MT. AIRY – Tyler LaFlamme rushed for two touchdowns and caught another as South Forsyth football rolled to a 49-7 victory against Habersham Central on Friday in a Region 6-AAAAAA game on the road.

LaFlamme had touchdown runs of 2 and 79 yards in the first half as the War Eagles (2-1, 2-0) built a 35-7 halftime lead. The senior running back added a 49-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter from quarterback Matt White, one of White’s two touchdown passes on the night.

It was another offensive outburst for South after scoring 38 and 49 points against Mountain View and Centennial, respectively. The War Eagles have averaged 45.3 points per game through three games.

"We’ve got some weapons on offense," South head coach Jeff Arnette said. "We got a returning quarterback with 10 games under his belt. Tyler is running the ball great. We’ve got some real threats at wide receiver. We got some weapons. Coach [Troy] Morris, our offensive coordinator, has called some really good games. He and his staff have done a great job."

South got contributions in nearly every facet of the game. Zack Miller returned a blocked punt for a touchdown to make it 21-7 in the second quarter. Cameron Kline returned a recovered fumble for a touchdown just before halftime.

As South put the game out of reach in the second half, back-ups got in on the action, like Julian Mingo who scored on a 9-yard run for the game’s final touchdown.

The win sets up a seemingly lopsided game against North Forsyth, which fell to 0-3 after a 49-0 loss to Northview on Friday. South has lost three of the last four in the series, including a 17-12 defeated last season that cost the War Eagles a spot in the state playoffs.

"We’ve got a huge game coming up," Arnette said. "We’re 2-0 in the region. That’s a great place to be. Our goal is to get better each week at practice."
