Blue Devils Fall in First Round

February 22, 2014

The Elbert County Blue Devils fail to St. Pius in the first round of the State Playoffs on Saturday in a heartbreaker.

The first quarter would be tight with St. Pius getting out to a quick start with a 9-2 lead but the Devils would battle back to go up 15-12 to end the first. In the second quarter the Devil offense would explode going up 33-26 to head into the locker room and it appeared they would control the rest of the game.

The third quarter would see Elbert maintain their lead with a 10 point 45-35 lead. However things would begin to unravel for the Devils late in the fourth quarter and St. Pius would exercise some demons and come away with a 56-55 win ending the Blue Devils season. Marc Moon led in scoring for the Devils with 21 points.
