With the Sub-region title on the line, the number-four ranked Dawson County varsity girls soccer squad went on the road into a hostile environment and pulled off a huge win last week.
Taking on their biggest rival, sixth-ranked Union County, the Lady Tigers continued their dream season with a 1-0 victory.
Sophomore Brooke Duffy scored the only goal of the game after just one and a half minutes of play, with the assist by Mckay Schively.
Dawson head coach Jed Lacey observed that moving Duffy up top to the striker position along with Shively has paid off for the Lady Tigers.
She can use her speed so much more up top, Lacey said of Duffy, who has seven goals this season and six in the last three games.
Brooke and Makay can use both feet, which is huge when you get close to the net, Lacey continued.
The coach also credited junior outside midfielder Allie Costley with helping Dawson control the outside of the field.
Allie gives you everything she has every minute she is on the field, said Lacey, We are a better team when Allie is out there.
With the victory over Union, Dawson County improved to a record of 10-2 overall and 4-0 in the Region.
