In their first regular season game under head coach Eric Herrick the Tigers found themselves locked in a tight battle with the Bears as neither team was able to pull away at any point in the contest. A pair of free throws from junior Mason Barnes with five seconds remaining on the clock decided the game in Dawson County’s favor by a final score of 69-67.
