Senior quarterback Ian Nunley threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns in the Class 3A Bulldogs’ loss at Jeffersonville last Friday.
“We know this is a good team,” said Brashear. “Anyone who scores that many points against a 6A team, has got to be good. “We know they are athletic and we will have to be disciplined against a team like that.”
Kickoff will be at 8 p.m.
North Daviess (1-0)
The Cougars opened the year on the road and returned with a 31-13 win over Tecumseh. This week they travel north to face North Central of Farmersburg.
The T-Birds come into the game with a top 10 ranking in class A, and did little to show that was not legitimate, after beating Union 66-6 in their opener. The T-Birds were led by seniors Chase VanSchoyck and Dillon Bailey. VanSchoyck rushed for 319 yards and scored five touchdowns. Bailey rushed for 111 yards and scored four touchdowns.
Anthony Risley scored the other touchdown for NC in the game.
“This is a very good football team we are playing on Friday. This will be a real teast for us to show us where we are,” said ND coach Scott Helms.
The Cougars hope to avenge a 42-18 loss last season and with a performance like senior back Colton Lengacher had last week, that will be a very real possibility. He had a dominant 280-yard, three-touchdown performance to give North Daviess its eighth straight win over Tecumseh.
“He is the real deal,” added Helms. “He at 6-3, 240 lbs., running a 4.6, he has Division 1 potential.”
Most of the Cougar offense was delivered in the first half, racking up 308 yards of offense, however, the Cougar defense dominated the third quarter, shutting out Tecumseh and forcing three turnovers.
Logan Turpin added 64 yards and Doug Bays had 51, while quarter back Brady Helms added 34 on the ground and 30 in the air.
