Hatchets fall at Vincennes

VINCENNES — VINCENNES - Washington was unable to spoil the homecoming of archrival Vincennes as the Alices claimed a 34-15 win in Big 8 Conference football action on Friday.

Washington (0-7, 0-5) started strong defensively as Vincennes (2-5, 2-2) netted just 11 yards and a pair of first downs on their first two possessions of the game. Defensive lineman James Sidebottom came up with a pair of tackles for loss early for the Hatchets, while nose guard Max Lancaster and cornerback Jansen Shake also made big plays for the Washington defensive unit. Travis Harper would also add strong play from the nose guard position after replacing an injured Lancaster in the Hatchet lineup later in the contest.

“From a defensive standpoint, aside from a couple of busted plays that turned into scores for them, I was proud of how our defense played,” said Washington coach Kelly Brashear. “Especially in the first two series. I thought we were very physical, we attacked them in the backfield two or three times and gave them second and long and third and long and made them punt a couple of times.”

But a Hatchet fumble deep in Washington territory late in the first quarter set up Vincennes for a short touchdown drive that ended with Tyjaun Hawkins carrying in from 15 yards out. Mikie Boger’s extra point put the Alices up 7-0 with 11:53 left in the first half.

The Hatchets responded, though, with perhaps their finest drive of the season. Jake Brashear marched WHS 75 yards in 16 plays, including six first downs and pair of fourth down conversions. A Brashear pass to Austin Moody on fourth-and-10 at the Vincennes 13 coupled with a personal foul call on the Alices gave WHS a first-and-goal at the Lincoln one. Fullback Edrwin Revolorio bulled his way into the end zone on the next play, and Moody’s extra point tied the score at 7-7 5:02 before halftime.
