Dominy hit a wide-open Will Anglin from 37-yards out to give the Tigers a 13-0 lead just before halftime. Pickelsimer added the point after.


Dawson went into the locker room with an insurmountable 14-0 advantage.


The junior varsity Tigers added another touchdown in the third quarter on a 67-yard run by Brandon Shaw. The point after was not good and Dawson held a 20-0 lead.
