Dawson County High School Head Coach Steve Sweat's Lady Tigers remain undefeated, 4-0, following an impressive offensive display in a 73-50 win over visiting Rabun County Dec. 2.

It was the second win in as many weeks over the Lady Wildcats from Tiger. On Nov. 21, Dawson County escaped with a narrow 48-43 victory.

Several Lady Tigers had a big night on the offensive end. Leading the way was Ashley Parker with 21 points and 14 rebounds.

Teammate Karlie Bearden may have had her best offensive input of the young season with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Lady Tiger Sheyenne Seabolt also scored in double figures with 12 points.

Rounding out the scoring for Dawson County was Haley Burgess with nine points, Jordan Moore and Katelynn Simpson with eight points each and Peytan Porter with three points.

Sweat's talented team got off to a great start and took a 19-9 lead after eight minutes of play. The Lady Tigers kept up the offensive pressure in the second quarter, despite getting outscored by Rabun 16-15, to take a 34-25 advantage at halftime.

Dawson County continued to get good looks in the last 16 minutes of play and outscored the Lady Wildcats 39-25 to come away with the 23-point victory.

"We made some really good passes tonight, which helped us get some real good shots. Those passes allowed us to get in good scoring positions," Sweat said.

The Lady Tigers are in for a busy week. Dawson County played its first Region 7-AAA game last night against a very tough East Hall team. The Lady Vikings came into the game with a 4-1 record. Scores were unavailable at press time.

This weekend Dawson County will play Union County (1-2) on Friday and Pickens County (3-3) on Saturday. Both games are at home with Friday's game beginning at 7 p.m. and Saturday's game at 6 p.m.

The Lady Tigers have already defeated both teams previously this season.
