Devils come up just short against Houston County
SHS Football
Houston County's Simeon Askew, center, celebrates in front of stunned Statesboro High defenders Gabe Idowu, bottom right, and Quincy Jackson after scoring a game-clinching touchdown run in the fourth quarter on Friday, Sept. 25, at Womack Field.
Coaches always say that in a close game things will come down to special teams. Friday night Houston County struggled on offense, and gave up three touchdowns on defense. The only area they won was special teams, where they easily outplayed the Blue Devils, as they walked away from Womack Field with a 23-18 victory.
