Pirates lose season finale to Kamiah
One can hope the Prairie Pirates got their bad game out of their system before the District Tournament as Kamiah came up and whipped them 51-61 Friday, Feb. 13 on Senior Night at Cottonwood in a game that wasnít near as close as the final score.It looks like Kyle Holthaus got fouled on this shot attempt. He made one of the two free throws that followed.
Kamiah raced out to a 0-10 lead  as Prairie went scoreless for the first 4:22 of the game. 
Tyler Forsmann put the Pirates on the board with a jumper from the elbow but Kamiah answered that with another 6 straight points before Forsmann scored again for Prairie to make it 4-16 at the quarter break.
Kamiah didnít let up in the second quarter as junior guard Darian Ball added another three 3-pointers to the two he scored in the first quarter to lead Kamiah to a 9-35 lead with 2:23 left in the half. Ball hit 5 of his first 6 attempts from long range and had 16 first half points.
Prairie got a little momentum going into the halftime break as Branden Waller scored on an inbounds play with a second left and was fouled, converting the 3-point play to make it 14-36 at the half.
Prairie came out strong in the third quarter and held Kamiah to just a pair of free throws in the first 6 minutes as they outscored the Kubs 13-2. Eric Daly scored 4 of those points while David Sigler, who was held scoreless in the first half, scored 3.
That run got Prairie within 11 points at 27-38 which was as close as the Pirates would get until the final minute.
Kamiah broke out of their scoring drought to end the quarter 3-6 and take a 30-44 lead into the fourth.
Prairie couldnít gain any more ground on the Kubs in the fourth as they answered every Pirates score with points of their own.
