Cougars win 'Helmet' for first time since '08

ELNORA – For nearly the entire first half the North Daviess offense couldn’t get in gear, but one play changed all that in a hurry.

North Daviess senior tailback Colton Lengacher ran over, around and through the Washington (0-4) defense on his way to another monster game, totaling three touchdowns in the Cougars’ 47-6 Homecoming victory, which gave North Daviess its first win for the Highway 57 Helmet at home and only third win in the rivalry.

North Daviess (3-1) held a slim 8-6 lead with nine seconds to play in the second quarter, and nearly everyone in attendance expected the Cougars to run the ball out and take their two-point lead into halftime.

North Daviess coach Scotty Helms had other ideas. Brady Helms ran a play action rollout to the right and found junior tight end Jordan Allen down the right sideline for a 50-yard touchdown to take a 15-6 lead and sapped all the momentum from the Hatchets.

“The throw right before the half was obviously a big turning point in the game,” sais North Daviess coach Scotty Helms. “Things had moved pretty slow up to the point and they had really done a really good job controlling possession in the second quarter. We really had intentions of getting a first down and maybe go for it and as things progressed we decided to take one more shot and Brady (Helms) made a good throw and Jordan Allen made a great catch and then made a great move to get into the end zone. Jordan Allen really did a lot to get us that momentum.”

The Cougars took the ball to start the second half and never looked back. Lengacher ran for a 65-yard touchdown on the first play of the second half to extend the lead to 21-6. After a Washington three-and-out, Lengacher busted out for a 61-yard run and the next play Doug Bays scored the fourth North Daviess touchdown of the night from 20 yards out.
