Devils post double win over Colquitt

TIFTON — The Tift County Blue Devils soccer teams continued their hot streak Tuesday. Playing the Colquitt County Packers at Moultrie, the girls rolled to a 5-2 win to remain undefeated and the boys won 6-2.

"It was probably our worst outing of the year," said girls head coach Doug Head, whose team is averaging six goals per game. On the flip, he said the Colquitt coach told him it was his team's best game of the season.

Head's team went up 4-0 in the contest before allowing two goals. Tift scored once more to gain a bit of breathing room.

Goals, according to Head, came from Abby Kay Choate, who had another hat trick, and from Taylor MacDonald and Blakeley Bergeron.

"I was in shock most of the night."

That was the comment from Bobby Earls about his team's performance. Earls, who leads the boys, was expecting a much tighter game, considering the Packers' experience. He had three freshmen among his starters; Colquitt's team consists of 14 seniors.

Luis Hernandez and Damion Terrazas scored two goals each. The other two were supplied by Edgar Zermeno and Jonathan Alvarado.

Both teams will play at Camden County Friday. A win by the Devils would secure top spot in the state playoffs. The girls are playing for the region championship.

A full preview of the Camden games will appear in Friday's edition.
