A week after a disappointing 47-14 loss to region foe North Hall, Dawson County will turn its attention to a very familiar opponent this Friday.
In Dawsons game last week versus North Hall, the outcome was not what Tigers fans expected.
The Trojans quieted the home crowd with a touchdown just four minutes into the game and proceeded to find the endzone on their first five possessions to jump out to a 34-0 lead.
But Dawson was able to put together a scoring drive to close out the first half. A reception by junior wide receiver Chris Sayler gave the Tigers a first down and goal with eight seconds remaining.
Taking matters into his own hands, senior quarterback Tyler Dominy then took off toward the corner of the endzone and dove over the North Hall defenders for the touchdown.
But the Trojans running game was soon back in business with a 90-yard touchdown drive to begin the second half to go up 40-7.
On the next Dawson possession, Sayler hauled in a 46-yard completion down to the North Hall 26-yard line, but the Tigers were prevented from further progress and the Trojans took over.
In the closing minutes, Dawson tacked on one more score as senior Mitchell Putnam caught a long touchdown pass and raced into the far corner of the endzone for a 47-14 final score.
The Tigers will return to acton by traveling to Homer, Ga. to battle Banks County at 7:30 p.m.
