Hatchets fall at Evansville Bosse

EVANSVILLE — EVANSVILLE – A second consecutive trip south on a hot and humid Friday night turned out with the same result for the Washington Hatchets in a 62-15 loss to Evansville Bosse at Enlow Field.

After falling to a tough Boonville squad last week, Washington (0-2) found the going even tougher against an even better opponent in a talented Bosse (1-1) outfit that scored 48 points in a loss at Jeffersonville in the Bulldogs’ opener.

Bosse scored in just about every way possible in running up a 41-0 lead at the half. Carrington Crutcher, who led all rushers with 182 yards on nine carries, scored on runs of five and 60 yards in the first half. Bulldog quarterback Ian Nunley threw touchdown strikes of 20 and 15 yards to Arius Carter in the opening half, while Nick Hansen added a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown and Bo Burkhart recovered a Hatchet fumble in the end zone for another score.

By the half, Bosse had racked up 206 yards of total offense on just 12 plays as the athletic Bulldogs proved more than the Hatchets could handle. Washington coach Kelly Brashear said the game highlighted the differences between the style of football played in the Hatchets’ Big 8 Conference and the Bulldogs' brand of football.

“It’s hard for our type of kids. We don’t have great athletes, I’m just going to tell it like it is. But we have kids that play with a lot of heart, and they give you everything they have. Our conference is built that way. We’re not the fastest conference, we’re a power conference, where most everybody runs the football,”said Brashear. “Bosse has a lot of quick, athletic kids who give us problems in space, and we just don’t see that very often.”

The Hatchets didn’t get their power running game going until midway through the second quarter. Using backs Jaden Arvin and Edrwin Revolorio, Washington moved 67 yards on 13 plays to the Bosse 15. But after having twice converted fourth downs to keep the drive alive, the Hatchets failed on their third fourth down attempt and turned the ball over on downs with 6:31 left in the half trailing 35-0.
