Tigers blank Morrow 29-0

JONESBORO — The Tigers had everything working their way in their 29-0 win over Morrow at Tara Stadium on Thursday.

Alcovy (5-2 overall, 2-1 Region 2-AAAAAA) scored on offense, defense and they added points to the scoreboard with their special teams as well.

“We played really good on defense. Offensively, we dominated the game,” Alcovy head coach Kirk Hoffman said.

The Tigers offensive scores came from two short-yardage runs by Okon Godwin. One was was from four yards out with the other from the 2-yard line.

Alcovy’s defense did a good job stopping Morrow (1-6, 0-3) from moving the ball holding them to less than 50 yards of total offense and three first downs. Alcovy’s defense added nine points to their total with a safety and 22-yard interception return by Tyrel Cooper.

On special teams, D’Anthony Bell had a 42-yard punt return for a touchdown.

However, not everything they did worked the way they wanted.

“We just made some mistakes in the redzone again that killed some drive,” Hoffman said. “We’ve got to start scoring when we get into the redzone. We were there three or four times and either had a penalty or missed field goals. Just stuff we have to get better at down there. We’re getting better every week and we need to continue to get better.”
