The Dawson County High School boys basketball team tacked on two more wins last week to improve to 8-1.

The Tigers started their week with a close win over Gilmer County on the road, 65-59.

Tyler Dominy led all scorers with 23 points, but two other Tigers also found their way into double digits, as Will Anglin added 12 and Bruce Clark contributed 11.

We played extremely well on the road in a game that stayed between 1-4 points most of the fourth quarter, said Coach Thad Burgess. We played in front of a full house at Gilmer and handled the pressure very well.

The Tigers hosted neighboring Lumpkin County and tallied their eight win in front of what Burgess said felt like... the biggest crowd to ever watch a home Dawson County game. We are getting tremendous support from our students and community.

Dawson walked away with a 14-point win, 57-43, in large part to a strong second half.

We were able to handle a bad first half with foul trouble and have a big fourth quarter to pull away with a big rival win, Burgess said. Im really proud of how we have played to this point. We are getting more contributions every game from more players.

Dominy was the top scorer again with 18 in the game against Lumpkin. Clark added 13, Lucas Pain scored 10 and Anglin tossed in eight.

The Tigers next home game is Jan. 6 when they host Rabun County.
