JOHNS CREEK — When South Forsyth needed it most — when a tenuous hold on Saturday’s Region 6-AAAAAA championship game had evaporated, and North Forsyth fans behind the two teams’ benches started to swell with noise — there was little question who would stem the tide. North’s Sydney Pefanis tied proceedings at 43 with 2:02 to play. South guard Sarah Myers walked the ball up the middle of Chattahoochee High School’s floor, in no real rush, before pulling up two feet behind the three-point arc to launch a trademark high-arcing shot.
