolifically and capitalized on the rebound put-back for a 55-45 league win here Saturday night.

The Buccaneers are now 5-6 in district play, 5-13 on the season, and are in fourth place behind Prescott with an 8-3 record and with Oakesdale and Gar-Pal tied for first with 9-1 records. (The teams meet Feb. 8 in Palouse.)

Pomeroy has one more regular-season game against Garfield-Palouse Friday, February 7.

“We were able to get a road victory with great effort on the boards,” said Head Coach Chris Wolf.

The Pirates put up 73 offerings in the game and Byron Stallcop hooked many of them for offensive put-backs.

“Even though we didn’t shoot it well, we were able to score off of offensive boards,” Wolf said. “Byron Stallcop led the way with 22 points and was a force on the offensive boards. We were able to create more turnovers in the second half and this was when we were able to establish a little bit of a gap.

The Indians took the lead 15-12 after one quarter but the Pirates edged ahead 25-22 by halftime. The third quarter was basically a draw, Pomeroy popping in 13 points to Touchet’s 12, then the fourth quarter was where the Bucs got a boost and finished with the 10-point lead.

Along with Stallcop, Trent Gwinn chipped in 11, Evan Bartels scored 10 and Danner Maves made 9. Touchet’s Dominic Preciado led with 17 points.

In spite of a 30-point game by Gwinn, the Pirates played flat and couldn’t counter the Prescott Tigers’ hustle, especially in the second quarter, where the Tigers outscored the Bucs 22-9 for a 40-20 lead.

“Gwinn had 30 points tonight and played extremely hard,” Wolf said. “We got outplayed in every facet of the game tonight. Prescott wanted it more and outworked and outhustled us, especially in the first half.

“We gave up 24 points in the first half on second chance points and off of turnovers,” he noted. “We gave up 33 points to Jonathon Cardenas. He was really efficient shooting 12-17 from the field. We just didn’t guard him at all tonight.”
