Last tune up before sectional action


This week the Hatchets take on North Knox (4-4), a team coming off a double-overtime loss to North Daviess.

“I think they are a team that will remind you a lot of North Daviess, but they pass the ball more,” said Brashear.

Tailback Jordan Meurer is one of the Warrior’s primary threats, picking up 618 yards on 98 carries, including 18 touchdowns. Meurer also occasionally lines up at quarterback, where he is 10-22 for over 120 yards. Back Austin Miller has almost identical numbers with 615 yards on 98 touches, but with just four touchdowns.

Dustin Davis may also see the ball out of the backfield.

Chris Graman has been NK’s primary quarterback, throwing for just under 700 yards with five touchdowns. His main target has been Brett Ridgeway, who has caught just 12 balls, but getting almost 25 yards per catch.

After North Knox, the Hatchet now know they will draw Brownstown Central in the opening round of sectional. Brownstown comes into the game with an 8-0 mark, however, the game will be played at Hatchet Hollow.

Kickoff for the North Knox game will be 7 p.m. at North Knox.

Springs Valley (1-7) at North Daviess (6-2)

The North Daviess Cougars picked a lot of confidence and a very big win on Friday against North Knox. The Cougars pulled out a double-overtime victory over the potential sectional foe.

“I’m very pleased with how we handled adversity,” said ND coach Scott Helms. “We only ran three plays in the third quarter. Our defense really came up big for us.

“We did a lot of our off-season conditioning has really paid off during the fourth quarter and overtimes.”

Helms was quick to say that senior Doug Bays was big part of the win with his kickoff return for a touchdown and running touchdown. ND’s Colton Lengacher rushed for 207 yards which just put him over the 2,000-yard mark for the season. Logan Turpin also added 51 yards.
