Hatchets, Cougars looking to rebound in Week 7


Three Cougars who had good night against Linton on the defensive side of the ball included, Andrew Steffey with 10 tackles, and Austin Markel and Logan Turpin with eight each.

Wood comes into the game with an 0-6 mark and has been limited to single-digit scoring in all but one game. In fact, on the defensive side of the ball, the Trojans are giving up 50 points a game. Defense has been a problem in recent years, especially against the Cougars, as ND has outscored the Trojans, 150-10 in the last three seasons.

"We aren't over-looking anyone," said Helms. "Wood is a team that gave Perry Central fits in the first half of that game. If you allow them to get rolling,they will find a way to compete," added Helms.

Helms said senior running back Sam Trader will be Wood's primary weapon.

"You will see him get the bulk of the carries," he added.

"They run the Wing-T and it is the third time we have seen that offense. In years past, we might only see it once a year." said Helms.

ND did lose the services of Brody Lindy due to a high-ankle sprain, but Helms said Austen Byrer will replace him. The Cougars will also have too very athletic editions in senior wide receiver Alex Wittmer and tight end Kelby Byrer, both who came out later in the season and now have enough practices to play.

"We are looking past last week and are really focusing on getting ready for sectional. We are doing a lot less team preparation and now are focusing on individual position time," said Helms.

ND will kickoff at 8 p.m.

Week 7 Washington (0-6) at Vincennes Lincoln (1-5) 7:30 p.m. North Daviess (4-2) at Wood Memorial (0-6) 8 p.m.
