Cougars powerless to stop Blackhawks

FRENCH LICK — In their final tune up before the sectional, the North Daviess football team walked into a buzz saw at Death Valley.



The Cougars (3-6) lost to Springs Valley (4-5) 54-22 on the Blackhawks senior night behind five touchdowns from senior quarterback Levi Weddle.

Weddle and the Blackhawks offense got off to a fast start and the Cougars defense was powerless to do anything to slow them down.

On their opening drive after a 38-yard kick return by Weddle, the senior quarterback led his offense on a 53-yard drive capped by a 16-yard touchdown run by senior running back Sebastian Baggett. Weddle

ran in a direct snap to give Springs Valley an early 8-0 lead.



The Cougars came out throwing with quarterback Brady Helms completing

his first two passes to Colton Lengacher and Zach Baker for 20 yards,

a change from the run-heavy North Daviess offense. On a third down and one from the Blackhawks 40-yard line , Helms tried to sneak it for a first down, but the junior coughed up the ball and Springs Valley recovered. At the time, it appeared the Cougars missed a big chance to even the

score, but in retrospect it might not have mattered.



The Blackhawks answered with their second touchdown in as many drives

with a 27-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Nachreiner from Weddle on a

first and 20, giving Springs Valley a 14-0 lead. After forcing a North Daviess punt, the Blackhawks offense struck once again, this time on a Weddle 48-yard touchdown run pushing the lead to 20-0 at the end of

the first quarter.



The second quarter brought even more offense from Valley Springs,

Weddle connected with Baggett for a 30-yard touchdown pass extending

the lead to 28-0 nine seconds into the second quarter. The next two

possessions saw more of the same from the Blackhawks offense as they

pushed their lead to 41-0 at halftime.
