After outscoring their first two opponents by a combined score of 18-0, the Dawson County Lady Tigers faced a step up in competition last week resulting in a 5-0 loss to Flowery Branch. “It exposes some things we got to work on,” Head Coach Chess Hamby said. “Playing a higher-level team like that makes you play a little bit faster than what we’ve seen before. Hopefully we can up our level of play and play at that speed.” It was a bit of a wake-up call for the Lady Tigers (2-1) who just couldn’t seem to generate a lot of pressure on Flowery Branch (6-0) on Feb. 20. The Falcons controlled the pace of play, gaining a large advantage in time of possession, forcing Dawson County to chase them, wearing the Lady Tigers out over the course of the game.
