Dawson County falls to North Forsyth in Scrimmage Game 34-15

All of TeamFYNSports, Dawson County High School, Dawson County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

 

In a battle between 2 young teams, Dawson’s potential shined in spurts. The turnovers and penalties are what kept Dawson County from getting the win.

The Dawson County Tigers (Region 7-AAA) faced off against the North Forsyth Raiders (Region 5-7A) in a game that featured a much larger opponent than what the Tigers will be playing in their region games. This type of experience early on will benefit Dawson County in the  long run.

Having graduated 28 seniors last year, the Tigers were prepared for mistakes early on, and that is just what happened.

They opened the game with a 3 and out, where the drive was cut short by a penalty that set the Tigers back a bit. The Raiders fed off their defense and methodically drove the ball down the field, but were held to a field goal due to a touchdown being waived off by a flag.

On Dawson County’s next possession, they fumbled the ball on an option play, and it was recovered by North Forsyth. However, sophomore Braedon Hubbard responded defensively with a 92-yard pick 6 to give the Tigers the lead 6-3 with 6:31 remaining in the first quarter.

The excitement was short lived, as the Raiders followed a couple of short runs with a 57-yard touchdown pass. 2 possessions later, they delivered a 19-yard touchdown strike to extend their lead to 17-6 early in the second quarter.

Dawson County received a spark from freshman Keegan Stover, who threw a 56-yard touchdown pass on the third play of his first drive to cut the deficit to 17-13 with 10 minutes remaining in the half.

For nearly 2 more quarters, neither team could get much going.

With 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, North Forsyth hit a 23-yard field goal to extend their lead to 20-13. On the ensuing possession, Dawson County fumbled the ball in Raider territory, setting North Forsyth up with an opportunity to put the game away. However, the penalty bug hit the Raiders, forcing them to punt from their own 5-yard line. A bad snap resulted in the ball sailing over the punter’s head, giving the Tigers 2 points and the ball.

Down 20-15 with an opportunity to retake the lead for the first time since the 1st quarter, Dawson County couldn’t get anything going and had a quick 3 and out. The Raiders then sealed the deal with a long drive finished by a touchdown run with 3 and half minutes remaining. However, the Tigers lost the ball on a bad snap, giving North Forsyth great field position that resulted in them tacking on another touchdown.

The final score was 34-15.

Dawson County will kick off their season officially on August 23rd against Habersham Central at 7:30pm

Tigers Win Easy Over Mount Bethel

Dawson County High School, Sports

On Monday of last week, the Dawson Tigers played host to the Eagles of Mount Bethel Christian Academy out of Marietta, GA.

The Tigers cruised to an easy victory over the Eagles with 16 runs over four innings of play for the big non-region win.  Stepping on the mound for Dawson was Sapp and Kelley who combined for 12 K’s, 3 hits and 2 runs.  Sapp was credited with the victory throwing 63 pitches in two and two-thirds of work while the gloves behind these 2 Tiger hurlers committed just 1 error in the game.

In the 16 run onslaught by the home team Tigers, the Eagles committed 4 errors and sent three pitchers to the mound. Leading the way for Dawson at the plate was H. Sapp who was 2 for 2 with 2 RBI, 2 walks and 4 RBI followed by B. Lewis-2 for 2 with 1 walk, 4 RBI, and 4 runs scored, K. Kelley-2 for 3, 1 run scored and 6 RBI, and M. Hernandez-1 for1, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 3 walks.  Overall the Tigers collected 8 hits in the game and scored runs in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and the 4th to close out the 16-2 win over Mount Bethel.  These two teams were scheduled to meet again on Wednesday.

Vikings Early Lead Too Much For Tigers

Sports, Team FYN Sports

Game one of the 7-AAA tournament had the Lady Tigerd of Dawson travel to Hall County to face off against the 12-0 Vikings of East Hall. Facing a high powered team sitting atop the region is a challenging task for any team and Wednesday it was the Lady Tigers turn to hopefully put a dent in the record of their opponent.

This game proved to be a Viking kinda day.  Entering the circle for East Hall, Banks dominated the Lady Tiger batters over 5 innings. On 50 pitches with an average of 10 pitches per inning, Banks shut down and shut out Dawson.  The Lady Tigers had one base runner in the game via a walk.  Defensively the Lady Dragons sent Maggie Schandera to the circle.  Schandera took the loss allowing 8 runs(7 earned) on 9 hits in 4 innings of work.  East Hall scored their runs in the first, fourth and sixth innings for the 8-0 shutout victory.

The Lady tigers will face the North hall Trojans in game two on the day.

Dawson Takes Game Two Win Over Fannin

Sports, Team FYN Sports

Game 2 of the post season match up between the Lady Rebels and the Lady Tigers found Dawson 1 down and looking to get a win to tie the series and live to play another game.

After the loss to Fannin earlier in the day Dawson sent Maggie Schandera to the circle to avenge the previous game’s outcome at the hands of the Lady Rebels.  Schandera stood tall and completed her task as she allowed only 2 runs on seven hits to very good Fannin line up.  Going scoreless through 4 full innings the Lady Rebels broke the zeros on the board in the bottom of the fifth with 2 runs.  That would be all for the Fannin offense against a dominate pitcher in Schandera.  The Lady Cats hitters put up 4 runs on 8 hits in the game.  The Dawson runs came in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings to finish the game with a score of 4-2.

Getting it done at the plate were Carol Drak(1 for 4 with 1 run scored), Brandi Williams(2 for 3 with a run scored), Maggie Schandera(1-4 with 1 RBI) and Bella Henson(2 for 3, with a run scored.  The Lady Tigers tallied 4 runs(3 earned) on 8 hits against Sneed of Fannin.  The 4-2 win for Dawson brought the series even at 1 game each and will be decided on Monday at Fannin Co. High School.  Start time is 5:00 PM.

Late Score Hands Dawson The Loss

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.

Dawson Shut Out By Trojans

Sports

The North Hall Trojans came into the house of the Lady Tigers on Thursday for a region game.  The game saw the Dawson being out hit and out scored by the visiting team.

The Trojans started the scoring with a 2 spot in the first on 2 hits and 1 error by the Dawson defense. Trojans added another in the second without the benefit of getting a hit. Dawson held the visiting team to no runs over the next four innings.  The sixth inning had the Trojans put 3 on the board by way of 2 hits and 2 errors.  In the top of the seventh an insurance run was added to solidify the 7 run lead and solidify the win. The Lady Tigers offense had 5 hits in the game but could not push any runners across the plate.  Chase in the circle went all seven in the shutout win for the Trojans.

The circle for Dawson was occupied by Maggie Schandera who also went seven innings.  Schandera allowed 7 runs(1 earned) on 9 hits and no walks.  The defense behind her committed 7 uncharacteristic errors in the loss to North Hall. Providing the base runners for Dawson was once again Carol Drake who was 3-4.  Other Lady Tigers reaching base by hits were Bella Henson at 1 for 3 and Lauren Tow at 1 for 3. Olivia Martinez coaxed the only walk for the Lady Tigers.

Tuesday the 25th of September the Lady Tigers will load up the bus and make the trip to Fannin County to face the Rebels for a 5:55 PM start.

Schandera Shuts Down Bears Of Cherokee Bluff

Sports, Team FYN Sports

Dawson made the trip over to Hall County for a battle between the Tigers and Bears with region implications.  With students from Flowery Branch and Johnson high schools the Bears are not a guaranteed win.  They have talented athletes that play the game well.

Schandera had 3 strikeouts  in the shutout win.  At the plate the Lady Tigers had 10 hits and produced 5 runs.  Getting it done at the plate for Dawson was once again Carol Drake who was 3 for 4.  Other Lady Tigers with a good day at the dish were Bella Henson(2 for 4), Kaselyn Martin(1 for 3), Lauren Tow(1 for 3) and Brandi Williams(1 for 4).
