BUCCS HOST MILTON IN FIRST SCRIMMAGE...

AUGUST 7, 2018 - COVINGTON
In their fourth day of full contact, the Covington Buccaneers were able to finally hit someone in a different color jersey as Milton-Union came to town for an annual scrimmage between two traditional playoff caliber programs.

And Covington showed signs of being a really good football team as it made plays in all three phases of the game.

It all started on the first play of the scrimmage as junior Josh Latimer blocked an attempted field goal by Milton. Latimer also blocked a punt later in the special teams' portion of the scrimmage.

However, there were things Covington will address on special teams as the Buccs had a couple of poor snaps on field goal attempts and then were indecisive at times fielding punts.

The two teams then went to a ten-play situation with the starting offenses receiving two possessions.

On their first possession penalties killed the Buccs, but Covington regrouped on its second ten-play sequence and scored on a 40-yard pass from Cade Schmelzer to Andrew Cates.

Defensively, the Buccaneers swarmed to the football and prevented Milton-Union from reaching the end zone on its two varsity ten-play possessions.

After the junior varsity squads took their turn at two ten-play possessions, the varsity teams took to the field again for one series each of down-and-distance with Covington receiving the ball first.

Challenged verbally by Coach Cates, the Buccaneers accept the challenge by taking the ball 70 yards methodically down the field for a score.

Junior fullback Gage Kerrigan got things started with a powerful run up the gut and Schmelzer followed with a quick pass to Andrew Cates to put the Buccaneers inside Milton territory.

After a beautiful catch by senior Parker Dysinger put Covington at the Bulldog 15, sophomore Duncan Cooper did the rest by outracing the Milton defense to the end zone for the score.

Milton then had its turn at a down-and-distance possession, but was only able to gain five yards on four plays to end the scrimmage.

In all, the Covington varsity scored twice and the Buccaneer junior varsity scored twice. Milton wasn't able to reach the end zone in either of the varsity and junior varsity scrimmages.

It was a solid effort for Covington in the first full contact scrimmage, but the Buccaneers know they still have plenty of work to do before the season opener against St. Henry.

The next opportunity to show more improvement comes this Saturday morning at Eaton.
