COVINGTON – Nine different backs hit the scoring column at Bradford last evening as Coach Tisdale's Covington Buccaneers hung up victory number two with a 62 to 0 rout on the Railroaders.

The Buccaneers simply outclassed Bradford in height, weight, depth and experience as Coach Tisdale used all his players, including four freshmen and 10 sophomores, during the majority of the game.

The touchdown parade came quickly, only two minutes after the Railroaders' kickoff, as Covington marched 66 yards in six plays, with Ed Shilt climaxing the drive on a 24-yard sweep. Terry Swallow plunged for points after to give the Buccs an 8-0.

Two minutes later Shilt was in the endzone again, and then converted for a 16-0 margin, with four minutes remaining. Then Buddy Clark crashed straight up the middle for a 46-yard TD, Swallow tallied points after and Covington had a 24 to 0 first quarter advantage.

Ron Apwisch added six points early in the second period to run the count to 30-0 and was quickly followed, after a Bradford fumble, with Ron Lamb's 24-yard touchdown jaunt. Apwisch added two more as Covington moved away 38-0 with three minutes and 15 seconds remaining in the first half.

Less than a minute later, Swallow scored on a 21-yard end sweep, Brad Barker tallied points after on a keep play and Covington led 46-0. A blocked punt set the stage for Bill Rudy's eight-yard tackle smash and Ed Shilt's conversion plunge as the half ended with Covington on the long end of a 54-0 score.

Little Denny Cain tallied Covington's last touchdown with 1:15 remaining in the third quarter. Dwight Garber converted for the 62-0 score.

FROM THE PRESSBOX:
Covington registered 18 first downs to Bradford's two. The Buccs went to the air seven times, completing one. The Railroaders connected on four of nine attempts. Covington fumbled five times, losing the ball once. Bradford committed three bobbles and gave up the pigskin twice. The Buccs lost 75 yards by penalties to Bradford's 35. Covington's underclassman gained a wealth of experience…crowd-pleaser was the scampering of freshman scatback Denny Cain.

Buccaneer defender Ed Shilt #23.
