It took all seven innings but the Dawson County Lady Tigers softball team held on to win the first round tie-break game against the Fannin County Rebels by a final score of 7–5 on Oct. 1. The victory not only advanced the team to the regional finals, where they will face the East Hall Vikings, but also marked the capstone of an epic four-game series with Fannin County. The final game of the regular season took place on Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Fannin County. The teams took to the field knowing they would play again in the first round of the tournament; they just didn’t know where the game would be played. The winner of this game would have home field advantage and both teams played hard for that advantage.
