Dawson County tuned up for this week's playoff game with a 17-14 victory at Johnson High School Oct. 6 in what was a non-region game. Coach Sid Maxwell's Tigers jumped out to a 17-0 lead before fending off the Knights in the fourth quarter. "We used the game to evaluate our younger men and to build depth for our future," Maxwell said.
