The Dawson County High School eighth grade girl's team ran its record to 3-0 following two wins last week.

The Lady Tigers defeated Riverview Middle, Nov. 18, by a 43-14 score.

The team followed that up with a 55-27 defeat of the Dragonettes on Dec. 20 in Jasper.

The game against Riverview was, for the most part, over in the first quarter, after the Lady Tigers took a commanding 16-0 first quarter lead.

"The girls played four great quarters," said Head Coach Nichole Green. "Everyone played as a team and we were one cohesive unit."

Dawson County placed three players in double digits. Kaylee Sticker scored 13 points, Hannah Tinsley added 12 points and Linsey Lebaron contributed 10 points. Also scoring were Frankie Muldoon with six points and Kenedy Moledor with two points.

The game at Jasper was a little different.

Green's team was tied at 9-9 after one quarter of play. But the constant pressure on defense exerted by the Lady Tigers allowed them to take a 10-point lead into halftime at 25-15.

Dawson County used a huge third quarter to outscore Jasper 20-3 to take a 45-18 advantage after three quarters.

"The girls played great defense despite the constant calls that seemed to go against them," Green said.

"The girls really pushed the ball up the floor and created a bunch of fast break opportunities for themselves. Kaylee Sticker really broke out our offensive game in the second half and my guards did an amazing job shutting down their ball handlers," she added.

Sticker had a huge game offensively with 23 points.

Teammate Lindsey Lebaron contributed 13 points followed by Muldoon with seven, Tinsley with six, Moledor added three and Mazzy Martin with one point.

The Lady Tigers take the Thanksgiving break off before hosting Pickens Middle School Dec. 4.
