Dawson County got off to slow start against the visiting East Hall Vikings on Oct. 4 and found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard at the beginning of the second quarter. At that point, trailing 12 – 10 with just over eight minutes until half-time, the Tigers found the gas pedal and reeled off 28 unanswered points to take command of the game on their way to a 52 – 34 victory. The rally started on Dawson’s first possession of the second quarter when sophomore quarterback Zach Holtzclaw dumped the ball to senior Dakohta Sonnichsen on a wide receiver screen. Starting from his own 43-yard line, Sonnichsen made two tacklers miss and then outran the Vikings down the sideline to put the Tigers in the lead for good.
