The Dawson County Middle School Lady Tigers seventh grade basketball team opened the season with a 25-9 win over cross-county rival Riverview Middle School last week.
The Lady Tigers jumped out to an 11-2 first quarter lead and never looked back in the Nov. 8 game.
Madison Moye led Dawson in scoring with 11 points.
She was followed by Mollie Stanfield with 6 points. Brandi Jo Hafermalz and Brianna Burt rounded out the scoring with 4 points each.
"The girls played well," said head coach Nichole Green. "We really did a great job rebounding and seeing the open man. We have to spend time working on defensive intensity and passing, but I was pleased with the outcome of the game."
Leading Riverview on offense was Anneka Byers with 4 points.
Also scoring for the Lady Eagles were: McKenzie Callas with 2 points, and Isabella Queen with 1 point.
"We played with determination. Even though their understanding of the game is still improving, so will their ability to defend the ball and complete baskets. The girls played with a lot of heart," said Riverview coach Libby Roper.
The Lady Tigers will play at 4:15 p.m. Thursday at home against Pickens Middle.
Riverview will not play again until Nov. 29 at home against Pickens Middle.
