Hatchets fall to Mater Dei on road

EVANSVILLE - Hot and cold spelled doom and gloom for the Washington Hatchets in a 60-40 loss at Evansville Mater Dei on Friday.

Mater Dei (3-4) was hot and visiting Washington (2-6) was cold as the Hatchets dropped their third straight game of the season.

The Wildcats dialed long distance six times in the first half on the way to a 32-12 lead at intermission. Matt Martin hit a trio of trey’s in the first quarter and Devan Straub added a three as Mater Dei fronted 18-5 after eight minutes of action, a period which saw the Wildcats hit 3-pointers on three consecutive possession late in the period.

Straub added two more three’s in the second quarter, which Mater Dei won 14-7. Overall, Mater Dei was 12-27 in the first half from the field in the first half compared to just 3-18 for the Hatchets. In addition, WHS was out rebounded 16-11 and committed six turnovers in the opening 16 minutes.

For the game, Mater Dei shot 23-47 compared to Washington’s 14-50. The Wildcats led 53-22 after three quarters and by as many as 27 points early in the fourth quarter.

Washington coach Gene Miiller was unhappy following the game.

“We had a team show us what playing hard is all about. They came out and were ready to play, and they got after us. That’s one thing we should have learned tonight is how to play hard,” said Miiller. “I just told the kids in the locker room ‘We’re going to see a new Hatchet team tomorrow night. Things are changing, it’s going to be a new team from here on out.

“There may be different guys play from here on out. But it’s going to be a different team from here on out, I guarantee you,“ said Miiller. “You come out and watch this team, we’re going to play hard the rest of the season. We’re going to give a lot better effort than we did in tonight’s ballgame.”
