After a disappointing loss to Gilmer County last week, the Lady Tigers rebounded with a win on Friday against neighboring rival Lumpkin County.

The game was close through the first two quarters, but Dawson County really poured it on in the second half.

The team scored 31 points after the intermission, while allowing just 16 from the Lady Indians to secure the 54-37 win.

It was only a two point game at the half, but we came out strong in the second half, said Dawson head coach Steve Sweat.

Sheyenne Seabolt scored a team high 14 points and collected four rebounds against Lumpkin.

Kim Wallace added nine points and three steals, Gilreath scored eight, Kenna Seitz tossed in seven points and grabbed four rebounds, and Costley scored six points and picked up five rebounds.

The Lady Tigers started the week on a sour note with a 62-56 loss on the road to Gilmer.

Despite being down by 15 points in the second half, Dawson fought back to within three in the fourth quarter.

We intentionally fouled to stop the clock but Gilmer made their free throws to come away with a victory, said Sweat.

Carly Gilreath and Kacie Bearden combined for 31 of the Lady Tigers 56 points, with 16 and 15 points respectively.

Bearden was on fire from behind the arc with five three pointers. Allie Costley and Ashley Parker contributed seven points each and Parker collected six rebounds.

The Lady Tigers next home game is Jan. 6 when the team hosts Rabun County.
