The Statesboro Blue Devils began the Class AAAA playoffs in style, easily claiming a 7-0 opening round victory over Westover Tuesday evening at Womack Field. The Devils (14-2) struck for four goals in the first half and cruised through the final 40 minutes to punch their first ticket to the second round of the state tournament since 2009. “This was a great win for us,” SHS coach Nick Thrower said.
