Ware County Wins Big Over Cairo
Cairo received the ball and came out throwing from their 32 yard line. Syrupmaker Quarterback Blake Fields quickly completed passes of 7, 10, and 39 to lead Cairo to the Ware 10 yard line. After two short gains on the ground Cairo lost the 3rd down with a pass thrown from past the line of scrimmage. The 17 yard field goal try was missed and Cairo came up empty on their opening attack. Ware County went 3 and out and on 2nd and 9 from their 19 yard line Cairo full back Anderson came out of a pile of Gators and ran for an 81 yard touchdown. With 4:56 left in the first quarter Cairo led 7-0. It took the 2nd possession by the Gators for the offense to heat up. Mixing some passes in with the run Ware County drove 74 yards capped off by a 2 yard run by Matt Jones. With 9:54 left in the 2nd quarter the game was tied 7-7. Not to be out done the Gator defense came alive and shut down the Syrupmakers in the 2nd quarter. The Gator defense forced three 3 and outs in a row, a 45 yard fumble returned for a touchdown by Leodis McKelvin and ended the half with an interception by Antone Wilson. Ware County's offense didn't let up, scoring two more times in the 2nd quarter, a 25 yard pass from Steven Daniels to starting running back Tommy Jones (who's back from an ankle injury), and a half yard run from Daniels. At the half Ware led Cairo 27-7.
