The Cherokee Braves have an important match against the Hayesville Yellow Jackets who are coming off a 41 to 14 loss to Copper Basin TN. The Braves took a tough loss to Choctaw last weekend during the annual Inter-tribal game. So both teams will be looking to bounch back against more evenly matched competition.
Perhaps the game of the week here in the far west will be the Swain High Maroon Devils taking on the Robbinsville Black Knights at Boyce Dietz Field in Bryson City. The Robbinsville Black Knights are another powerhouse having beat Hapeville from Atlanta 41-29, Rabun Gap/Nacoochee School 31-6, Pisgah 56-35, and East Henderson 63-42. The young Braves will have their hands full when it comes to containing the high powered Robbinsville offense. The Swain High Maroon Devils are coming off a huge upset win over the Franklin Panthers, and also had little trouble in handing the Smoky Mountain Mustangs a loss.
