Head Coach Wes Greer’s junior varsity Tigers basketball team lost for the first time this season, 35-31, Jan. 19 against Jackson County.

 

The Tigers held a strong 18-9 lead at halftime.

 

Jackson rebounded in the second half and capitalized on Tigers turnovers and missed shots to take a 25-19 lead after three quarters of play.

 

The Panthers continued to make shots in the final quarter to come away with the 4-point win.

 

“We just lost our intensity and focus for a few minutes,” Greer said. “It cost us a win. We outscored them in every quarter but the third and still lost.”

 

Jonathan Sanderson led the Tigers in scoring with 10 points.

 

Dawson bounced back on Friday with a win over Union County before losing its second game of the season on Saturday at Gilmer County. Results were not available as of press time on those two games.

 

The Tigers are currently 7-2 overall on the season.
