American Legion Post 247 bounced back with an 18-4 win over Cumming on Saturday.

The game proved to be some revenge following a 13-9 loss to the same team on June 19.

Dawson County High School pitcher Jeffrey Partington pitched a complete game for Dawsonville.

"He was great on the mound," said head coach Casey Wilson.

Several players had multi-hit games against Cumming.

David Chester, Sawyer Thompson, Edward Willemse, Partington, Blake Thomas and Clay McClure led the team in hitting.

McClure added a homer in the game.

"We are still progressing and doing well," Wilson said. "The team is currently in first place in the North area and second overall."

Dawsonville is currently 5-4 in league play.

The team will play again Saturday in a home game against Canton.

The first game of the doubleheader will begin at 6 p.m. at Dawson County High School.
