Lengacher has record setting effort on Senior Night

ELNORA — North Daviess honored its seniors prior to Friday's game against Springs Valley and then Colton Lengacher had his own personal celebration at the expense of the Blackhawk defense.

North Daviess (7-2) defeated Springs Valley (1-8) 67-24 behind 283 rush yards and seven touchdowns from Lengacher and three touchdown passes from Sam Chapin on Senior Night at Cougar Valley.

The Cougar offense took their opening drive 80 yards in nine plays for a touchdown and some history. Lengacher scored on a 25-yard scamper to become the school’s all-time leading rusher.

The North Daviess defense forced a three-and-out on Springs Valley’s first offensive possession and blocked the Blackhawks first punt of the night – Jordan Allen returned the loose ball to the 1-yard-line. Lengacher did the rest on a 1-yard touchdown run to put the Cougars up 14-0. On the first play of the next drive for Springs Valley, Hector Walker fumbled and the North Daviess defense recovered at the 40-yard-line.

North Daviess went 60 yards on seven plays, which was capped by Chapin's first touchdown of the night — 20 yards to junior Doug Bays. Springs Valley finally drove the ball into North Daviess territory, but quarterback Isaac Brown was intercepted by senior Alex Wittmer at the 5-yard-line. Chapin threw his second touchdown on the night from 16 yards out to senior Brady Helms to put the Cougars up 27-0 and cap the 95-yard drive. North Daviess coach Scotty Helms said getting the passing game going was a point of emphasis.

"To have continued success in the postseason we have to be able to get teams spread out and get into our passing game early and open up some running lanes," Helms said. "Tonight it certainly opened up some lanes for Colton Lengacher and our other backs. That's one facet of the game and that's something Sam Chapin brings to our team that we're really going to benefit from next week and hopefully weeks to come."
