In a match-up featuring two teams from last year’s state tournament the Dawson County Lady Tigers hosted the Flowery Branch Lady Falcons on Nov. 15 to open the 2018 – 2019 season. “This team played in state last year,” said assistant coach Carly Anglin. “They’re a good team. It will be a good test.” The test started from the opening buzzer as the Lady Falcons, led by Caroline Wysocki and Ashley Woodruffe, came out with a fast-paced, aggressive style that forced a series of turnovers and quickly went on an 11 to 0 run against the Tigers in the first two-minutes of the opening period. After a quick time-out, the Lady Tigers returned to the floor and found their offense as senior Kaylee Sticker came open in the corner to sink the first of her six three-pointers of the contest.
