Tough Start to 2013 Football Season for Elbert County

September 3, 2013

Not quite the start Blue Devil fans were hoping for, as the high school football season began this past Friday.

The Blue Devils were on the road taking on the Buford Wolves for the start of the regular season, wrapping up a two game home and home series against the Wolves.

Buford got on the board first on their opening possession of the game, and opened up a substantial lead until late in the 2nd half, when the Blue Devils finally got on the board.

That would be the Blue Devils lone score on the night, as they fell in defeat to the Wolves by a final score of 46-7.

Some encouraging news for Blue Devil fans, the team did manage to rush for over two hundred yards in the contest.

With the loss the Blue Devils drop to 0-1 to begin the young season, and will hit the road again to take on the Jaguars of Cedar Shoals this Friday night.

105.3 WSGC will broadcast the game, with coverage starting at 7:00pm, and kick-off following at 7:30pm.
