Hatchets fall to Mt. Carmel

WASHINGTON — The Washington Hatchets found out just how good Mt. Carmel in general and Levi Laws in particular are in a 48-13 Big 8 Conference loss at Hatchet Hollow on Friday.

Mt. Carmel (5-0, 3-0) scored a pair of touchdowns before three minutes had elapsed in the first quarter, and both times it was Laws doing the honors against Washington (0-6, 0-4).

On the game’s opening drive, Laws took a 47-yard pass from Golden Aces quarterback Reece Metcalf into the end zone to cap a four-play, 68-yard drive. Caleb Kline’s point after gave Mt. Carmel a 7-0 less than a minute into the contest.

A three-and-out by Washington on the Hatchets’ first possession quickly turned into Mt. Carmel points when Laws ran back a Clayton Johnson punt 70 yards for a touchdown and a 13-0 Aces lead.

Those two quick scores opened the floodgates for Mt. Carmel, which led 28-0 after one quarter and 48-0 at halftime. Laws added a 73-yard touchdown run in the opening half, while Metcalf threw touchdown passes of 13 yards to Thomas Allen, nine yards to Austin Thompson, and 15 yards to Daxton Peach. Sean Flickinger rounded out the scoring in the first half with a 12-yard run 3:27 from the end of the half as the Aces took a 48-0 lead into the locker room.

It was another difficult defensive outing for the Hatchets, something which coach Kelly Brashear’s team will have to improve upon when Washington travels to Vincennes this week.

“We have to get a lot better on defense in a week’s time,” said Brashear. “Ultimately, it all comes back on me. But we just don’t tackle well, we’re out of position, we’re washed down, we’re just not very disciplined.

“We just have to keep working hard at this, and try to get those kids to believe in what we’re selling to them,” said Brashear. “There will be some success that comes with being disciplined at your position. Once we get that we’ll be okay.”
