Lady Blue Devils advance
Statesboro's Marley Burke (10) rushes to join the celebration as Sarah Brown, center, is congratulated for her late goal by Kiana Moody, left, and Tori Thompson as the Blue Devils put away Rutland 3-0 during Tuesday's first-round state playoff game.
Heading into Tuesday’s first round matchup against Rutland at Womack Field, no player on the Statesboro girls’ roster had ever experienced a victory in the state playoffs. With that item checked off of the bucket list, it’s now just a matter of how far the Lady Blue Devils can go. Statesboro gained the competitive edge early and controlled play throughout the game as it notched a 3-0 win to advance in the Class AAAA state tournament.
