DAWSONVILLE – A pair of SeVaughn Clark touchdowns, a pair of Coey Watson-to-Ryan Glass touchdowns and
continued defensive intensity propelled the Dawson County Tigers (2-0) to a 29-14 over the Chattooga Indians on Friday.
The Tigers’ offense got into the ends one for the first time this season on a Watson and Glass’s first score, a 60-yarder, in the first quarter. Glass added the 2-point PAT on a run. Dawson’s extended the lead to 15-0 after Chattooga’s fake punt from their end zone gave Dawson the possession on the seven yardline. One play later, Clark rushed for his first score of the night with 7:00 remaining in the half. Peyton Allen added the first of his three PAT kicks.
After the halftime rains set in, Chattooga got on the board with the opening drive of the third quarter to cut the score to 15-7. Dawson quickly answered when Watson and Glass connected for the second time on the ensuing drive. The 78 yard strike increased the lead to 22-7.
Chattooga trimmed the lead off a Tiger fumble led to a short field drive resulting in a new 22-14 score. After the Tiger defense held serve on ensuing Indian drives, Dawson was able to sustain a rushing attack behind Clark when he broke through for a 40-yard score in the closing minutes to establish the final 29-14 score.
Clark finished the night with 86 yards on 18 carries and the two scores. Glass finished with 138 receiving yards and Watson finished 6-10-0 passing for 156 yards and two scores. Watson also added 42 rushing yards.
