The Dawson County High School Tigers varsity baseball team won two out of three in a high scoring region series with Union County last week. A combined 72 runs were scored as the Tigers won Game 1 (21-14 after 11 innings) at Union County on Thursday before splitting Friday’s doubleheader at home (a 9-8 loss followed by a 15-5 win). Dawson County made a thrilling comeback in the first game on March 22, down 11-5 after three innings, the Tigers (7-10, 3-6 Region 7-AAA) outscored the Panthers 6-1 in the final two innings to send the game into extras before exploding for seven runs in the top of the 11th inning to leave Blairsville with a 21-14 victory. As exciting as that finish may have been, the fact that it took the Tigers 11 innings to finish off the Panthers (7-8, 2-5 Region 7-AAA) on Thursday may have cost Dawson County the win in the first game of the doubleheader on Friday.
