Once Forsyth Central’s boys shut down Matt Leahy in the second half, a comeback seemed to be in the works. But when Creekview turned up the defensive pressure, it gummed up the Bulldogs’ works. Central cut an 18-point deficit down to eight in the third quarter by holding Leahy to two points in the period, after conceding 18 to the versatile Creekview forward in the first half.
