As a chill filled the air on Raider Mountain, the visitor’s stands heated up on Friday night as Walton began to pull away in the second game of the best-of-three double header. After a constant verbal assault from the South Forsyth student body, which had begun during the first game of the afternoon, the umpires stopped the game after previously warning the school administrators and coaches that unsportsmanlike conduct would not be tolerated.
Administrators were again summoned, along with law enforcement and this time three students were escorted from the venue. In a show of solidarity, what looked to be the entire South Forsyth student body, which had traveled to Walton High School, all got up and left with the unruly students. Amazingly, a handful of grown women, presumably parents of either players or fans continued to verbally attack the school personnel and police officers. At no time did any players from either school become involved in the display of “public affection”.
After a few minutes, order was again restored, temperatures cooled and the game continued as the Raiders built an insurmountable lead, ultimately sweeping the series 2-0, with a game-shortened 11-1 final.
