The Blue Devils defense set the tone for the night in the first half when they held Colquitt to four field goal attempts despite the fact that the Pack started four of their first six possessions on the Norcross side of the field. Putting up just nine first half points on four scoring opportunities fueled the Devils growing confidence, while at the same time having a demoralizing impact on the Colquitt offense.

While the Norcross D played "Lights out all night", as Coach Keith Maloof said after the victory, the offense was inconsistent much of the night. The wet weather conditions, which resulted in delays in both the Norcross and North games, were a factor in the lack of offensive production. In combination with a wet, muddy field both offenses struggled to put together extended drives. Quarterback AJ Bush and the Norcross offense managed enough big plays to find the end zone twice, which was just enough to send the Devils to their second consecutive state championship game.
