Al­covy on the road for big re­gion game

The Covington News - - Sports -

Al­covy trav­els to Tara Sta­dium tonight for a re­gion game with big time play­off im­pli­ca­tions. The Tigers take on Mt. Zion-Jones­boro with the win­ner claim­ing at least a share of third place in Re­gion 4-AAAA.

As it stands, the Tigers are one of three teams at 3-2 while Mt. Zion-Jones­boro is 4-2 and in sole po­si­tion of third.

Al­covy, 4-3 over­all, is com­ing off per­haps its best game in school his­tory. Last week the Tigers de­stroyed Ola 41-0 on the road and amassed more than 400 yards of rush­ing of­fense. But the Tigers face a much more for­mi­da­ble foe tonight in a Bull­dog team that beat Dutch­town 21-14 last time out.

“They are very quick and fast,” Al­covy coach Kirk Hoff­man said. “They play ex­cel­lent de­fense and of­fen­sively, they have the abil­ity to score in a hurry.” The Tigers come in with a boat load

- gressed, Hoff­man said his team has learned from its mis­takes and con­tin­ues to im­prove.

“I think we have got­ten bet­ter ev­ery week,” he said. “One of our goals this year was to im­prove each and ev­ery week. Right now I feel like we are play­ing the type of game I ex­pected. We have got­ten bet­ter each week and need to con­tinue to if we are to reach our goals for the year.”
