The Covington News - - SPORTS - News@cov­news.com

The Al­covy Tigers dropped their third straight con­test Satur­day, los­ing 37-6 to Lake­side-Evans in a penalty-filled Re­gion 3-AAAAAA bat­tle at Homer Sharp Sta­dium.

Lake­side wasted no time jump- ing on the Tigers, as the Pan­thers’ Drew Shed started the scor­ing with a touch­down and Brendan Gribek mak­ing a field goal to cre­ate a 10-0 lead, early in the first quar­ter.

Af­ter­ward, it looked as if Al­covy would re­spond when Koby Perry re­turned the sub­se­quent kick­off about 55 yards, but he fum­bled, giv­ing Lake­side the chance to stretch the lead to 13-0 af­ter an­other field goal to­ward the end of the first quar­ter.

Af­ter a third Lake­side field goal, Al­covy fi­nally got on the score­board with an Austin Davey touch­down run. A missed two-point con­ver­sion try kept the score at 16-6 in fa­vor of Lake­side at half­time.

The game was a stale­mate in the third quar­ter, as both teams got sloppy with hold­ing penal­ties, and nei­ther team could find the end­zone. That changed in the fourth quar­ter when Lake­side’s Savon Stokes scored a touch­down and Tony Jenk­ins stepped in front of an Al­covy pass and re­turned it for a pick-six to cap off the game’s scor­ing.

With the loss, Al­covy dropped to 4-4 over­all and 0-3 in Re­gion 3-AAAAAA with a bye week this Fri­day. The Tigers re­turn to the field Oct. 28 at Her­itage and then a home game Nov. 4 with Green­brier. Lake­side im­proved to 2-5 over­all and 2-0 in re­gion play.
