The Dawson County basketball program started the final week of the season when they hosted the Cherokee Bluff Bears for a 7-AAA regional game on Jan. 28. In two tough, physical games, both varsity teams held off their opponents to secure victory in front of the home crowd as the Lady Tigers won by a score of 58-52 and the Tigers surged late to win by the final of 66-58. Lady Tigers trail early Despite opening the game with 6 unanswered points, the Lady Tigers went ice cold from the floor and found themselves on the wrong side of a fast-paced Cherokee Bluff offense that responded by outscoring Dawson County over the first two periods to take a 26-24 lead into the locker room at halftime.
