Friday Football Preview: CHS vs Westover

Hugh Mills Stadiums: home of Westover Patriots

The Cairo Syrupmakers football team will be taking on the Westover Patriots of Albany, Georgia, this Friday night at Hugh Mills Stadium. The game begins at 7:30 pm.

Last year, the Syrupmakers defeated the Patriots 24-21 at West Thomas Stadium in Cairo. According to senior linebacker and fullback Jahsari Patterson, “The biggest challenge for our defense is to stop their running game and their athletic quarterback.”

If the Syrupmakers are able to defeat the Patriots, they will clench the AAAA Region 1 division. Their record in the division is 4-0, while their overall record on the year is 6-1, with the single loss being at home to Thomas County Central. Six teams are tied for second place in the division. Westover is one of those teams, so they will surely be playing hard and looking for a victory Friday night, as well.
