Poolville sweeps Perrin in Homecoming Night celebration


POOLVILLE — Homecoming night was a successful one for both the Monarch and Lady Monarch basketball squads Friday, with both teams picking up wins over Perrin High.

Girls: Poolville 54, Perrin 47

The Lady Pirates kept this match close throughout but Poolville (3-1 district, 12-10 overall) led from wire to wire to take sole possession of second place in District 11-A.

Baskets by sophomores Tracy Johnson and Katie Cumbie staked Poolville to a 4-0 lead in the first minute. Senior post Kallie Dobbs added five first quarter points as the Lady Monarchs took a 17-11 lead after one.

Johnson, who led Poolville with 17 points, drained her second three-pointer of the night early in the second quarter to build the lead into double figures. Perrin missed its first 11 shots from the floor in the quarter but managed to close with a three-pointer and bucket by Taryn Cox in the final minute to draw within 28-22 at the break.

With the Lady Monarchs having their worst shooting quarter of the game, the deficit was cut to 35-34 late in the third, forcing Poolville Coach Kelly Pae into a timeout. The respite worked, as Johnson had buckets on the next two possessions to extend the lead to 39-34.

Perrin used free throws to draw within two midway through the fourth but free throws from Alexia Villa and Dobbs padded the cushion back to nine with just more than two minutes left and Poolville hung on from there to remain a game back of district frontrunner Santo.

Pae said he liked the way his squad was able to hang on in a very physical battle.

We always expect a battle with Perrin and we sure got one tonight,” Pae said. “Despite some rough play, we held on. Hopefully good things will continue in district, as we start the second round on Tuesday.”
