And that is strong, as the Cass Colonels and host Cedartown Bulldogs hope to snap their respective losing streaks.
Both the Colonels and the Bulldogs were 4-1 overall before hitting a roadblock during the second half of the season.
Cass (4-4, 0-3) has lost three straight, while Cedartown (4-3, 0-2) has lost two straight. Both teams were defeated by the River Ridge Knights and the Pickens Dragons.
“We couldn’t get Pickens’ offense off the field,” said Cedartown coach Steve Hendrix, whose Bulldogs are coming off a 54-35 loss to the Dragons.
With two straight wins, the Colonels have a chance to close out the 2012 season with a winning record, a far cry from last year’s 0-10 record.
“That’s our goal as we prepare for our final two games,” Cass coach Rick Casko said. “Two straight wins gives us momentum heading into next season, especially when we are only graduating four starters.”
