Dawson County High School varsity Lady Tigers basketball team played in one game last week and came away with a 52-32 win over Union County.

The game was also the first road game of the season for coach Steve Sweat's team.

With the win Dawson County moved to 3-0 overall.

Dawson County used its pressure defense to limit the Lady Panthers to just three first quarter points while taking an 11-3 lead.

In the second quarter the Lady Tigers extended their advantage to 23-13 as the buzzer sounded for halftime.

The senior laden Lady Tigers put all stops out on defense in the final eight minutes outscoring Union County 11-3 to come away with a hard fought 20-point victory.

Senior Karlie Bearden led Dawson County in scoring with 18 points.

Bearden was followed by teammate Eliza Sillesky with 10 points.

"Eliza (Sillesky) had her best scoring night of the young season," Sweat said.

Completing the scoring for Dawson County were: Haley Burgess with nine points, Kaylee Sticker had eight points and Katelynn Simpson scored seven points.

The Lady Tigers will play at home Friday against Chestatee High School.

The game will also serve as Park and Rec Night at the Ford E. Phillips Arena.

The Lady Tigers will play their first Region 7-AAA game Dec. 8 at East Hall (4-0) in what could be a hard game.
