Blowouts have become the norm in the elementary girls 5-6 grade league, so it came as no surprise when Dibrell and Warren County Middle School won by double figures in their games Thursday night.The Dibrell Lady Wildcats moved to 5-0 this season with a 37-11 win over Centertown while Warren County made its move into a third-place tie with Irving College in the standings with a 35-20 beating of Boyd.Dibrell has made it a habit of winning big this year as the Lady Wildcats have won their five games by a combined score of 180-44. Stifling defense has been Dibrell’s calling card this year – having held two opponents to under five points in a game – and it was on display against Centertown Thursday.The Lady Wildcats built a 24-2 lead going into halftime as the Lady Warriors connected on only one shot in the first half – a layup by Ricki Valenta in the second quarter.Dibrell didn’t struggle on offense though. Rhealee Johnson scored all 11 of her points in the first half, including sinking a 3-pointer in the second quarter.
