Poolville sweeps Perrin in Homecoming Night celebration


Dobbs had 11 points and Cumbie 10 for the Lady Monarchs. Scarlet Bowen led Perrin with 19 points.

Boys: Poolville 86, Perrin 17

The Monarchs had all the points they would need in the first four minutes but would score a bunch more in remaining perfect in district play.

Poolville (3-0 district, 20-6 overall) converted 8 of its first 10 shots from the floor to take command. Taylor King’s five points and a pair of inside buckets from Jonathan Arbuckle, who would later be crowned Homecoming king, led the charge. 

Poolville’s shooting would cool off, scoring just six points the rest of the quarter as Coach Steven Stegall began inserting reserves. Senior Alex Rodriguez closed the quarter strong with a pair of baskets to help Poolville finish the quarter with 50 percent shooting. Perrin (0-3, 1-13) got on the board late in the frame, but still found itself down 24-3 after one.

With Poolville doing much of its damage on the inside early, the Monarchs opened things up with three pointers from King and Casey McCleery in the second. Rodriguez added three more baskets in the quarter to extend the lead to 43-9 at the half.

Rodriguez took control in the second half, scoring 20 of his game-high 31 points in the final two frames. Perrin, which missed its final nine shots from the floor, would shoot just 20 percent for the game (7-35). Poolville, on the other hand, converted 32 of 64 floor attempts for a 50 percent shooting night.

Even with the win, Stegall said he saw things to improve on.

This wasn’t a normal game day for us, with only having a half day of school with exams and Homecoming and everything, so we weren’t as sharp as we have been the last few games,” Stegall said. “It was still a good effort from the guys, though. We were a bit sloppy defensively.”

King added 11 points for Poolville with Colton Jack and Dakota Bobbitt contributing nine points each.

Both teams remain home Tuesday vs. Chico.
