'Roaders have their way with Warriors

January 06, 2011|By CURT HORNBECKER | Staff Correspondent

BOONSBORO — Standing side by side, Tyler Dabbs and Ian Fisher looked like Mutt and Jeff. But against the Boonsboro basketball team, they played more like David and Goliath.

After Fisher used his size and strength inside for eight first-quarter points, Dabbs followed with five straight 3-point missiles as Brunswick clubbed the Warriors 61-35 in an MVAL Antietam contest Thursday night.

Dabbs, the sixth man for Brunswick (5-5, 2-3), which was missing two starters due to illness, scored all of his game-high 17 points within a five-minute span in the second period, propelling a 21-10 Railroaders run to put the game out of reach early.

Dabbs’ performance came as a pleasant surprise to Brunswick coach Dan McLane.

“What we’ve been talking to him about is to keep the ball off the floor, set his feet and shoot,” said McLane. “He made me look pretty smart tonight.”

Meanwhile, first-year Boonsboro coach Skip Chambers is looking for signs of improvement.

“We’ve just got so much work to do,” said Chambers. “It’s a system that takes a while to learn. But I see improvements. We just have to put it all together, and one of these nights we will.”

The Railroaders made certain early that Boonsboro (3-6, 0-5) wouldn’t put it all together at their expense, rolling to a 13-3 advantage before the Warriors hit their first field goal at the 3:32 mark of the first period.

After Boonsboro’s Kurtis Lowery hit one of two from the line to open the second quarter, Dabbs took over, and the Brunswick lead ballooned to 38-15 with 2:11 left, before settling for a 40-19 lead at the half.

A 10-0 run, which began late in the third period, pushed the margin to 30 points with 5:58 remaining in the game, as Boonsboro went scoreless for nearly seven minutes.

Despite that dry spell, the Warriors were outscored only 21-16 in the second half.

JV: Boonsboro, 46-36 (Br: Blaine Price, 11; Bo: Scott Bennett 15).
