CovCath scored on five sustained drives in the first half to jump out to a 32-point lead and never looked back in a 55-20 win over Holmes on Saturday.

The win clinches a two seed and home-field advantage for the first round of the playoffs for the Colonels, who will host a postseason game on Nov. 9.

Sophomore quarterback Ben Dressman threw for three touchdowns, ran for two and completed a pass for a two-point conversion.

Senior Jonathan Scruggs scored two TDs for the Bulldogs, intercepting a pass and returning it 31 yards for a score and running another in from 11 yards out.
