12072022 BASKETBALL 2

With under 10 seconds left, Annarose Tyre received a pass from Mackenzie Weyer on the left wing and buried a 3-pointer to lift Lambert to a 71-69 win Saturday at Walton.

The sophomore connection boosted the Longhorns to victory in the non-region contest less than 18 hours after a loss to Peachtree Ridge.

Tyre wound up with 18 points, while Weyer matched Zoe Zhuang with eight. Briley Elder paced Lambert (6-2) with 24 points.

Next up for the Longhorns will be their home opener, as Lambert will host North Forsyth Dec. 6.

The Forsyth Central girls doubled up Alpharetta to capture their second straight win and even their record Saturday in Fulton County.

Bulldogs sophomore Lily DeLuca nearly outscored the Raiders herself, finishing with 26 points in the 54-27 victory.

Now 2-2 on the season, Forsyth Central will open Region 6-7A play Dec. 6 at Milton.

Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe 70, Denmark girls 34

Moving forward, Denmark (3-6) will turn its attention to Region 6-7A play and a home contest Dec. 9 against Lambert.
