Al­covy takes on Perry

The Covington News - - Sports - BRYAN FAZIO bfazio@cov­news.com

Al­covy is look­ing to get in the win col­umn for the first time in the young 2012 football sea­son, and will have a tough task in do­ing so.

The Tigers travel to Perry, against a team that was ranked in the top 10 in Class AAAA, headed into the sea­son. How­ever, in week one, the Pan­thers fell to No. 1 ranked Peach County 21- 14.

Perry topped Peach County with 18 first downs to its 11, but com­mit­ted two turnovers.

The Tigers are fa­mil­iar with turnovers, com­mit­ting four in the open­ing game, a 21-16 loss to Jones County at Sharp Sta­dium on Aug. 30.

Al­covy will need to im­prove on its abil­ity to hang on to the ball, along with get­ting bet­ter tim­ing on the offensive end.

Quar­ter­back Marcus Wil­liams threw two in­ter­cep­tions, but passed for 69 yards and a touch­down. Lead­ing the way for the Tigers’ of­fense was Cor­nell White with 57 yards rush­ing and 41 yards re­ceiv­ing.

The Tigers de­fen­sive line stepped up with sev­eral sacks against the Grey­hounds as the Al­covy looks to continue build­ing dur­ing its four non-re­gion games.
