Hatchets suffer homecoming loss to Mt. Vernon

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Washington’s Cameron Meade recovered a Mt. Vernon fumble at the WHS 46 on the Wildcats’ next possession. Three plays later the Hatchets took the lead when Arvin raced 48-yards for a touchdown. Brashear’s pass to Austin Moody for two points gave WHS a 14-6 lead midway through the first quarter.

But that lead was shortlived as Mt. Vernon’s Kaleb Grabert took the kickoff and scampered 72 yards for a touchdown. A Snodgrass pass to Kris McKinney tied the score at 14-14 with 6:10 left in the first quarter. Guthrie added a 43-yard run late in the first quarter for a 20-14 Wildcat lead.

Brashear felt his team was its own worst enemy, including the four fumbles and 35 yards on five penalties.

“We killed ourselves with penalties, turnovers, just shooting ourselves in the foot. We drive all the way down and fumble, we get a big penalty and back us up,” said Brashear. “Those little things continue to plaque us week in and week out.”

Several Hatchets had solid nights. Senior Dillon Brower got the start at defensive back and was a “pleasant surprise” according to Brashear before suffering a shoulder injury in the second half. The extent of Brower’s injury was unknown following the game. Sophomores Tyler Guy and Jansen Shake started at the split end slots for WHS and helped free up the Hatchet ground attack with their blocking.

And Brashear was happy with the performance his quarterback and kick returner.

“Jake kind of broke out tonight. He had a couple of big kickoff returns, he had a couple of nice runs, and he did a good job running the offense tonight,” said Brashear.

In addition, a pair of freshman starters - Max Lancaster and Moody - continue to excel for Brashear. Lancaster came up with a big hit on fourth down that stopped a Mt. Vernon drive deep in Hatchet territory in the first half.

“To throw in Max and Austin Moody as full time starters … I can remember being a freshman and just being scared to death, so I can empathize with them,” said Brashear. “I told both of them they don’t have time to be true freshman this year, they’re going to be thrown right into the fire.”

Washington will host Mt. Carmel on Friday.
