Last tune up before sectional action

Both the Washington Hatchets and North Daviess Cougars will be playing their final regular-season games on Friday. WHS travels to North Knox and ND hosts Springs Valley on Senior night.

The Washington Hatchets may have been beaten 58-7 By 4A power Jasper, but coach Kelly Brashear still felt that it was one of the best efforts his young team has had all season.

The Hatchets fell to 0-8, Brashear was quick to point out that the team accomplished a lot of the goals they had set for the week.

“Jasper did score, but they earned just about every touchdown,” said Brashear. “Most of those scores came on long drives. They really had to grind against our defense.

“Too many times earlier in the season, teams scored on us on one or two plays. That really didn’t happen on Friday.

“We only had 23 players dressed for the game and in spite of that, I thought the team looke rejuvenated and were even having some fun facing that challenge.”

Individually, the Hatchets were led by senior Jaden Arvin, who had 90 yards against the Cats, and Brashear said running against that Jasper defense makes that an even more impressive number.

“He (Arvin) has become a tremendous runner. Edwrin Revolorio was also been a real workhorse for us. He plays middle linebacker and fullback and those are the two toughest positions on the field,” he added.

“I thought Jake (Brashear) threw the ball pretty well too. Earlier in the year, we didn’t have that many people who we thought could catch the ball other than Austin Moody. Now Tyler Guy, Jansen Shake and Tyler Summers have all done a nice job catching the ball. I would say Tyler Guy has become our most improved player over the second half of the season,” added Brashear.
