Nervous moments made no appearance in two regular season games between the Colton girls and Pomeroy.

They arrived, however fleeting, on the night of the district championship game, as the Pirates cut Colton's lead to four points, 40-36 with 1:08 left in the game.

Before this, Jordyn Moehrle drove to put Colton up 40-33 and then Dakota Patchen got surrounded for a shot-clock violation. Pomeroy hit a three-pointer and it was a game.

Patchen soon drove for a score to put Colton back up by six.

Pomeroy failed to answer and Patchen finished it off with two free throws for a 46-36 final.
