Not their time

Alcovy's worst fear came to fruition Friday in its Class AAAA playoff game against Tri Cities. With the score tied at 21, the Bulldogs reeled off four straight touchdowns and the Tigers were unable to counter. Tri Cities tacked on a safety late and cruised to a 51-28 win.

Defense is young but talented

At first glance, 2010 was a wasted year for Alcovy football. What positive could possibly come out of a 1-9 season? Then 2011 came around and things turned around in a hurry. The reasons are many. But at the head of Alcovy's transformation are very much those struggles the Tigers went through - rather what came out of them.

Tigers can claim their first region championship, earn No. 1 seed

The Tigers are on the verge of capturing Alcovy's first outright region football championship. They won the subregion title two weeks ago and have had an extra week to prepare for the title game. The bye week couldn't have come at a better time. It gave the Tigers extra time to prepare for perhaps the best team they'll have faced so far.

Alcovy to play at Northgate

The Region 3-AAAA championship game is set and Alcovy knows who it will play. By virtue of Northgate's 27-24 win over Whitewater Friday, the Vikings won the Region 3B-AAAA regular-season title and will host the Tigers this week to determine the overall region champion.

Tigers fall to Dutchtown, still in control

Alcovy and Newton needed road wins Friday for different reasons. For the Tigers, a win would give them a state playoff berth and at least one home playoff game. He Rams needed a win just to keep their slim playoffs hopes alive. Neither team accomplished its mission.

Who would have thought?

Until 2008, football games at Sharp Stadium in November were almost always meaningless. Save for the occasional season finale that decided Newton, then later Eastside's playoff fate, Sharp Stadium was usually a ghost town that late in the year. Then Eastside started wining region championships and all of a sudden, football games in Covington in November, specifically playoff games, have become common place.

Power Check

There's a different vibe around Alcovy's practices these days. The mood is spirited, coaches are focused and everyone seems, well, happy. After bouncing back from an 0-2 start to reel of a pair of wins, including a drubbing of reigning Class AAAA runner-up Starr's Mill, the Tigers have a bounce to their step not seen in two years.
