Beechwood shuts down CovCath, 27-7

With 23 combined state championships between them, the rivalry will always be fierce when Beechwood and Covington Catholic get together on the football field.

Friday night’s marquee matchup saw the rivalry fever in rare form, as a standing-room and sitting-down only crowd watched the two teams who are only two miles apart on Dixie Highway. Dozens of fans sat on the available green space in the corners of the stadium, or strained to get the best view they could from the baseball field above.

Beechwood fans went home happy after a 27-7 win over the Colonels. Beechwood improved to a perfect 5-0, while CovCath dropped to 2-3.

Beechwood Tigers take the field.

“It was not just for our team, but for our whole city,” said Beechwood senior quarterback Cameron Hergott. “It was a city rivalry. They’re the team down the street. Last year we came up short, and this year it means a lot, especially with the big crowd and the atmosphere.”

Beechwood snapped a six-game losing streak to the Colonels,  which began in head coach Eddie Eviston’s first year. Eviston was 6-0 against the Tigers until tonight.
