With the 6-foot-5 Evan Cole back from injury and coming off a 20-point game at North Forsyth on Tuesday, South Forsyth hoped it could hand Lambert its first region loss Friday night, but point guard Andrew Melms stole the little momentum the War Eagles could produce as the Longhorns rolled to a 74-49 victory. Cole brought South fans to their feet early, with the score contested at 10-7 in favor of Lambert, when he put an emphatic block on Ross Morkem—one of the two bigs Cole, unlike those who replaced in a season-opening loss to the Longhorns, could take on the low block. Seconds later, Cole drew more crowd noise by taking a charge from Morkem.
