Sycamore goes on the road against Cheatham County Central in Week Three of the 2018 season.
Last year, the Cubs got the best of the War Eagles, winning 21-0. Cheatham stifled the Sycamore offense, and made big plays on defense to retain the Powder Keg for another year.
The loss dropped Sycamore to 2-1, the start of a 1-4 skid at mid-season. Cheatham, on the other hand, started a five-game winning streak that clinched a place in the playoffs.
Needless to say, this rivalry game is pivotal in both teams’ plan for success every year, and that will definitely be the case in 2018.
Cheatham went on to go 7-4 overall, 4-1 in Region 6-3A, losing only to eventual champion Fairview.
