Cairo has covered a lot of ground this season.
But the one place the Syrupmakers haven’t spent much time is the one piece of territory every offense wants to stake a claim — the end zone.
With rival Thomas County Central heading to West Thomas Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. start today, the Syrupmakers are hoping their offense can start to find some traction.
In their season opener against Thomasville, the Class AAAA No. 10 Syrupmakers scored its lone touchdown on a fumble recovery. Cairo’s offense produced a field goal. Last week, the 1-1 Syrupmakers managed a 1-yard touchdown run from Jeremiah Hill.
Two games, 16 points and one offensive touchdown.
And the Yellow Jackets, 2-1 and ranked No. 7 in Class AAAAA, are hoping to open strong defensively and in the process, keep doubt in Cairo’s mind.
