A classic game between two equally skilled teams took place recently at Dawson County Middle School.

The Mountain League Championship on March 28 between Dawson County and Riverview middle schools fares well for the future of soccer in Dawson County.

Both teams split during the regular season and an inevitable rematch decided the champion.

Coach John Lundy and his Lady Eagles and Coach Jessi Crane and her Lady Tigers fought hard during the first half, but the score stood a 0-0 at halftime.

Dawson County finally broke the dry spell with 15:32 left in the game off the foot of Brooke Cagle.

Three minutes later, Lady Tiger Lydia Blythe scored Dawson's second goal to give them a 2-0 advantage.

It was all Crane's team needed as the final buzzer sounded and her team jumped for joy.

"The championship game was an awesome game between two great teams. Riverview fought hard. My girls worked hard all season and they deserve this victory," Crane said.

Lundy said he was also proud of the way his team played.

"The girls played as hard as they have all season, but sometimes you face a better opponent. Dawson is a great team and deserved to win that game," Lundy said.
