The Dawson County Lady Tigers came away with a big road win last week in Roswell when it took down Blessed Trinity on Dec. 5.
“We did jump out to an early 8-0 lead before Blessed Trinity made a run on us,” said Head Coach Steve Sweat.
The Lady Tigers held a 16-7 lead after the first period on its way to a 56-52 win despite Kaylee Sticker leaving in the third quarter with a sprained ankle.
Sweat said that the Lady Tigers were able to do what was needed to get the win against a tough Blessed Trinity squad.
“We had some defensive let downs on their two best players,” Sweat said. “We need to take better care of the ball and play smarter defense when we are leading in the fourth quarter. Just glad to get the win.”
Dawson took a 32-26 lead into the half and both teams put up 10 points in the third. Although Blessed Trinity made a final push in the last period outscoring Dawson 16-14, the Lady Tigers held on for the win.
Sticker led all scorers with 16 points and Anna Lowe added 12.
Abi Chatham had 10 points on the night.
The win moves the team to 4-1 overall.
