The Lady Blue Devils came off strong and remained strong throughout the game, relinquishing not even an inch for the struggling Lady Royals as they ended the first period with a 15-point lead with a score of 25-10 and the first half with a 19-point lead with a score of 46-27.

As the battle raged on the Lady Blue Devils returned shot for shot if not by two-fold ending the third period with a score of 64-32 and finally wrapping up their victory with a 40-point lead with a score of 79-39.

The Lady Devils would soon find their challenge against the Lady Tigers as they faced off against each other in the District 2 Championship round on Saturday night, where the Lady Devils found a narrow victory with a score of 56-55.

The Lady Devils and the Lady Tigers started with equal ferocity as the battle for District 2 champ began, however it was the Lady Tigers who gained a two-point lead at the end of the first period with a score of 11-9 and continued to maintain a lead, pushing the gap further with a three-point lead at the end of the first half with a score of 26-23.

The Lady Blue Devils fought hard to bridge that gap only to trail farther behind as the Lady Tigers held a nine-point lead at the end of the third period with a score of 41-32.

The turning point didn’t come until the last few minutes of the game, with not a bottom in their seat and not a call to be heard over the roar of the crowd as the Lady Devils recovered the lost distance and surpassed the Lady Tigers in time for the final buzzer with a score of 56-55.

Next the Lady Blue Devils will be participating in 2014 FHSAA Class 1A Girls Basketball Championship on Feb. 11. Their opponent, time and place are still to be announced.
