Covington Catholic moves to 13-0

The magical 2017 season for the Covington Catholic Colonels continued on Friday night as they rolled past the South Oldham Dragons 49-7 to claim a Class 5A regional title and moved to 13-0 in the process.

Like they’ve done in each of their post-season contest so far, the Colonels pretty much put the game away in the opening quarter.

Quarterback A.J. Mayer threw for three touchdowns in the opening frame to build a 21-0 lead. He added two more TD passes in the second quarter and the running clock was on.

Mayer finished the night by completing 13-of-18 passes for 204 yards and five touchdowns, including two to junior Jack Coldiron. Grant Dyer and Jacob Shriver each added rushing scores in the win.

CovCath travels to Bowling Green next week to meet South Warren (11-2) in a state semifinal matchup.
