The Dawson Co. High Tigers soccer team’s early season challenges continued to mount as they dropped a tough game Tuesday, Feb. 25, in Dawsonville, against the Pickens Dragons by a final score of 6-2. In addition to a difficult schedule that has had the Tigers facing high-caliber competition, the team is now battling both illness and injury according to head coach Patrick Muenchen.

“Our starting keeper had a concussion, he’s out indefinitely. Our second keeper is dealing with a throat virus, he was out too, so we actually pulled a guy that hasn’t played keeper since last year,” Muenchen said. “They still need some experience back there, so we probably lost two goals to that.”

The Dragons opened the scoring almost immediately when Juan Sanchez, one of the top-ranked high school players in the state, broke free on the far side of the field for a one-on-one challenge with freshman keeper Austin Corn in the eighth minute of play.

Three minutes later, another defensive breakdown allowed Pickens forward Carter Lindsey into the backfield unopposed and the Dragons were up by two in the first 10 minutes of action.

After the initial flurry of scoring, the Tigers settled into an attacking style of play, with junior Caleb Bonesteel sending the ball deep into Pickens territory while forwards Jose Sandoval, Blake Frazier, and team captain Michael Velasquez applied pressure on the net.

The strategy paid off when the trio connected on a series of passes and a shot from Frazier to cut the lead in half with 16:51 remaining in the first half.

1-2-3, Tigers! The Dawson Co. soccer team breaks their huddle Feb. 25 prior to the game against Pickens.

“We’ve got a lot of young guys on the team this year,” Velasquez said. “Games like this will definitely give them experience and help them get better as we move into regional play.”

Moments later, a rapid transition by the Dragons caught the Tigers flat-footed and Sanchez broke free for a second time to push the score back to 3-1 in the 27th minute. The Dragons found the goal again with less than five minutes remaining in the half to head into the break with a 4-1 lead.

Dawson Co. found themselves further behind in the first minutes of the second half as the Dragons scored their fifth goal of the contest on the opening possession.

Despite trailing 5-1, the Tigers fought hard to move the ball downfield and Velasquez cut into the lead with a precise back post shot in the 58th to spark a long string of opportunities for the Dawson Co. offense.

“We had more offensive opportunities in this game then we’ve had in the past,” Muenchen said. “A couple of missed opportunities right in front of the goal, but I’m proud of the guys for moving it forward and start to work on our offense.”

The Tigers soccer team will make a brief, one-game road trip to face the Calhoun Yellow Jackets on Friday, Feb. 28, before returning home to host the Cherokee Bluff Bears in their first regional contest March 3.

The Dawson Co. Lady Tigers varsity soccer team was firing on all cylinders as they struck fast and often Tuesday, Feb. 25, routing the Pickens Lady Dragons by a final score of 5-0 in Dawsonville for the team’s first win of the 2020 season.

“It’s been a challenge this year, wins have been hard to come by,” head coach Chess Hamby said. “We’ve played some quality opponents. Hopefully, it pays off in March and April when we hit regional play.”

The Lady Tigers were on the attack from the very first minute of the game, creating shooting opportunities on nearly every possession, but it wasn’t until the 31st minute of play that junior Molly Muenchen connected on a beautiful cross from Piper Wright to allow the Lady Tigers to head into halftime with a 1-0 lead.

Molly Muenchen and Piper Wright go on the attack Feb. 25 against Pickens.

“Everything came together for us as a team tonight,” Muenchen said. “This win will definitely build some confidence for us to take into our first region game next week.”

The second half was all Dawson Co. as the squad continued to apply pressure deep in Pickens’ half of the field. Muenchen opened the scoring with her second goal, assisted by a pass from forward Clarise Griffith, to put Dawson Co. up by two.

Annie Gloeckner effectively put the lid on the game with a pair of goals fifteen minutes apart, driving home a short shot through traffic with 28:55 remaining. She then nailed a solid mid-field shot off the upper crossbar in the game’s 66th minute to extend the Lady Tigers’ lead to 4-0.

Muenchen put the icing on the cake with 8:23 left on the clock as she blasted a penalty shot past the Pickens’ keeper to complete the hat trick.

Dawson Co.’s passing game was on target all night and generated multiple scoring opportunities for the Lady Tigers who amassed an astounding 28 shots on goal and tallied five assists. In addition to Wright and Griffith; Maggie Wright, Liz Lessard, and Emily Varca all provided support on the team’s five goals.

With the win the Lady Tigers move to 1-4-1 on the season and will be back on the road against the Calhoun Yellow Jackets on Friday, Feb. 28, before opening their regional schedule against the Greater Atlanta Christian Lady Spartans in the first week of March.

No injuries reported in wreck at Dawson County High

News

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – Today (Sept. 18) at approximately 7:30 a.m., troopers from the Cumming Post of the Georgia State Patrol were called to investigate a crash on Perimeter Road in front of Dawson County High School.

A white GMC Yukon, driven by 32-year-old Gloria Marie Cruz of Dawsonville, was attempting to turn left from the Dawson County High School driveway onto Perimeter Road.  Cruz failed to yield to a black Dodge Ram 1500 truck, driven by 17-year-old Aaron David Muilenburg from Dawsonville, who was traveling north on Perimeter Road.

The front of the Yukon struck the right side of the Ram truck.  This impact caused the Ram truck to veer to the left into the central turn lane where it collided head on with a white Ford Expedition, driven by 45-year-old William Johnny Holtzclaw of Dawsonville.

In the Yukon, there were two passengers, a 6-month old female and a 5-year-old female.  Both children were properly restrained in the correct type of car seat. Everyone involved was properly restrained by seatbelts and no injuries were reported.

Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in this crash.

Cruz was cited for failure to yield after stopping at the stop sign.

According to one county commissioner, the Board of Commissioners and Board of Education agreed earlier this year to provide funding for someone from the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office direct traffic at schools in the morning and afternoon. Witnesses said there was no one directing traffic at the time of the accident.

Pre-season football interview with Dawson County Tigers head coach Sid Maxwell

Dawson County High School, Dawson County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

Sid Maxwell is going into his fourth season as head coach for the Dawson County Tigers, and in those four years he has helped to create a successful program that reaches beyond the high school team and into the feeder programs. His philosophy? Three words: trust, care and commitment.

“It’s just a system that young men know that whatever we do we’re going to try to make them a better athlete,” said Coach Maxwell. “They also know I’m never gonna ask them to do anything that doesn’t have a purpose.”

The Tigers went 10-2 in their season last year, but Coach Maxwell knows how the keep the guys humble. Especially for seniors who may be stepping up for their final season.

“Some people…you put that crown on their head and they feel like they’re better than everyone else because you made them a leader. When they raise their head up, what happens to their crown? It falls off.” said Coach Maxwell. “So the guys we anoint going into this season are going to be the ones that keep the crown on their head.”

Dawson County Tigers preparing for season at North Forsyth camp

Dawson County High School, Dawson County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

With the regular season only weeks away, high school teams in the North Georgia area know that they have to take every chance they can to get better. That’s exactly what the Dawson County Tigers and several other teams from the North Georgia/metro-Atlanta area are doing this week at the North Forsyth High School contact camp.

The camp started this morning at 9 a.m. and lasted until around noon. Each team had a chance to play in a scrimmage game twice. Teams will return again tomorrow at the same time.

The scrimmage games were played in a format that allowed seven to eight minutes of possession time for each team. After time ran out the teams would change possession. Plays were stopped at first contact with the ball carrier.

The Tigers scrimmaged Southwest DeKalb for the first game. This game was played at a slower pace so the Tigers could rotate players. Junior Varsity and Varsity teams were present for the Tigers, so the rotation schedule allowed playing time for both teams.

An interception caught for the Tigers in their first scrimmage game against Southwest DeKalb High School.

Dawson County scrimmaged Collins Hill in the second game. Although this game was played in the same format as the first, it was played at a faster pace to focus on moving the ball and gaining yardage. Each game lasted an hour and a half.

“We’ve got a very young squad, a lot of these guys are just trying to get their feet wet before we officially kick off next week,” said Sid Maxwell, head coach for the Tigers. “[We’re] Just trying to get another chance to come out and play somebody.”

Maxwell said that this camp is the third contact camp for the Tigers this summer, and they are gearing up for the start of their mandatory practices next week.

Crash claims life of Dawson County High student

News

Elizabeth Sheer

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – A two-vehicle accident on Hwy. 53 near Buddy Burt Road claimed the life of 18-year-old Grace Elizabeth Sheer Monday morning.

Sheer was a senior at Dawson County High School and the 2017 Homecoming Queen.

A Georgia State Patrol incident report indicated she was driving a 2002 Honda CR-V west on Hwy. 53 shortly before 8 a.m. At the same time, a 2017 Peterbilt tractor trailer, driven by Edwin Thomas Kincannon Jr., was traveling east on Hwy. 53.

Sheer failed to negotiate the curve in the road, over-corrected to the left and lost control of her vehicle. The vehicle then began to rotate counterclockwise and crossed the center line. Sheer’s vehicle entered the eastbound lane of Hwy. 53 and was struck in the passenger side of the vehicle by the front of the tractor trailer.

Sheer’s Honda traveled off the south shoulder, struck an embankment with the rear of the vehicle and came to an uncontrolled final rest facing east on the south shoulder of Hwy. 53. The tractor trailer came to a final rest with the front of the vehicle in the westbound lane of Hwy. 53, while the trailer came to a rest in the eastbound lane.

Kincannon, 42, of Cartersville, was not injured in the crash. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts.

The Dawson County School Board observed a moment of silence in memory of Sheer at Monday’s meeting. School Superintendent Dr. Damon Gibbs said the school’s crisis response team is available to meet with students who need help to cope with the tragedy, and he asked those in attendance to remember Sheer family members in their prayers.

Lady Tigers Edge Out Lady Rebels

Sports, Team FYN Sports

On Tuesday the 25th of September the Lady Tigers traveled to Fannin Co. High School to face off with the Lady Rebels in the last game of the 2018 regular season. The Lady Tigers coming in to this game 9-12 overall and 5-7 in region play were looking to notch one more win before the region tournament starts up in the next few days.

The Lady Rebels started the scoring in the bottom of the first inning putting up 1 run and another  in the second to carry a 2-0 lead heading in to the top of the third.  Dawson didn’t stay quiet for long with 2 runs of their own by way of 1 walk, a single and a pass ball to tie up the game at 2 each.  The fourth and fifth innings had the Lady Tigers strike again.  The 4th inning runs came on 2 singles(Martinez and Henson) and 1 error.  The 1 run in the 5th  proved to be huge for Dawson as it would turn out to be the difference in the game.  Brandi Williams reached on a bunt single and scored later in the inning on a Fannin error.  The 5-2 score held until the bottom of the seventh when the Lady Rebels made a last inning charge with 2 runs falling short for a 5-4 Dawson victory.  Maggie Schandera took the circle for Dawson for the 7 inning victory.  On 79 pitches Schandera allowed 4 runs( all 4 unearned) on 5 hits with 3 strikeouts.

Carol Drake, Brandi Williams, Olivia Martinez and Bella Henson led at the plate for Dawson.  Kaselyn Martin and Kendall Martin both coaxed walks for the Lady Tigers.  The Lady Tigers will take the field on Saturday morning in game 1 of the region tournament against these same Lady rebels.

Tigers look Good To End Spring

Sports, Team FYN Sports

Ending the 2018 Spring Football regiment, the Tigers made their way up Hwy 53 to face the Dragons of Pickens County in the newly renovated Dragons Stadium.  The 2018 Tigers were able to get a look at a some new faces in positions that were left void after last year.  With the loss of the 2017 seniors, Coach Sid Maxwell made a few moves to fill some very important holes in his offense.

Sevaughn Clark

The first of those was in Sevaughn Clark stepping in to the quarterback position.  Clark saw a little action in the 2017 season and with the game at Pickens, it looks to be his when they play for real in August.  Clark preformed very well as he provided most of the Tigers running attack.  With accuracy, Clark can strike up the band this year giving the Tigers a deep ball option in an offense that keeps you on your toes with the running game. The second major move is T.J. Wilson switching to the other side of the ball.  At defensive end last year Wilson set the pace for the rest of the Tigers in their attack on the opposing offense.  Wilson at running back and tight end for the spring game preformed as if he had played there for many seasons.  This move will give the Tigers a sizable threat with the strong ball carrier and the hands to catch the ball.

Ethan Cameron

In the receiving corps, three young men proved they are ready.  Ethan Cameron, Hunter Barron and Dakota Sonnichsen ran excellent routes and had the receptions to keep the Tigers in the fight. Over all the Tigers looked really good on defense as well and have all summer for Coach Maxwell to work on the few shortcomings in the game against the Dragons.  In a spring scrimmage where its more about seeing what you have and what you need to work on, the points on the board are still important to some.  The Tigers fell in this one by a score 42-31 to the Dragons of Pickens County.

 

Great defensive play

DCHS football team under fire for pre-game prayer

News

Dr. Damon Gibbs

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – Dawson County High School’s football team has come under fire from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) for allowing a pastor to lead a pre-game locker room prayer.

The FFRF has filed a complaint with the Dawson County School System asking the pastor, Russell Davis of the Etowah Church, be removed from the team and that the school no longer allow religious leaders access to its students.

The complaint states “It is well-settled law that schools cannot appoint or employ a chaplain, seek out a spiritual leader for students or agree to have a volunteer teach other people’s children that character centers on religious belief, because public schools may not advance or promote religion.”

FFRF became aware of Davis and the pre-game prayer after a video was placed on a Facebook page.

Dawson County School Superintendent Dr. Damon Gibbs issued the following statement in response to the complaint.

“The School District became aware on Friday of a letter sent to the attorney for the District by the Freedom from Religion Foundation and apparently also mailed directly to local news media. After reviewing the information provided and conversations with appropriate school officials, the District is committed to following the parameters set forth in the First Amendment, and the court decisions interpreting the First Amendment, relating to both the establishment of religion and student’s rights to exercise their freedom of religion. We believe that our coaches have an understanding of those guidelines and will abide by them.”
