The Covington News - - Sports - By Josh Briggs

If Al­covy ever need a win, tonight’s the night. With two games re­main out­side looking in at 3-3 in Re­gion 4AAAA.

“The way the re­gion has turned out for a play­off spot,” Al­covy coach Kirk Hoff­man said. “Ev­ery game from here on out is im­por­tant.”

The Tigers strug­gled last week giv­ing up 32 points to Mt. Zion. Up un­til that game, the Tigers D had been hold­ing op­po­nents un­der 12 points per game. Hoff­man ad­mit­ted he was a bit sur­prised with the out­come.

“We have played well on de­fense un­til last week,” he said. “Our tackling was not very good and that hurt us. De­fen­sively we must con­tain the big play”

The Tigers will lineup with the same group that has got them to .500 thus far and Hoff­man said he doesn’t plan to change things at this point of the sea­son. De­fen­sively, Al­covy will look to get back on track and must con­tain the ball car­ri­ers com­ing out of the back well his team takes care of busi­ness on the line.
