Statesboro's Pablo Martinez, center, celebrates with teammate Wesley Budget after Budget's goal opened the scoring during Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Savannah Arts Academy.
An offense-heavy first half gave way to a defensive second half, but Hector Angeles’s strike from 15 yards out proved to be the decisive goal in Statesboro’s 3-2 victory over Savannah Arts Tuesday at Womack Field. The Blue Devils (11-2) took an early lead, but faced a 2-2 tie at halftime. While Statesboro controlled much of the action in the second half, they remained even with the Panthers (9-3-1) until finally pulling away with 7:48 left to play.
