LAWRENCEVILLE – South Forsyth began their season opener at Mountain View on Friday in convincing fashion, jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first half. However, a second half surge from the Bears turned the game into a high-scoring shootout that stunned the War Eagles in a 38-31 defeat. South (0-1) looked to have the game well in hand for the first two quarters but quickly saw control slip away from them as Mountain View (1-0) went on a scoring tear in the second half and wrestled the momentum away from the War Eagles as the contest reached its climax.
