The Blue Devils and Rebels were tied through the first half before Statesboro charged hard down the stretch to notch its second win over Effingham County in as many games this season.
After suffering a tough setback last week, the Statesboro Blue Devils are now in control of their own destiny in the region seedings as they took care of business in a 3-0 win over Effingham County Tuesday night. Statesboro (10-2-1, 6-1 Region 3-AAAAA) had a slow start to the first half, but scored three times in the final 30 minutes of the game. Alex Wagner put in two goals for Statesboro to give the Blue Devils a 2-0 lead and Carlos Diaz scored with just 12:38 left in the game to put the nail in the coffin.
