The Blue Devils (9-1) will host Austin-East (2-7) on Friday at 7 p.m. in the opening round of the playoffs. Season passes cannot be honored for playoff games. Tickets for Friday’s game can be purchased for $8 online or $10 at the gate. The forecast is again calling for cold but no rain this Friday.
