Fresh from capturing the championship hardware at the Tiger Tip-off Classic, the Dawson County Lady Tigers basketball team traveled Nov. 29 to take on the Flowery Branch High School Lady Falcons in a non-regional rematch of the season opener. Led by their inside duo of Caroline Wysocki and Ashley Woodruff, who each put up 15 points on the night, the Lady Falcons opened a commanding 14–2 lead in the first period and held to on to deliver the Lady Tigers their first loss of the season by a final score of 59–45. The Dawson County offense came to life just before half time with junior Marlie Townley finding success underneath the basket as fellow junior Sophia D’Oliveira and senior Kaylee Sticker added points from the free throw line. All three scored double digits on the night with Sticker leading the team at 12 points for the game.
