The Dawson County Tigers have played six road games since Christmas and began a grueling regional schedule with a game against Cherokee Bluff High School on Jan. 4 in Flowery Branch. In their first year in region 7AAA, the Cherokee Bluff Bears looked to make their mark early against the Tigers as they opened the game with a fast-paced offense determined to put points on the board. Dawson County, accustomed to playing fast-break ball, quickly adapted and the two teams raced up and down the floor, trading points for the first two periods to wind up in a tight 45-39 game at the half with the Tigers holding the narrow lead.
