Covington Catholic shook off an early Ryle touchdown and AJ Mayer and the explosive Colonels offense were off to the races in a 49-17 win Friday night as CovCath opened Dennis Griffin Stadium under permanent lights for the first time. Mayer, a Miami University recruit, completed 14 of 23 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions and added 18 yards on three carries and two more touchdowns. “He’s the dude,” CovCath coach Eddie Eviston said. “He made some bigtime throws tonight.” Mayer and the Colonels reeled off 49 straight points after Ryle took a 7-0 lead on the first play from scrimmage — a 75-yard swing pass from junior quarterback Jake Smith to senior running back Jake Chisholm.
