South Forsyth vs Centennial/North Forsyth vs Alpharetta
The last time Lambert and West Forsyth hooked up it was not pretty. Lambert toyed with the Wolverines and left the Den with a 40+ point victory. But this is tourney time, and the Wolverines, fresh off an upset of Northview Monday night, were determined to shoew the Longhorns what it was all about. The Wolverines hung close all game, getting within one point twice, but Lambert’s fine forward Conner Mannion hit 11 of 12 free throws down the stretch to pull out a hard earned 61-55 victory over the pesky west siders. Lambert, undefeated in the Region during the regular season, moves into the semi-finals to play Alpharetta in the 8:30 game tonight. We’ll have the call for you live here on Forsyth Sports 365.
