Hatchets, Cougars looking to rebound in Week 7


Of the six completions, Brashear averaged 16 yards per catch, with Austin Moody, Jansen Shake, Arvin, Tyler Summers and Luke Thornton all making catches

However, neither team is expected to put the ball in the air a significant amount this Friday.

"Lincoln has two very good backs, so they are a lot like us. They are going to try to run it right at us," said Brashear. "We are going to have to contain them at the line of scrimmage."

Lincoln is led by Brandt Nowaskie and Ty'juan Hawkins. Against Northview, Hawkins rushed for 117 yards, while Nowaskie had 90. Lincoln will start a freshman quarterback Grant Oexmann, whom Brashear said has done a very steady job of running the offense.

The game will be Lincoln's Homecoming and kickoff is expected at 7:30 p.m.

ND (4-2) at (0-6) Wood Memorial

North Daviess travels south to play Wood Memorial on Friday night, hoping to rebound after their loss to Class A No. 1 Linton.

And for Wood Memorial's sake, this might be a very bad game to catch the Cougars in, as ND fell 55-0 to the potential sectional foe Linton and should be hungry for a win.

But in spite of the loss, ND coach Scott Helms still felt there were teachable moments in that game.

"We were exposed. This game was a blessing and shows where we are as a team. We found areas that we really need to shore up in the next three weeks. We will use this game as a teaching tool and with the attitude and work ethic of these young men, we will improve at the rate we need to improve by the post season," said Helms.

Even the state's leading rusher, ND's Colton Lengacher, was shut down by Linton, being held to just 68 yards and no scores. However, Lengacher should still go over the 1,500-yard mark against Wood Memorial as he continues to march toward the ND record book.
