The two teams will get together again on Tuesday when South Fulton observes Senior Night.
Larson’s goal gave the Devilettes the winning margin and improved their record to 7-6-1.
Desiray Sturgeon accounted for South Fulton’s first-half goal, taking a feed from Larson and scoring. Morgan Kane assisted on Larson’s game-winner.

With the victory, SF improved to second place in the North Division of Region 7, according to head coach Mixon Moore.
South Gibson wins
1st game vs. GC
Carlos Walden ran for one touchdown and threw for another to lead South Gibson to a 26-17 victory over Gibson County in a District 13AA game played on Thursday night.
The win — in the first-ever varsity meeting between the neighboring county schools — snapped a two-game SG losing streak, improving their overall mark to 5-2 and their league record to 2-2.
Gibson County meanwhile, has now lost 30 straight games since the 2008 season.
The 17 points though, represented a season-high for the Pioneers, now 0-6 overall and 0-3 in 13AA.
