South Forsyth's juniors Katherine Huey and Bianca Mora have built a lot of familiarity with each other as club teammates, so when the pitcher-catcher duo struggled with consistency in the Lady War Eagles' season opener Wednesday night against county rival West Forsyth, “rust” seemed like a good way to describe what looked like a loss. That was, until the bottom of the seventh inning when that same duo saved the game at the plate with two outs, as Huey doubled to score Emily Harris and Mora and give South a 5-4, walk-off win to start the year. “Sometimes when you're too good of friends, it can be too much when you play together,” South head coach Ronnie Davis said.
