The 10 and one Dawson County Tigers (No. 3 Region 3AAA) traveled to Monroe to take on the undefeated Monroe Area Hurricanes (No. 1 Region 8AAA) in round two of the GHSA State Playoffs on Friday. Behind an extraordinary game from the leading rushing quarterback in the state, senior, Chandler Byron, the Hurricanes overwhelmed Dawson County on both sides of the ball and put an end to the Tigers’ season with a devastating 49 – 17 victory. Dawson County came into the game well prepared to face Byron, and it showed on the opening series of play as the front four of the Tigers led by seniors Zac Baloga and Jason Browning managed to push into the backfield and disrupt the Hurricanes early pass attempts. A series of penalties against the Tigers and a collection of missed tackles kept the drive alive for the Hurricanes and they finished off their opening drive with a 2-yard Byron score to take the early 7- 0 lead.
