Michael Henderson’s North Forsyth teammates kept the game going long enough for him to finish what he started an inning earlier. The Raiders trailed 4-2 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh and were down to their final strike on more than one occasion, teetering on the verge of falling to 0-3 in region play at the hands of a Centennial squad that had not won a game all season. Instead, three batters reached base with two outs and Henderson capped a five-run inning with a three-run home run to give the Raiders a 7-4 win over the Knights on a cold, snowy Monday afternoon at Raider Field.
