The Tigers showed their ability to put points on the board in two high-scoring games over the weekend.

In Friday and Saturdays games, the Dawson County High School boys squad scored a whopping 178 points.

Friday, the team clashed with Tech High, of Atlanta, and dominated scoring more than 20 points in each quarter and ending with triple digits on the scoreboard, with a 100-29 win.

Dawsons Tyler Dominy and Lucas Pain were key in the win against the Titans, with 23 and 20 points respectively.


Dawson continued to roll on Saturday in their second meeting of the year against Towns County, this time on the road.

Dawson jumped out to a large lead at the half, 35-16, and continued to build on it after the intermission.

The Tigers tacked on 43 more points in the second half to walk away with a decisive win, 78-42.

Dawson moved the ball well in this one, with five scorers breaking into double digits.

Pain and Dominy lead the way again with 17 and 13 respectively; Will Anglin and Jackson Putnam scored 12 points each; and Bruce Clark added 11.


Earlier this week the Tigers picked up their first loss of the season in a close game against Fellowship Christian.

The team fell behind in the first half, down eight at the break, and fell just short of a big comeback, losing 44-41.

After not playing very well on Tuesday in Roswell, we came back and played much better over the weekend, said coach Thad Burgess. Offensively we shot much better and finished more plays. It was nice to see five players score in double figures at Towns on Saturday.

This Friday the team will renew its rivalry with neighboring Lumpkin County High School.

We hope that everyone comes out to fill up the Ford this Friday as we face a long-time rival, Burgess said.

Varsity games begin at 7 p.m. at DCHS.
