Gainesville (12-10, 2-8 Region 6-7A) saw its two-game win streak snapped with the loss. The Lady Red Elephants led most of the way through the first three quarters.

Gainesville opened with a 10-7 first quarter and extended the lead to 23-16 by halftime on the strength of forcing 13 South Forsyth turnovers.

The Lady Red Elephants led 29-21 midway through the third quarter before the Lady War Eagles (18-4, 7-3 Region 6-7A) finally got going.

South Forsyth closed out the third quarter with a 13-5 run to tie the game and then used a 12-2 spurt to open the fourth quarter to put the game away. Gainesville did close out the game with a 7-1 run but could not get closer than 48-44 with just 6 seconds left.
