The Dawson County High School Tigers are still undefeated after two solid wins.

Friday night the Tigers hosted Gilmer County and walked away with a 55-48 win.

The Tigers jumped out to an early lead - 15-6 - in the first quarter and maintained that margin for most of the game.

Tyler Dominy contributed nearly half of Dawsons points with 24. Camron Chester added 10, Will Anglin scored nine points, Jonathan Sanderson added six, Lucas Pain scored four and Bruce Clark chipped in two.

Dawson also picked up a road win over White County last week, 38-24. The game proved to be quite the defensive struggle. Dawson only managed double digits in the second and third quarters and White County never managed to score more than seven in a quarter.

Dominy led the way again for Dawson with 16 points.

This was a great week for us, said coach Thad Burgess. Our effort and intensity was really good in road win at White County and against a very good Gilmer team at home on Friday. Our young players since we lost four starters off last years team have really done well and are adjusting to this level.

We have a long way to go but I am very pleased with our progress defensively, he said.

Tuesday the team traveled to play Fellowship Christian, results of that game were not available at presstime. Friday they will be back at home for Park and Recreation night and will hit the road again for Towns County on Saturday.
