SWC Patriots play, win 30-28 over Caddo in tight game

After a two-week break caused by COVID-19, the Southwest Covenant Patriots finally got an opportunity Friday to get back on the field, and they got their first win of the season.
The Patriots used a fourth-quarter two-point conversion to pull off the 30-28 win over Caddo.
It was the first time the Patriots had been on the field since Sept. 11 when they lost to Regent Prep 53-6.
In all, Southwest Covenant has missed half of its games this season because of the pandemic.
The Patriots are scheduled to travel Thursday to Bray-Doyle (2-4).
Last week, Trey Cloud finally got an opportunity to see how his team could play.
The Patriots jumped out to a first-quarter lead when Tyler Kelly grabbed a 50-yard pass from Kyler Beshears. The extra point attempt, however, failed.
Caddo responded in the second quarter with a 43-yard run to tie the game up. Caddo’s PAT also failed.
Kelly scored twice in the second quarter. The first was a five-yard pass from Beshears, while he took the ball in from nine yards out for his third score of the night.
In both cases, the two-point tries were successful.
Caddo, wasn’t finished, though, and tied the game at 22 going to halftime.
One score came on a 52-yard pass play, while the other was the result of a 57-yard punt return.
Neither team scored in the third quarter.
Southwest Covenant’s Anderson Davis scored on a four-yard pass from Beshears to put the Patriots up. Davis also added the two-point conversion, giving SWC a 30-22 lead.
Caddo wasn’t done, however.
Collin Spears finished off a drive with a one-yard run. However, the two-point try failed, giving the Patriots the win.
Kelly had a huge night on the ground, rushing for 195 yards on 33 carries. He scored three touchdowns.
The Patriots had 207 yards rushing.
