LACROSSE — Pomeroy caused 38 turnovers and came home with a 46-17 victory over LaCrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus Saturday night in a Southeast 1B girls basketball contest.

Pomeroy (6-11 overall, 4-9 SE1B) hit just 27 percent of their shots on the night, but held L-W-K to 16.7 percent shooting from the field.

“We started out kind of slow,” Pomeroy coach Nettie Severs said. “Then we played with more intensity and put better full-court pressure on them and that led to some turnovers and easy transition buckets.”

Pirate Torri Koller led all scorers with 14 points on the night followed by Mackenzie Monahan with 13. Pomeroy outrebounded L-W-K 37-to-28.

On Friday night it was a similar story for Pomeroy, as it struggled on offense but held Liberty Christian to just 8-of-60 shooting from the field in a 32-22 SE1B victory.

“We struggled offensively in both games this weekend,” Severs said, “but we came out on top in two games this weekend, two games we had to win going into the postseason.”

Pomeroy visits Colton Tuesday.
