Hatchets, Cougars stay on the road

Both the Washington Hatchets and North Daviess Cougars stay on the road this Friday night. Washington heads south playing Evansville Bosse, while ND travels to the north play North Central.

Washington (0-1)

The Hatchets look to recover from a 21-0 loss to Boonville last week, with a visit to Bosse. Although the Hatchets were shutout, the play from the shorthanded 22-man team did not disappoint coach Kelly Brashear.

“I hate to lose as much as anyone, but the score was not indicative of how we played. I was proud, our kids. They did not give up and stayed in the game,” said Brashear. “We really only played 14 kids and I think we made mistake, they were most likely out of fatigue.”

This week the Hatchets get the return of senior quarterback Jake Brashear, punter-receiver Clayton Johnson and junior split end Jansen Shake.

“We asked a lot of (freshman) Max (Lancaster) last week and he did a good job (at quarterback), but Jake brings a lot of other options, both running and throwing. It will also open up Edrwin (Revolorio) a little more. They were able to key on Edrwin. I did think that Jayden Arvin and Dalton Devine both did a nice job of running the ball, but they spent most of the second half blitzing because they knew what we were going to do.”

Brashear thought that the defensive side of the ball also played well, but thought that some missed tackles and big plays were the difference in the game.

“We were led in tackles by Austin Moody, which was great for him, but you can’t have a safety leading you in tackles,” said Brashear.

However, the Hatchets did lose senior receiver Tyler Summers to a shoulder injury last week.

This week the Hatchets face Bosse, who is coming off a 48-point performance against 6A Jeffersonville, in a 60-48 loss. The Bulldogs are led by Carrington Crutcher, a preseason all-state running back, who rushed for 180 yards against Jeffersonville’s.
