Sports, Team FYN Sports

As part of the post season tournament the Lady Tigers welcomed in the Lady Rebels of Fannin High School.

The game on Saturday morning started with Lady Tigers pushing across 1 run in the bottom of the first with a Maggie Schandera Triple. Kaitlyn Bennett as a courtesy runner for Schandera scored on a Bella Henson single to give Dawson the lead. It wouldn’t take long for the Lady Rebels to put up 1 of their own.  The top of inning 2  Fannin tied the game at 1 each.  The 1-1 score held until the top of the fifth with Fannin scoring 1 on a double by Waldrep and a 2 out double by Russell to gain the 1 run advantage.   With the Lady Tigers being held to 1 run through the first six innings the defense gave up 1 in the fourth and 4 in the fifth lifting the score in favor of the Lady Rebels to 6-1 into the 7th and final inning.  With a last inning effort Dawson fought for 2 runs making the final score 6-3 and a win for the Lady Rebels.  Both the Lady Rebels and the Lady Tigers put up 8 hits in the game with the Dawson defense committing 5 miscues and aiding in unearned runs crossing the plate for Fannin.

Maggie Schandera threw 80 pitches in her 7 innings of work.  The Lady Rebels scored 6 runs(1 earned on 8 hits) and struck out 3 times as they faced Schandera.  Offensively for the Lady tigers, Carol Drake was 2 for 4 and 1 RBI to lead the Dawson batters. Schandera, Henson, Martinez, Martin and Tow all had 1 hit each in the 6-3 loss to Fannin.

Game 2 against Fannin was played after a brief brake for both teams.
