The Dawson County Tigers set the tone from the opening buzzer of their rivalry game with the Lumpkin County Indians on Dec. 18 as they scored 8 unanswered points in the first minute on their way to an 88–43 victory. After junior Eli Burruss started the game with 3 points from the corner, the Tiger defense forced back-to-back turnovers from the Indians that allowed junior Jasper Gibson to add 3 points of his own and allowed senior Luke Chism to force his way inside for 2. Lumpkin County managed 2 points to end the rally but continued to find themselves swarmed by the Tigers’ two-man press defense and their points came few and far between during the quarter.
