Football Preview: Cairo vs Shaw

The CHS Syrupmakers varsity football team will be playing a home game against their division opponent, the Shaw Raiders from Columbus, Ga., on Sept. 22, 2017, at the West Thomasville Stadium, in Cairo, Ga. The game time is 7:30 p.m.

The Syrupmakers are 2-2 overall and are ranked number 135 in the state of Georgia. The Raiders are 1-2 and have won one game at home and lost two games away. The Raiders state ranking is 371, and the Raiders will be coming into this match-up following a big loss in their last game vs the Harris County Tigers, in which they were outscored 30-6, according to Max Preps.

Meanwhile, the Syrupmakers will be coming into this game following a close 9-7 win and comeback victory over the Hardaway Hawks. That was the first division game for the Syrupmakers, and with that win, Cairo is tied for first place in the division, along with the Northside Patriots and the Americus-Sumter Panthers.

With two games won for the Syrupmakers and only one game for the Raiders, the Syrupmakers are going for the win and hope to continue to move up in the division rankings.
