Hatchets fall to Lincoln


But the Hawkins’ scoring run earlier in the quarter woke up the Vincennes offense. Two plays after Revolorio’s touchdown, Hawkins reached pay dirt again, this time on a 63-yard scamper to give Vincennes a 14-7 lead.

A three-and-out by the Hatchets returned the ball to Vincennes with 2:01 on the clock. That was plenty of time for the Alices, who picked up 67 yards on three running plays, the last being a 23-yard run by Hawkins with 1:09 left in the half. Hawkins finished the half with 103 yards rushing after losing a combined 11 yards on his first two carries as the Alices led 21-7 heading into the locker room.

The second half didn’t start any better for the Hatchets. Hawkins picked off a Brashear pass on Washington’s second play from scrimmage after intermission, setting up the Alices at the WHS 25. The score reached 27-7 four plays later when Vincennes quarterback Grant Oexmann hit Brandt Nowaskie for 22 yards and a touchdown on fourth down. Nowaskie would add a four-yard touchdown run for Vincennes in the fourth quarter.

Aside from their first half scoring drive, the Hatchets had trouble moving the ball until the fourth quarter, when Washington finished off a long scoring drive with a three-yard scoring run by Jaden Arvin with :07 left in the game. Washington actually out gained Vincennes 269-246, but 112 of those yards came in the fourth quarter when the Hatchets were facing the Alices’ second team defense.

“Offensively, we had too many penalties (eight penalties for 65 yards), we just keep killing ourselves. We’re our own worst enemy on offense right now,” said Brashear. “That was real disappointing. I felt like coming into this game we would be able to move the ball at will. And we struggled for everything tonight.”

Arvin finished with 141 yards on 32 carries, while Brashear topped the 100-yard mark with 106 yards on 10-15 passing. Moody, Tyler Summers, Shake, and Dalton Devine each caught a pair of passes from Brashear while Luke Thornton and Tyler Guy caught one pass apiece.

Washington returns home on Friday to host Jasper.
