TYRONE — The Tyrone Bobcats dominated the overmatched Lobos from the opening tip, holding Yarbrough without a field goal until the final minute of the half on their way to a 71-19 romp.

" We needed this game to get some confidence back," said Bobcats coach Clay Witt. "It came at a good time, and it just feels good to get back in the win column."

And there was good reason for the Bobcats to feel good. Turnovers created by their full-court pressure turned into easy buckets in the paint and frequent trips to the free throw line that lead to a 24-3 first quarter lead.

Coach Witt liked the teamwork he saw from his team that saw 12 different players score at least one point.

"The unselfishness - I liked that, they looked to spread the ball around."

The Bobcats weren't finished, going on an 11-0 run to start the second quarter and increase their lead to 35-3 before Yarbrough scored 5 in the final minute of the half.

Even with the opponents' final tally at 19, Coach Witt is not satisfied with where his team's defense is.

"Our defense has got a long ways to go, but I feel like we are getting there."

Tyler Lai led the Bobcats with 12 points. Jacob Williams and Adan Lomas scored 10 each, and Travis Shield added 8.
