North Forsyth ended up on the right side of a pitching dual on Monday night, scoring all of its runs in the first inning before outlasting rival South Forsyth in a 4-1 win at Coal Mountain. Starting pitcher Tyler Koch got stronger as the game went on, striking out four of the last six batters, and relief pitcher Tyler Fairchild entered and struck out South's Alex Andronica to prevent a late comeback. North (12-4, 8-2) won its sixth game in a row since falling 8-4 at home to Johns Creek on March 14 and remains in the thick of a tight and competitive Region 6-AAAAAA race between Lambert, Johns Creek, Northview and West Forsyth.
