Princeton led 16-13 after one quarter, but the Hatchets took a 20-16 lead early in the second quarter on Brashear’s first rushing touchdown of the night. The Hatchets appeared to have Princeton stopped cold on the Tigers’ next possession, but a fake punt and pass completion from punter Michael Kermode to Mason Rode kept the ball in Princeton’s hands. Wilder finished off the drive with a 13-yard pass to Clark for a 24-20 Tiger lead, a margin which reached 31-20 when Wilder and Clark hooked up again just :10 before halftime. Princeton led 46-28 after three quarters of action.
The Hatchets travel to North Daviess on Friday looking to defend their possession of the Times Herald Highway 57 Helmet.
