The cold weather Monday night didn’t close schools Tuesday, although there was a white-out at Dibrell Elementary as it was eighth-grade night, and the school celebrated with a blizzard of tissue when Bryson Elrod scored the first 2 points of the game.
The entire roster of the Dibrell Wildcats scored, as they played host to the Irving College Tigers. With all those players posting points, it’s tough to mount a defense, and after four quarters the Wildcats drive commanded a 54-13 victory.
“It was eighth grade night,” said Dibrell head coach Dustin Curtis. “We came ready to roll. It was a great chance for Irving College to play up and a good tune up for Centertown. I was really proud of the team.”
To say anyone led the offense for Dibrell would be a misnomer as Irving College’s Abram Stinson had the game-high score of 8 points. Dibrell had 17 players to post points.
Leading 39-4 at the half with Irving College’s points coming from the charity stripe set the tone and tempo for what was to follow as Irving College couldn’t dig out of the deficit of the first two quarters.
Other Irving College scorers were Riley Wanamaker with 3 points and Gavin Hobbs and Wesley Williamson each scored 1 point.
Scoring for Dibrell were Will Wrisner and Bryson Elrod with 6 points each, Cameron Chilcutt and Jake Jones both with 5, Trevor Womack, Cooper Titsworth and Nathan Elrod each had 4, Jordan Sandlin 3, Rheagan Woodlee, Aaron Ashburn, Hagen Stewart, Caleb Wood, Caden Davis, Tyler Heathcock, Matthew Young and Landon Morris all had 2 points apiece, and Johnnie Fults hit for 1 point.
