If Forsyth Central’s boys are to beat a Region 6-AAAA opponent this year, it’ll have to come in postseason play.
Central finished the regular season 0-13 in region play and 2-20 overall after a 46-43 home loss to Chamblee Friday night.

Central took a 43-40 lead inside the final minute, as Doug Scherer took a quick pass from Jeremy Long and threw down a nice dunk to put the Bulldogs in position to claim the win.

Chamblee was able to regain the lead without scoring a basket, though, as consecutive Central fouls put the other Bulldogs at the charity stripe twice, with 44 and then 40 seconds to go. Chamblee hit all four clutch free throws to go up by a point, and Karl Moton hit the final basket of the game for the three-point result.

The game was anyone’s for the taking all night, with the teams tied 8-8 after one quarter and knotted 19-19 at the half.

Chamblee had opened up a 34-29 lead after three quarters, but a 14-3 run in the fourth quarter allowed Central to catch up.

Central’s Steven Davis led all scorers with 19 points, while Chamblee’s David Mason scored 15.

Central will compete in the Region 6-AAAA tournament on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. The tournament will be held at Miller Grove High School in Lithonia.
