Hatchets fall in sectional to Brownstown Central

The Washington Hatchets fought hard but in the end couldn’t match the firepower of one of Indiana’s best high school football teams as unbeaten Brownstown Central claimed a 62-30 Class 3A Sectional 31 win at Hatchet Hollow on Friday.

Washington (1-9) had one of its best outings of the season offensively, racking up nearly 400 yards of total offense and scoring the most points of any opponent to date against fourth-ranked Brownstown Central (10-0). But the Hatchets found out early in the second quarter just how explosive the Braves can be offensively.

After the teams traded scoring drives and were tied 7-7 heading into the second quarter, Brownstown Central took control of the contest by scoring three touchdowns in a span of 1:38 early in the second stanza.

Jacob Wilson, who caught a 10-yard scoring pass from Clay Brown in the first quarter, scored on a two-yard run with 9:27 left in the half for a 14-7 Brownstown lead. The Braves recovered a Jaden Arvin fumble on the Hatchets’ first play from scrimmage following that touchdown, and quickly went up 20-7 when Caleb Wischmeier rambled 29 yards on the next play.

On the kickoff following that score, Brownstown recovered a fumble by Dalton Devine, and two plays later John McKinney scored from 10 yards out to give the Braves a 27-7 lead with 7:49 left before halftime.

The two fumbles at critical times as well as 86 yards lost on nine penalties meant the Hatchets were often their own worst enemy according to coach Kelly Brashear.

“Penalties killed us tonight, and those turnovers. It just seemed like it just snowballed into negative things for about half a quarter,” said Brashear. “We went in at halftime down, we’re not a team that’s going to put points on the board fast, we like to grind it out.”

Another Wilson touchdown grab of a Brown pass, this time from 31 yards, plus Skyller Lewis’ fourth extra point of the half gave the Braves a 34-7 late in the second quarter.
