DUNNELLON -- Williston High School's football team is going to the playoffs.

The Red Devils dominated both quarters in Monday's three-way tie-breaker for second place in the district, defeating West Port 14-0 and blanking Dunnellon 7-0 to earn the runner-up spot.

Williston will play in the first round of the Class 3A tournament on Friday, Nov. 16, at Crystal River.

The Devils were nearly flawless in Monday's effort. In the opening quarter, taking on a West Port team they had defeated earlier in the season, Williston held the Wolf Pack to only 1-for-10 passing. In the regular season game the Marion County team had put more than 240 yards in the stat book through the air.

After stopping West Port on its first drive, the Devils went 57 yards in four plays, with a 39-yard touchdown run by Travis Evans putting points on the board. Mike Simma kicked the extra point.

Later in the period Deonte Welch intercepted a pass and returned it 30 yards for another score.

Evans rushed for 107 yards in that first quarter.
