The Dawson County High School softball team struggled in the early season with errors in the field, but that is no longer the case and the Lady Tigers earned a win on the road against Union County last week. Dawson traveled to Union on Sept. 14 and won 3-1 before making up their East Hall game on Sept. 16. The Lady Tigers lost that outing 4-1. “Last Thursday we went up to Union and beat them 3-1. It was a well played game by both sides,” said Coach Jimmy Pruett. “We played really great defense. Our defensive play has really changed our season. We are making the routine plays now. We are giving ourselves a chance to win now.”
