WHITEWRIGHT — The Van Alstyne boys put a thrashing on Whitewright in their victory, 100-48, in an away district match up on Friday, Dec. 15.
The Panthers had an offensive clinic against Whitewright, scoring over 20 points in three of the four quarters played. Huge offensive nights for Van Alstyne’s Noah Boling and Samuel Tormos played a large part in the dominating night for the Panthers.
Boling finished the game with 28 total points, while 18 of his points came from the six shots he sunk from deep behind the 3-point line.
Tormos finished the night with 24 total points, proving to be a reliable shooter from inside the paint, sinking nine of those total shots.
Van Alstyne finished the night with four players scoring over 10 points — which combined with the consistent offensive play from the starters and the bench, gave Whitewright little to no chance of keeping up in the Van Alstyne dominated game.
Whitewright would only have one player, senior Dylan Pitt, who ended the night with a double-digit 13 points. The aggressive play of Van Alstyne would be what gave the Whitewright Tigers 11 of their 48 total points, coming from free-throw shots caused by Van Alstyne fouls.
The victory puts Van Alstyne at 1-0 in district play. The Panthers hope to continue their success in play against the Anna Coyotes on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
