After dropping their first in-county game this season to Eastside on Tuesday night, the Morrison Eagles came back in force, defeating the visiting Dibrell Wildcats 54-24 on Thursday.As if to add an exclamation mark, Morrison’s Dawson Waldron made a half-court statement with a buzzer-beater to end the contest. It was the second trey Waldron made in the fourth quarter.“We had a player out and didn’t play our usual game Tuesday,” said Morrison coach Kyle Cannon. “Sometimes it takes a loss to shock the team out of their complacency and now we’re back.”With Ryland Holder back in the game but still nursing a broken finger, Kason Holder held nothing back as he worked the paint and scored from every direction.
