Cairo tries to finish season on a positive note.

Cairo Head Coach Tom Fallaw knew he would have his work cut out for him this season. He knew his team would take a while to gel, however, what he didn't expect was a 2-4 record after six games.

But the beauty of Cairo's situation is that their final four games are region games, and a few wins would put the Syrupmakers back into playoff contention.

"We won't forget the losses", says Fallaw, "but we will learn from them...we are 2-4, we are learning from our mistakes and we have to keep learning."

This weekend, Cairo is at Crisp County. It's one of two straight road games before the Syrupmakers finish off the season at home against Thomas County Central and Bainbridge.

"Crisp is a good team, a wide open team", says Fallaw, "They have a great quarterback who will sign a division 1 scholarship. They have two good receivers, spread the ball around real well. And their defense is very athletic, they don't let up a lot of points."

The recipe is simple for Cairo, win one at a time, improve their record to 4-4 before the TCCHS game, and then lay it out on the line in hopes of a late season upset.

"The kids have played hard", says Fallaw, "They give us a lot of effort. You can blame the mistakes on the coaches, maybe the kids, but the fault goes everywhere. But as far as attitude and effort are concerned, I'm pleased."
