South Forsyth kicker Davis Little hit field goals of 40, 51 and 35 yards, and a stingy War Eagle defense held an explosive Shiloh squad to a lone touchdown in an 11-7 victory in the season opening scrimmage at South Forsyth. South’s running game, a question mark coming in to the season, was led by Seniors Cole Yeager and Braden Belue, and racked up close to 100 yards to put the War Eagles in scoring position. Senior QB Cade Aycock hit some timely pases to Seniors Dash Moore and Mikey Meersman, among others, to aide the offense. The defense took advantqge of several Shiloh turnovers to maintain their lead throughout the game.
The broadcast team of Greg Golden and Mike Newsome were assisted on the call by Greg’s daughter Becca Golden. It was Becca’s last night in town as she heads to Athens over the weekend to begin her sophomore year at the University of Georgia. Greg has been calling games in Forsyth County for ten years, and this was Becca’s first appearance on the Forsyth Sports 365 program. Hopefully it won’t be her last.
