North Daviess kicks off season with a win over Tecumseh, 30-13

LYNNVILLE ---- — The football programs of North Daviess and Tecumseh are very familiar with one another, but sometimes you can’t game plan for a player like Colton Lengacher.

The Cougars (1-0) defeated the Braves 30-13 behind a dominant 280-yard three touchdown performance from Lengacher to give North Daviess its eighth straight win over Tecumseh.

The Cougars opened the game with a touchdown-scoring drive, which featured 65 Lengacher yards and the ground and his first touchdown of the night.

 Tecumseh matched the Cougars strong opening drive with a strong one of its own on its second offensive drive of the night. Senior Adam Grannan’s 22-yard touchdown pass to Spencer Jones gave the Braves a 7-6 lead with 1:46 to play in the opening quarter.

Any momentum Tecumseh had as the first quarter ended was short lived. The Cougars outscored the Braves 15-0 in the second quarter.  Lengacher’s 79-yard touchdown gave the Cougars a 14-7 advantage, a lead they wouldn’t surrender.

North Daviess extended the lead to 22-7 with on a 16-yard run by senior quarterback Brady Helms. By converting consecutive two-point conversions, North Daviess was able to build a comfortable 15-point lead. Just before halftime, Helms connected on a 29-yard pass to Lengacher, but the senior tailback was tackled at the two-yard-line as time expired.

North Daviess dominated the battle at the line of scrimmage as it ran for 304 yards in the first half, Lengacher ran for 189 of 298 yards in the first half. The second half, however wasn’t as productive for the Cougars.

Neither team scored in the third quarter, despite North Daviess having three golden opportunities to put the game away. The Cougars forced three turnovers, but could not put any points on the board.

“In the third quarter we forced three big turnovers, three times we had the ball in excellent field position and we didn’t take advantage,” said North Daviess coach Scotty Helms. “It’s as much my fault as it is the kids. We got to do a better job.”
