Water, Water, Everywhere for the Tigers

The final game at Woody Woods Stadium in Bolivar was a lot shorter than expected as Bolivar and Covington played a rain-shortened game that saw the Chargers beat the Tigers 47-20.
The game, which had no bearing on the playoff seedings for either team, was shortened to eight minute quarters in the second half as rain made playing conditions treacherous.
“No regrets,” said Bolivar Head Coach Woodrow Lowe. “We wanted both teams to get out without any injuries and we accomplished that.”
The Tigers jumped out to an early lead as sophomore Omar Jones returned the opening kickoff 74 yards for a touchdown.
Covington, however, scored on their first seven possessions behind 429 yards rushing and the Tigers couldn’t keep up the pace. Bolivar tied the score at 14-all with 6:09 left in the first half on a Trey Lowe 23-yard pass to Josh Sturgis, but Covington scored twice more in the half to lead 28-20 at the break. Bolivar only got the ball three times in the second half, and failed to score. Covington scored on every possession except the final time they had the ball, when the Chargers took a knee to run out the clock.
