Hatchets, Cougars looking to rebound in Week 7

Both North Daviess and Washington will look to rebound after their worst defeats of the season last week. ND fell to Class A No. 1 Linton, 55-0, while Washington lost 48-13 to Mount Carmel (Ill.). This week, both teams hope to get back on track, playing teams that come into the game with a combined 1-11 record, in Vincennes Lincoln and Wood Memorial.

(0-6) WHS at (1-5) Vincennes Lincoln

The Hatchets hope to get in the win column with a game WHS coach Kelly Brashear believes is "very winnable."

"We think this is a winnable game but I guarantee that coach (Jon) Heiden his telling his kids the very same thing at Lincoln," said Brasher. "It sounds cliche, but it will come down to which team wants it the most."

Brashear is a former Lincoln assistant and has had tremendous success against the Alices over the last several years. Before last year's 42-7 loss to the Alices, WHS had won five straight under Brashear.

This year, Lincoln comes into the game with a 1-5 mark, with the only win coming over Boonville. 18-13 in week 2.

"We also played well against Boonville, but had some key people out in that game," said Brashear. "I think the way both of us played against Boonville is an example of how close this game should be."

After going 8-3 last season, including a heartbreaking 7-0 loss to Jasper, this year has taken on a different flavor for the Alices. VL fell 48-0 to Terre Haute South and 62-2 to Jasper, but played better against Northview last week, 28-14.

Washington is also coming off a loss, as the Hatchets had less than 100 yards rushing against Mt. Carmel last week, with tailback Jaden Arvin posting a season-low 35 yards. However, senior quarterback Jake Brashear had his most productive night of the year through the air, going 6-18 for 97 yards.

"We really thought that the second half of the game would be a good chance for us to work on some things we wanted to work on, somethings we have not been that good at," said Brashear.
