MULTIPLE WEAPONS CONTRIBUTE AT EATON...
The Covington Buccaneers put together a "TEAM EFFORT" in a tough scrimmage at Eaton on Friday.
Covington made good on all six extra point attempts Friday.

AUGUST 10, 2012 - EATON
If Friday's scrimmage at Eaton is any indication, Covington fans can expect to see multiple weapons making plays for the Buccaneers.

"We had a lot of kids contribute tonight," said Covingon coach Dave Miller after an impressive scrimmage by his team. "Even without our two starting backs, we were able to move the ball and control the clock. We also had some kids step up and play well on the defensive side of the ball."

Covington opened the scrimmage by winning the ten-play series 2-0, scoring once on a touchdown run and another on an interception return.

The Buccs then outscored Eaton 4 touchdown to 2 in one half of game-type action, three on touchdown runs and one on a fumble recovery for a score.

And the entire tone for Covington was controlling the time of possession, executing the triple option with mid-season precision. The Buccs weren't one dimensional by any means either. Several times Covington connected on timely pass plays that moved the chains.

"We didn't keep track, so I don't know how many first downs we had," Miller said. "It was a lot, though. I felt we did a good job of controlling the line of scrimmage and our back ran hard."

As well as Covington moved the ball and controlled the clock, it still hurt itself by putting the ball on the ground.

"Especially early on, we didn't protect the football very well," stressed Miller with displeasure in his voice. "Sure, we recovered most of them, but that's something we'll address his week."

Defensively, it was much the same as Covington put forth a very fine performance overall.

The defense scored twice on turnovers and controlled the action with the exception of two big plays and a handful of first downs surrendered on out pattens.

"When you can score twice on defense, that's pretty darn good," Miller said. "I thought we did a nice job defensively other than a couple of big plays they got on us."

Those big plays resulted in the only two scores for the Eagles in the scrimmage.

"The good thing about those is it wasn't about a lack of effort, so that's something we can correct," Miller explained. "That's why we play these (scrimmages)."

And the Buccs have one more scrimmage left as Versailles comes to Covington next Friday.
