The Dawson County Lady Tigers soccer team dominated the Central Chargers on Wednesday.

The only trouble Dawson County had was getting those initial close range shots to get in the net as they had more than 20 shots on goal in the game, not counting the 10 goals that went in.

The Lady Tigers beat the Chargers of Macon 10-0 at home on May 4.

Recently named Region 7-AAA player of the year, Emily Queen started the scoring for Dawson on a Brooke Cagle assist less than two minutes into the game.

Queen put another in the net for the 2-0 lead.

Cagle would be the next to score on a Mackenzie Kimbarl assist with 8:38 until half.

In the time between Queen and Cagle goals, the offense literally kept the Central goalkeeper on her heels taking shot after shot on goal.

Dawson goalkeeper Fallan Lacey, meanwhile, was alone at her end of the field.

At the halfway point, Dawson County was up 3-0.

Multiple shots would just not go in the first half, but that did not prove to be the case once the second half began.

Less than a minute into the second period Rachael Rajczak added another on a cross and not even a minute after that Cagle scored on a Rajczak assist.

Mackenzie Callas sent a beautiful corner kick into the middle for Lydia Blythe's contribution at the 31:50 mark.

By that point it was clear that Central was just holding on to get to the end which would come well before regulation.

Cagle went on to complete the hat trick and Callas scored with 12:08 left to end the game 10-0.

Dawson is now 18-1-2 overall.

With the win the Lady Tigers move to the Elite Eight of the Class AAA state playoffs and will face Region 8-AAA top seed Westminster Wildcats.

The Wildcats have a 17-1-1 overall record and are undefeated in region play.

Dawson County's quarterfinal game will be at 7 p.m. Saturday at home.
