Spring Foot­ball

The Covington News - - FRONT PAGE - GABRIEL STO­VALL gsto­vall@cov­news.com

The New­ton Rams and Alcovy Tigers faced off against each other Satur­day night in a spring foot­ball cul­mi­nat­ing spring game at Sharp Sta­dium.

Thanks to a new al­lowance by the Ge­or­gia High School As­so­ci­a­tion, schools are now able to sched­ule op­po­nents from other schools in spring games to end the two week spring foot­ball pe­riod.

Be­cause of the rain, the game which was sched­uled for a 6 p.m. start, didn’t be­gin un­til al­most 7:30. New­ton dom­i­nated the first half, be­gin­ning with an 18 yard touch­down pass from Myron Mid­dle­brooks to Nuru Tinch to give New­ton a 7-0 score.

Af­ter a quick three-and-out for Alcovy, New­ton tail­back Adar­ius Thomas capped six­play, 65-yard drive with a five yard scor­ing scam­per to push the score to 14-0.

Alcovy’s of­fense couldn’t get un­tracked once again, reg­is­ter­ing its sec­ond straight three-and-out. Af­ter the Tigers’ punt, Mid­dle­brooks took the ball around left end and darted for the end zone, stretch­ing the ball across the goal line af­ter a 23 yard touch­down run.

On New­ton’s next drive, the Mid­dle­brooks would con­nect with Thomas for a three yard scor­ing toss, giv­ing New­ton a 27-0 lead at half­time, which came right be­fore our press time dead­line.
