Hatchets suffer homecoming loss to Mt. Vernon

WASHINGTON — Despite a 42-20 loss on a rainy homecoming night at Hatchet Hollow on Friday, Washington coach Kelly Brashear found a silver lining in the Hatchets’ performance.

“I saw some improvement tonight in a lot of areas. People sitting here in the stands may not have heard nor seen the improvement, but there were little wrinkles of improvement tonight that I saw as a coach,” said Brashear.

The score was more lopsided than what it appeared it might be just before halftime. Washington (0-5, 0-3) tied the score at 20-20 just 2:05 before halftime when Jade Arvin capped a 15-play, 86-yard drive that took 9:00 off the clock with a 14-yard touchdown run. It was the second touchdown run for Arvin, who topped the 100-yard mark with 147 yards on 14 carries.

But Mt. Vernon struck back before halftime, getting a seven-yard run from Austin Guthrie to finish off a five-play, 66-yard drive in just 1:20. Guthrie, who finished with 220 yards on 25 carries and four touchdowns, also ran in for the 2-point conversion to give the Wildcats a 28-20 lead heading into halftime.

The game quickly turned to Mt. Vernon’s favor in the second half. Guthrie again scored on a two-yard run on the opening possession of the half, finishing off a 12-play, 65-yard drive that ran nearly 6:00 of the clock. The Wildcats then recovered a Hatchet fumble on the ensuing kickoff, one of four WHS fumbles for the game. This time it was Mt. Vernon quarterback Riley Snodgrass who did the honors on a five-yard run five plays later to give his team a commanding 42-20 lead.

Mt. Vernon scored first on a four-yard run by Guthrie after the Wildcats recovered a Hatchet fumble on Washington’s second play from scrimmage. But the Hatchets roared back, as a 92-yard kickoff return from Jake Brashear set up a three-yard run by Edrwin Revolorio. Revolorio finished with 63 yards on 14 carries, while Brashear would add a 32-yard kickoff return later in the first half.
