Brady Tibbits commands a lot of attention.
Defenses around the SWAL tend to focus on stopping Tibbets in their pre-game planning.
On Friday against Bosco-bel, Tibbets did quite a bit of damage, rushing for a team-high 93 yards and one touchdown in Mineral Point' 45-6 SWAL win over the Bulldogs.
But it was John Schmitz who stole a bit of Tibbets' thunder, running for four touchdowns in the Pointers' victory.
Boscobel fell to 0-7 over-all with the loss, including a 0-5 mark in the SWAL. Mineral Point improved to 3-2 in conference play and 4-3 overall.
With the emotions of Homecoming spurring them on, the Bulldogs played stiff defense early on, but Schmitz broke through for the game's first score in the opening period.
Up 6-0, the Pointers scored again later in the quarter, when Tibbets scampered 25 yards for a touchdown.
Schmitz then tallied two more times in the second quarter as Mineral Point pulled away, scoring on runs of 19 and 14 yards. Quarterback Cody Bertram also hit pay dirt for Mineral Point in the second quarter, ripping off a 12-yard touch-down run.
Schmitz would cap off his big night with a 46-yard touchdown run, followed by a 30-yard scoring run by Nick Mohlmann.
For Boscobel, the Bull-dogs avoided a shutout when Chase Varvil plunged in from three yards out in the fourth quarter.
Varvil finished with a team-high 39 yards rushing. Tom Moravits completed four of 19 passes for 74 yards, including a big 47-yard strike to Zach Rich-ards.
For the game, Mineral Point rushed for 385 total yards on the night. The Pointers also had 13 first downs, as opposed to eight for Boscobel.
The Bulldogs did out gain Mineral Point through the air 74-40.
Next up for Boscobel is a trip to Riverdale on Satur-day.
