Arvin has big night in Hatchet loss

WASHINGTON — The Washington Hatchets’ offense got untracked in a big way at Hatchet Hollow on Friday.

Unfortunately for the home team, the Princeton Tigers’ offense did the same thing.

Jaden Arvin recorded the third best performance running the football in Hatchet history but it wasn’t enough, as Princeton remained perfect on the season with a 60-34 win over Washington in Big 8 Conference action.

Arvin, who topped 100 yards rushing in last week’s loss at Evansville Bosse, was well past that figure at the half against Princeton (3-0, 1-0). Arvin finished with 318 yards on 27 carries and touchdown runs of 29 and 20 yards in the first quarter. That rushing total leaves Arvin behind only Trey Parsons (327 yards in a 2011 game) and Joe McCormick (322 yards in a 2010 game) in Hatchet history for most yards rushing in a game.

And Arvin wasn’t alone. Quarterback Jake Brashear also topped the century mark on the ground with 108 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns, including a 62-yard scoring sprint in the fourth quarter. Brashear added an eight-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Edrwin Revolorio netted 58 yards on 15 carries and added a three-yard run to pay dirt in the third quarter.

Overall, Washington (0-3, 0-2) gained 481 yards on the ground. The Hatchet backs benefitted from an offensive line – tight end Max Lancaster, tackles Kirk Crecelius and Jeff Harrawood, guards James Sidebottom and Cameron Meade, and center Daniel Davis - which time and again opened massive holes in the Tiger defense. The Hatchets gained just 10 yards through the air, meaning Princeton was sitting on the WHS ground game throughout the contest, making the Hatchets’rushing totals all that more impressive.

“With our inability at this point to throw the ball very much, teams are just … in the second half, they had seven men on the line, sometimes eight men on the line with two linebackers,” said Washington coach Kelly Brashear. “Once we get to the second level, it’s green pasture. But I thought even though they had seven or eight men on the line we were still able to block them man for man and gain yardage.”
