Boys’ soccer falls to GAC

After going 2-0 the previous week, the Tigers took a stumble on the road last week against Greater Atlanta Christian, falling 3-0 Friday night in Norcross.

After opening up region play with a 1-0 win over Union County Feb. 27 followed by a 2-1 win March 2 against West Hall, the Tigers were set to travel to Jefferson to take on the Dragons but due to the weather and unsafe field conditions, that game was cancelled meaning Dawson County would have to wait a week without a game before facing region foe GAC.

The Tigers trailed the Spartans 1-0 at the half but were able to build up several good attacks against GAC on March 9, according to Head Coach Derek Waters.

Goalkeeper Braden Davison was able to keep the Tigers in it for most of the game, but the Spartan attack was able to break through late in the contest to score twice more for the 3-0 win.

“(Davison) had several great saves to keep us in the game,” Waters said. “But unfortunately, we were never able to find the goal on any of (our) attacks.”

The Tigers have been shutout in two of their three losses this year (GAC and Flowery Branch) and drop to 3-3 and 1-1 in Region 7-AAA on the season.

Dawson County will look to rebound with games against North Hall, Northwest Whitfield and Darlington High School this week. All three games are on the road where the Tigers currently have an 0-2 record.
