Continuing to dominate opponents on both sides of the ball, the Dawson County Tigers rolled to a 36–3 victory over the Lumpkin County Indians in their match-up on Friday, Sept. 21. The game marked the 39th meeting in this long running rivalry, and the victory gives the Tigers the series lead, 20–19, for the first time in school history. Sparked by a 74-yard touchdown gallop by sophomore running back Dakohta Sonnichsen on the second play of the game, the Tigers gained the upper hand early by establishing a solid running game. A second rushing touchdown in the first quarter, this one by senior running back Ahmad Kamara, combined with a 2-point conversion gave the Tigers a 15–0 lead and they never looked back. The Lumpkin County Indians featured a triple-option running game which had put up just under 1,000 rushing yards in their first three games of the season. Although they averaged a little over four yards per play, the Indians were never able to break thru the Dawson County defense and after driving deep for a field goal in the second quarter, they did not manage to put any points on the board.
