Cougars, Hatchet ready for 'Home sweet home'

Both the Hatchets and Cougars hope to rebound from losses on the road, with conference victories on Friday in Week 3.

This week the Hatchets host Big 8 foe Princeton, while ND takes on Eastern (Greene).

WHS (0-2) v. Princeton (2-0)

The Hatchets (0-2) suffered a 62-14 loss to Evansville Bosse at Bosse last Friday. The Hatchets had trouble with the size, speed and numbers of the Bulldogs, as WHS dressed less than 25 players and again they faced a sideline with over 70 bodies on it.

The game did feature breakout effort from Hatchet senior backs Jayden Arvin and Edrwin Revolorio, both of whom rushed for over 130 yards each in the game. Quarterback Jake Brashear was 2-3 through the air, for 10 yards.

“I think we have shown that we can run the ball right at people, even when they stack the box against us,” said WHS head coach Kelly Brashear.

However, the biggest problem in the Hatchet loss, might have been the five turnovers Bosse took advantage of, many of which led directly to scores.

Bosse was well represented by all-state tailback Carrington Crutcher, as he rushed for 221 yards, while QB Ian Nunley was very effective against the Hatchet defense, going 7-8 for 170 and three touchdowns.

This week WHS faces a renewed Princeton team, which put up 55 points in each of the last two wins over Wood Memorial and Pike Central this season.

Second-year coach Waylon Schenk is now 6-6 in first last 12 games, while the Tigers had to go back 100 games to accumulate their previous 6 wins (6-94 since 2002). Prior to last year’s win over WHS, one had to go back to 2004 to find a win over the Hatchets.”Coach Schenk has done a great job of changing the culture down there,” said Brashear.

However, this season the Tigers will dress almost 70 and hope to have their best season since 1993, where they were undefeated in the regular season.
