North Forsyth Converts Key Plays on 4th Down, But Fall 55-21

The Raiders lost their 6-AAAAAA clash in Alpharetta on Friday night.

The North Forsyth Raiders couldn't overcome Alpharetta's potent offense, but they managed to crack their defense on two big fourth down plays during Friday night's game in Alpharetta.

Alpharetta scored first and held the lead for the whole game, but North Forsyth was able to fool the home team's defense once on fourth and long. They did it a second time when the defenders were on the lookout for another fake punt.

The first fake punt resulted in a more than 30-yard gain. The second fake succeeded with a 40-yard touchdown pass play.

Alpharetta put together its own magic, scoring in two plays that took less than 20 seconds at the end of the game – a good thing as only 20.5 seconds remained on the clock at the time.

The game briefly looked like it was going to carry over the physical play after the whistle was blown, as players from both teams began trash talking in a serious way. A little shoving began, but Alpharetta Coach Jason Dukes called a timeout to settle his players down, and the young men got back in control.

North Forsyth is 3-3 on the season, but trails in league play, 0-3. The Raiders face the daunting task of battling league-leading West Forsyth, 6-0 (3-0) for the Leatherhead Trophy on Oct. 19.

Alpharetta is 3-3 on the season, and 2-1 in 6-AAAAAA play. The Raiders play the 4-2 (2-1) Chattahoochee Cougars on Oct. 19 in a game that's likely to have major consequences in league play.
