Dawson cruises past North Hall in region contest

It was an easy night for the Dawson County Tigers as they cruised past visiting North Hall on Friday night in Dawsonville, 30-7.

The Tigers (3-2) snapped a two-game losing streak, winning for the first time in nearly a month. Dawson County had started out the season 2-0 before a bye week, resulting in a #5 state ranking in Class 3A. However, losing starting quarterback Coey Watson to a Grade 2 MCL strain in his knee left the Tigers without their leader in a tough loss to West Hall in Week 4.

Watson returned for Week 5’s matchup with White County, but the Warriors (5-1), in the midst of an incredible turnaround season, won a shootout at Dawson County, moving the Tigers to 2-2 on the season.

With Watson continuing to be on the mend, the Tigers had little trouble putting North Hall (1-5) away in Week 6.

Sevaughn Clark ripped off run after run, getting Dawson to the one-yard line on the opening drive, where Watson polished it off with a touchdown run. Peyton Allen notched a 33-yard field goal later in the first to put the Tigers up 10-0.

Dawson then got a 25-yard TD pass from Watson to Ryan Glass just before the break to go up 17-0. A scoreless third quarter kept the Trojans within striking distance, but Clark scored two touchdowns to put the home team up 30-0 before the Trojans got on the board with a touchdown.

Dawson County takes on Union County in Blairsville in Week 7 in a region game with playoff implications, while North Hall looks to rebound when hosting a winless Lumpkin County team at the Brickyard.
