Serious action in Week 6 for ND, WHS

The Washington Hatchets and North Daviess Cougars both face fierce opponents on Friday night.

The Cougars travel north to face Class A No. 1 Linton, in what has become one of the best rivalries in the southern part of the state. The Hatchet host undefeated Illinois powerhouse Mount Carmel, while hoping to get their first win of the season.

Mt. Carmel (4-0) v. WHS (0-5)

The Hatchets dropped to 0-5 last Friday after a 42-20 homecoming loss to Mt. Vernon, however coach Kelly Brashear still believes his team is improving.

“We did a lot of what we wanted to do,” said Brashear. “We wanted to be in a position to win the game going in to the second half. For the most part, that is where we have been the last three games. However, we also know how tough that is with as small a team as we have.”

That Hatchets had another solid effort from senior tailback Jaden Arvin, who had 148 yards in the loss.

“He is definitely an all-conference type of kid,” said Brashear. “It is tough to get (that honor) at that position, but he is just as good as anyone else.”

The Hatchets saw the return of senior lineman Eric Long last week, and this week, 6-1, 230 lb. sophomore Luke Thornton will make his first appearance of the season.

“You may see some full-house type of stuff with Luke, Jaden and Edrwin all back there,” added Brashear.

The Golden Aces come in to the game with an 4-0 mark that included dominant wins over Big 8 foes Princeton and Mt. Vernon.

Quarterback Reece Metcalf enters with 746 yards in the air and a 51 percent completion rate (51-100). The senior lefty has thrown 11 touchdown passes and has been picked off just three times. As a team, they have outscored opponents, 170-50.

“They have a really nice mix of run and pass,” said Brashear.
