Overtime thriller
Jonesboro falls at SHS, Devils advance to quarterfinals
The Statesboro Blue Devils overcame a deficit twice in regulation and scored twice in overtime to earn their second state quarterfinal appearance in 25 years with a 4-2 victory over Jonesboro Tuesday at Womack Field. Tied at 2-2 after full time, the teams played a pair of five-minute overtime periods. With 37 seconds remaining in the first extra period, Cardinals goalkeeper Elijah Wade corralled a loose ball, but made an ill-advised pass to a defender just outside of the 18-yard box.
