DECEMBER 27, 2019 - COVINGTON
The Covington Buccaneers defeated neighboring rival Newton 52-38 on Friday in the opening round of the second annual Buccaneer Holiday Classic to set up a showdown with Milton-Union tomorrow night in the championship game.

That will be a rematch from last Saturday’s 47-36 loss to the Bulldogs in Milton’s home gym. In that contest, Covington trailed 25-24 one quarter to play and the Bulldogs outscored the Buccs 22-12 in the final eight minutes to hand Covington its third loss of the season.

Tonight it was all Covington from start to finish as the Buccaneers never trailed throughout.

The Buccs held a 10-6 lead after one and pushed the advantage to 26-15 at the break thanks to a pair of treys by Jake Hamilton and another one by Zach Kuntz.

Kurtz and Hamilton dropped in a couple of buckets each in the third, while Spencer Brumbaugh connected on a trey to help push Covington’s lead to 37-24 with eight minutes to play.

With time becoming a factor, Newton was forced to send Covington to the free throw line in the final frame and the Buccaneers took advantage by dropping in six-of-eight free throws to hold off Newton 52-38.

Covington received a balanced scoring effort as Zach Kuntz led the way with 17 points, while Kaden Presser had 13 points and Jake Hamilton contributed with 11 points.

Kleyson Wehrle was the lone Indian to score in double figures as he matched Kuntz with a game-high 17 points.

Newton will play Graham in the consolation game tomorrow at Covington, while the Buccaneers will tangle with Milton-Union in the championship game.
