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.

NEWNAN - Alcovy had a chance to win its first outright region title Friday and a No. 1 seed heading into this week's opening round of the Class AAAA playoffs. After a 42-13 dismantling at the hands of Northgate, losing the region championship might be the last thing on the Tigers' minds.

Wild night of football ends in mass disappointment

Everything that could go wrong for the three Newton County football teams did go wrong Friday night. Newton win but lost, Eastside beat itself and Alcovy forgot to pack its game on the bus and left it at school then got pounded in the region championship game.

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.

Tigers thump Jones County 44-28

Alcovy's improbable turnaround from a 1-9 team and losers of the first two games this season just keeps getting more intriguing. And while the Tigers keep facing tough tasks they keep coming away winners. Maybe it's time to face reality. They're pretty good.

Tigers face Jones Co. for top spot

With three games remaining in the regular season, Alcovy can solidify its playoff chances with a win over Jones County tonight. But it won't come easy.

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.
