South Forsyth sophomore Anna O’Connor substituted as a pinch runner three times during regulation innings against Lambert on Thursday evening, though she didn’t spend much of that time running. In the bottom of the eighth, subbing for default runner Kayla Mayoros after she reached third on a wild pitch, O’Connor finally got the green light. A passed ball brought O’Connor home on a bang-bang play at the plate, and an incidental slide into Lambert pitcher Marissa Guimbarda's lower leg jarred the ball loose at the plate, giving South a dramatic 6-5 victory over its rival from down the road.
