GAINESVILLE — Dawson County needed Joakeim Celestin's two free throws with seconds left to fend off and seal the win over North Hall, 60-57, in a wild finish on the road Tuesday. 

Trailing 44-41 midway through the fourth quarter, Celestin and Jaden Gibson led the Tigers (8-5, 2-1 Region 7-3A) on a 15-0 run to grab the lead 56-44 with one minute left to play. Celestin led the Tigers with a game-high 28-points, 9 in the fourth quarter.

But the Trojans (5-7, 1-4 Region 7-3A) didn't go away quietly, answering with a 12-2 run of their own behind the 3-point shooting of Sam Gailey and Clark Howell to close the gap 58-56 and had an opportunity to tie with a 1-and-1 chance from the foul line but missed the second. 

Gailey led the Trojans with 12 points, while Eli Campbell had 11 and Howell added 10 points. 

Tyler Lane scored 11 points for the Tigers.
