The Dawson County Lady Tigers traveled to North Hall last week for their only game of the week and lost 55-44.

The Trojans were able to get the win after Dawson County dug an early hole, according to Head Coach Steve Sweat.

"Our effort was fine," Sweat said. "Our shot percentage and defense at times was not so good. It is hard to win games when you have single digit scoring in a quarter."

The Lady Tigers were only able to put up 5 points in the first quarter of play.

After the first, they were down 16-5.

That 11 points would end up being the margin of loss on the night.

"That means we played an even game (39-39) for the other three quarters," Sweat said. "That is why I say the effort was fine."

Dawson County was able to pull within to within 3 points during the final period, but was forced to foul and the Trojans were able to score at the free throw line.

Nine of the Lady Tigers contributed to the scoring without anyone in double digits.

Abi Chatham and Calli Watson led the scoring with 8 points each.

The Lady Trojans had five players get on the board, but two of those were double digit.

Sweat praised the play of Kati Brady, Marlie Townley, Chloe Bennett, Cadey Ayers and Maggie Schandera whose efforts were all essential in the comeback.

"We are continuing to improve and I am looking forward to seeing us put everything together for a whole game," Sweat said.

With the loss, the Lady Tigers move to 5-11 overall and 2-2 in region play.

The team traveled to Union County on Jan. 10 but results were not available as of press time.

Dawson is scheduled to play at 6 p.m. at Marist on Jan. 13 and will face East Hall at 6 p.m. for the rescheduled game on Jan. 14 in Gainesville.
