Rivalry games have always provided some of the most intense moments in sports and the Dec. 18 game between the Dawson County Lady Tigers and the Lumpkin County Lady Indians was no exception. Battling to the absolute last second of overtime, the Lady Tigers held off the hard-charging Indians by a final score of 58–55 in a game that featured two aggressive defenses and white-knuckle moments from buzzer to buzzer. In the face of tight man-to-man defense, it took over a minute for the Lady Tigers to put points on the board in the first period until senior Kaylee Sticker found an opening in the corner to sink a long, arcing shot for 3 points.
