AUGUST 13, 2021 - COVINGTON
The Covington Buccaneers took one on the chin - on the scoreboard - in the final scrimmage against Anna before next week’s season opener at St. Henry. After three quarters of varsity action the scoreboard read 36-0 in favor of Anna.

BUT, the scoreboard doesn’t tell the entire story for the Buccaneers. Yes, Anna was able to tack on 36 points, but there were some positives Covington can take away from the scrimmage.

First, the effort was solid overall. There were some lapses from time to time, but more often than not the kids played with relentless effort.

Second, Covington did make some plays on both sides of the ball. Perhaps the biggest and most impressive sequence of plays came when Anna had the ball facing a third-and-one inside the Covington twenty after the Buccs turned the ball over via an interception. On back-to-back plays the Covington defense stuffed the Rockets to gain possession on downs.

The Buccaneer defense also recorded several sacks and stops in the backfield to put the Rockets behind in the chains and recorded a critical interception when Anna was knocking on the door for more points.

Offensively, Covington was able to move the ball at times with hard-nosed runs and quick passes beyond the first down marker. Unfortunately, holding penalties killed a least three potential scoring drives for the Buccs.

The third positive - and likely the most positive aspect for the Buccaneers - the positive attitudes of the Buccaneers remained constant throughout. Yes, there were times of frustration, but the Buccaneers put those feelings aside and focused on the next play.

What killed Covington in the scrimmage was the inability to prevent the big play and miscues on special teams that resulted into two block punts. This was due to two critical factors - missed tackles and missed assignments. Fortunately, the mistakes are correctable.

Only once in the contest did Anna put together a time-consuming drive - and that was late in the first quarter for its first score after Covington moved the ball into Rocket territory only to have a pass picked off on a nice defensive play.

All other scores by the Rockets came on big plays from missed tackles and assignment mistakes or from short fields due to the blocked punts.

In the end, it was a night that once again showed Covington’s youth and inexperience.

But, it also showed the improvement from a week ago and the potential for the future.

Because the scoreboard didn’t tell the entire story.
