Hatchets drop opener at Boonville

(Continued)

BOONVILLE —

Boonville took advantage as Nance moved the Pioneers downfield, with a five play, 94-yard drive ending with a 15-yard run by Nance to move the Boonville margin to 14-0 less than 3:00 before halftime.

The sequence of the events late in the second quarter changed the complexion of the game according to Brashear.

“That’s what we talked about halftime. We said ‘Listen, it’s 14-0 right now and it should be 7-7,’” said Brashear. “We made that mistake and put the ball on the ground on the six-yard line. I know you can woulda, coulda, shoulda, but had we scored right then, that does something for your momentum, and that could have changed our momentum right there.”

Boonville quickly took a three touchdown on the opening drive of the second half as on the third play from scrimmage, Jacob Newton rambled 54 yards for a touchdown. Parker’s point after put the Pioneers up 21-0 with 10:16 to play in the third quarter.

But the Hatchets didn’t quit, holding Boonville scoreless for the remainder of the second half and putting together their best drive of contest beginning late in the third quarter. Starting from his own 30 with 1:37 left in the period, Lancaster, Washington’s freshman quarterback, moved the Hatchets to the Boonville 17 in 11 plays. A pair of big runs (18 and 16 yards respectively) by Jaden Arvin, who topped the Hatchet ground attack with 76 yards on 15 carries, highlighted the drive.

The drive stalled, however, and Brashear sent in Austin Moody to attempt a 27-yard field goal. Moody’s kick was deflected at the line of scrimmage and fell well short of the end zone, ending the Hatchets’ final scoring opportunity of the night.

Brashear’s goal for the second half was to hold Boonville scoreless and put some points on the board. And though the Hatchets didn’t quite achieve either of those goals, Brashear was pleased with the effort.
