Neither boys or girls team could score a goal in their region matches against Cherokee Bluff on Friday, March 5. 

The Lady Tigers were mercy-ruled 10-0 with 10:59 left in the second half. They lost their first region game of the season on Tuesday 7-0 against White County.

Spirits were up on the boys’ sidelines at the end of the game. They lost 3-0 but multiple players said they felt like it was their best performance, though it is not their smallest margin of defeat this season. 

“We’re getting better,” Tigers head coach Pat Muenchen said after the game. “Tonight we had a bunch of opportunities. We had five shots on frame, we just couldn’t get them in the net. The guys are passing a lot better though. We’re playing like a team.”

The Tigers lost their first region game of the season against White County 7-3. Junior Dylan Thompson scored twice in the loss.

Muenchen added that he wants to put better pressure on the ball when the opponent has possession. 

In Region 7-3A, each team only plays each other once. Dawson County’s region comprises seven teams, so the Tigers have only four more region games to earn a spot in the region tournament. 

The Lady TIgers (0-7, 0-2) and the Tigers (0-7, 0-2) return to action on Tuesday, March 9 in a non-region match at Pickens High School in Jasper.
