Gators Open Region Schedule At Statesboro

The Ware County Gators (3-3) will open up their Region 2AAAAA Schedule on the road against the Statesboro Blue Devils (3-3) on Friday in a game that could set the stage for post season play. The Gators are coming off an open date following al loss to top ranked Lowndes while the Blue Devils are coming off a 21-7 road loss to Region foe Wayne County. This is the first Region game for the Gators, but the Blue Devils are 0-1 in Region play and playoff hopes hinge on a victory against Ware.

The Gators are 8-9-1 all time against Statesboro having won 7 out of the last 10 meetings and 5 in a row over the Blue Devils. The Gators are averaging 19 points per game while Statesboro is averaging 21.6. The Gator defense is allowing 23.66 points per game while the Blue Devils are surrendering 18 points per game. The two teams have one common opponent thus far in the season. The Gators defeated Burke County 23-10 early in the season while the Bears defeated Statesboro 47-21 last week in Waynesboro.

The Blue Devils find themselves in a must win situation as another region loss would make it very difficult for the Blue Devils to overcome. The Gators control their own desitiny with two of the next three region games in the Swamp.
