South Forsyth fell behind 15-4 in the first quarter Tuesday night, but battled back and eventually cruised to a 60-42 victory over county rival North Forsyth in the girl's version of “The Civil War “ game at Coal Mountain. Sarah Myers, fresh off a nomination for a McDonalds All-America slot (West Forsyth's Jenna Staiti was also nominated), scored 19 points with most of her production coming in the second half. North's Haley Simpson tried to keep the Lady Raiders in the contest, scoring 17 in an aggressive effort, but South (11-4, 8-0 Region 6-AAAAAA) remained undefeated in league play.
