In their lowest scoring game of the season, the Dawson County Tigers needed all 32 minutes against the North Hall Trojans on Dec. 14 as they overcame a staunch defense to emerge with the win by a final score of 46–36. Juniors Jasper Gibson and Eli Burruss opened the scoring for the Tigers with quick shots from the 3-point line to give the Tigers the lead in the opening minute. North Hall responded with 3-pointers of their own from Josh Cook and Luke Gunter to tie the game midway through the period. Defense ruled the remainder of the first as neither team was able to penetrate the lane and found more rim than net from the outside. With a 1-point lead at the beginning of the second period, North Hall made every effort to control the game and keep the ball away from the Tigers.
