Cairo has been here before.
After all the Syrupmakers were 1-2 last season as they headed into the Region 1-AAAA schedule. And yet, Cairo hasn’t been here in quite some time.
As Crisp County travels to West Thomas Stadium today for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff to open region play, the Syrupmakers are struggling to find their identity.
“There’s been good, and there’s been bad,” Cairo coach Tom Fallaw said. “We’re struggling a little bit, I’ll be honest with you.”
Cairo, which has won 23 straight region games heading into tonight’s opener, fell 21-10 to Thomasville in its season debut before bouncing back to down Bainbridge 6-0. Last week, the Syrupmakers closed out the non-division portion of the schedule with a 21-0 loss to Thomas County Central.
