No, that’s not a typo: Forsyth Central’s girls held North Springs scoreless in the second quarter and for a nearly 13-minute stretch spanning the first, second and third quarters.
The Lady Spartans tried just about everything: three-pointers, off-balance jumpers, transition layups, putbacks, and still nothing would go down.
When North Springs broke the cold spell with 6:05 left in the third, it was too late. Central had pushed its lead to 20, en route to a 43-24 win on ‘Domecoming’ on Friday night.
Abbey Fagan led the Lady Bulldogs with 17 points (11 in the second half), Caroline Hearn tallied nine and Julie Richards added eight points.
Central (10-12 overall, 8-1 Region 7-AAAAA, Div. B) moved in to sole possession of first place in its sub-region, with a visit to Sprayberry (6-3 in subregion)—whom the Lady Bulldogs beat on Jan. 6—looming next Friday.
The Lady Bulldogs are allowing just 30.8 points per game in their nine sub-region contests; the 24 given up to North Springs is the second-lowest scoring output by an opposing team in those games.
