Cougars, Hatchet ready for 'Home sweet home'

(Continued)

The Tigers feature the passing of Colton Wilder, who threw for almost 200 yards against Wood, also threw for nearly that many against Pike Central.

One of his best targets has been receiver Austin Clark, who caught six passes in the opener.

“They are both pretty good and they still have the (senior Deon) Hartimen kid running the ball back there as well,” said Brashear.

“They (Princeton) remind me a lot of Bosse. With the athletes they have, they can cause a lot of problems when they get people open in space. I think we showed against Bosse that we have to do a better job of tackling in space,” added Brashear. “Hopefully we will learn from that and make some changes to our defense.”

The Hatchet will see the return of junior Kirk Creceilus, a 5-8, 285 lb. lineman, which should give WHS some depth on both sides of the ball.

The Hatchets kick off at 8 p.m.

Eastern Greene (0-2) v. North Daviess (1-1)

The Cougars host Eastern Greene on Friday in Cougar Valley. The Cougars fell to North Central on Friday in a 47-28 shootout in Farmersburg. The Cougars did get behind early in their loss to Class A No. 10 North Central, but also showed a tenaciousness with the way they came back in the second half.

“I was very proud of the way we came back in the second half,” said ND coach Scott Helms. “North Central is a very good football team. They have to be the favorite to come out of that sectional up there.”

Again ND rode its workhorse Colton Lengacher all night, as he pounded out 170 yards in the first half and ended with 311.

“Colton is on of those kids where just when you think he is done, he breaks off another 50 or 60 yard run,” said Helms.

“He missed a lot of conditioning this summer with an injury, so we are hoping to get him back on both sides of the ball, because he is a tremendous linebacker as well,” added Helms.
