Tigers face must win at home vs. Forest Park
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.
