Moeller Breezes Past Cov Cath, 39-0
Bryan Burke - The River City News
Covington Catholic had been riding high on the wave of momentum after breezing past Boone County and Dixie Heights in consecutive wins, but that wave crashed hard upon the shores of reality as they were manhandled by a burlier Moeller team, 39-0, at Lockland Memorial Stadium in Cincinnati.

Moeller jumped out to a quick 15-0 first-quarter lead after turning two turnovers into touchdowns. The Colonels showed life in the second quarter when quarterback Adam Wagner hit Lee McClure streaking down the sidelines on a go route. McClure had a step on his man to the end zone, but fumbled the ball out of bounds near the 20-yard line. A few plays later, the Colonels turned the ball over on downs.

“There were a couple of plays that snowballed on us,” said Covington Catholic head coach, Dave Wirth. “We moved the ball well in the first half. We were down a guy or two in the second half and that certainly didn't help. We took a couple of calculated chances because we knew we had to create a possession or two during this game because of their size.”

The size difference on paper was noticeable, but was indeed stark in person. A few Moeller players have NFL frames already and finding running room inside the hashmarks proved impossible for the Colonels against such girth. They tried some designed runs for Wagner, but each time he was only able to gain minimal yards and took a licking from the savage Moeller tacklers. Cov Cath generated only 49 yards on 26 carries. By the end, Wagner looked spent.
