The Elbert County Blue Devil basketball squads will be taking on rivals Hart County on Friday, January 11th in the Inferno starting at 6:00 pm.
The Lady Devils, who have been on a tear with a five game winning streak, will take on a struggling Lady Bulldogs that are 4-12 overall this season; two of those four wins are from the region, as the Lady Bulldogs are 2-3 within the region. Since 2004 these two teams have met twenty-two times and the Lady Devils have won all but five including both meetings last season. The 12-3 Lady Devils should want nothing more than to continue their winning streak with a win over their rival and go on to 6-0 in the region.
The Blue Devils are one of three teams in the region with double digit wins. The Devils, who started the season 7-1, have slowed a bit in recent weeks while facing some tough opponents; a win against rival Hart County could be what the Blue Devils need to get back on track. On paper the Blue Devils are the better team, but statistics go out the window when your rival is in town.
These games will be aired live on 1400 AM and 96.5 FM the Voice of Elberton, or come to the Inferno and enjoy the excitement as some of Georgia’s greatest rivals throw down on the Hardwood.
