Girls basketball: Johnson gets 1st win of season; Dawson County rallies in NForsyth tourney

By AccessWDUN Staff

COAL MOUNTAIN  — A balanced Dawson County offensive attack eventually wore down Madison County Saturday as the Tigers rallied in the second half for a 69-55 victory in the North Forsyth Tip-off Tournament.

It was a tight affair for the entire first half with the two teams trading half-a-dozen leads. The Red Raiders led 19-17 at the end of the first quarter and rallied to take a 31-28 lead into the intermission.

But the Tigers (2-2) exploded for a 20-9 third quarter run to take a 48-40 lead and never looked back.

Maddie Anglin and Sophia D'Oliveira each had 15 points to pace Dawson County. Mariah Benson scored added 14 points and Marlie Townley 12 for the Tigers.

Dawson County will be back in action in the North Forsyth tournament on Monday taking on Cherokee in a 4 p.m. tip-off.


JOHNSON 48
PROVIDENCE CHRISTIAN 25

Johnson got its first win of the season Saturday on the road.

All nine Knights players scored. Carly Odell paved the way with 12 points for Johnson (1-4).

The Knights are off until playing host to Habersham Central on Dec. 3.
