Winning streak ends for Lady Tigers
Burgess 2 1-17-16

The Dawson County Lady Tigers' winning streak came to an end with Friday night's 60-42 East Hall defeat at home.

"East Hall picked a real good night to play real good," said Coach Steve Sweat. "We have had some great battles with them over the years and tonight was their night. I have said all along, you better be ready to play every night in our Region and tonight proves why I will keep saying it."

The Lady Vikings are now tied with Dawson County for first place in region 7-AAA with 6-1 records.

A day later, the Lady Tigers came up short on the scoreboard again when Chestatee got revenge of an earlier loss by outscoring Dawson County, 48-46.

"The game was close all the way with Chestatee hitting a shot at the buzzer to win it," Sweat said.

Kaylee Sticker led with 16 points against East Hall, followed by Karlie Bearden with 13. Eliza Sillesky added 11.

Bearden was Saturday's high scorer with 13 points. Sticker followed with 11 and Haley Burgess scored 9.

With an overall 17-2 record is 17-2, the Lady Tigers will host Union County Tuesday in Dawsonville.
