The Dawson County Tigers junior varsity team got a big win over the Fannin County Rebels at home last Thursday.

The Tigers scored early and often on their way to a 35-6 win.

After a personal foul on the opening kickoff, the Tigers defense went to work with Blaine Thomason sacking the Rebels quarterback on the first play from scrimmage.

The Rebels went three and out and punted it to the Tigers 14-yard line.

The offense worked quickly on runs by Robbie Rarick and Ethan Hamby.

They capped off the drive with a pass from Trey Pruitt to Sean Thomas for a touchdown. Cole Dennis added the point after to put the Tigers up 7-0 early.

The next drive saw multiple Rarick carries and a Wyatt Hays run for a first down before the Tigers gave the ball back to Fannin at their 18.

The Tigers defense held at the end of the first quarter and the Tigers' offense went back to work with a Pruitt pass complete to Chance Armstrong for the first down.

Pruitt again went to Armstrong for 40-yard pass resulted in a touchdown and Dawson went up 14-0 in the second.

Chaz Jennings was able to block the Rebels next punt and Matthew Kenny recovered it and returned it for 10 yards.

Thomas took the next snap and went 16 yards for a touchdown, followed by another Dennis extra point.

The next Rebels drive was helped by a pass interference call on the Tigers. They got into the red zone only to have Kelton LeBaron intercept it at around the 1-yard line. There was also a personal foul called on Fannin to move the Tigers out from the goal line to start their drive.

Rarick had two long runs and the Tigers were in position to score again. Pruitt got in the end zone on a keeper and Dawson went up 28-0 with about 5 minutes until half.

Dawson County got the ball back again with 2:54 until half. Ethan Cameron had a long run for a first down. Thomas finished up the scoring for the Tigers with an 8-yard run.

The Tigers got the ball back to open the second half and slowed their pace.

The Rebels were able to get in the end zone in the fourth quarter, but Dawson swatted down the extra point attempt.

The JV team moves to 3-1 on the season and take on Union County at 5 p.m. at home tomorrow.
