TD with six seconds remaining lifts WW PDF Print E-mail

A hour and a half bus ride against a team ranked in the top 10 in Kentucky’s Class 2A poll didn’t seem to phase West Washington as they traveled to Louisville to play Christian Academy.
The Senators went in, handled business and scored with six seconds remaining giving the team their first win of the season, 35-27.
“We turned a 180 (from the opener against Eastern),” said Head Coach Phillip Bowsman. “It was a great game. It was a lot of fun, but I wouldn’t want it that close every week.
“. . . We prepared and were focused and our execution on game night was tremendous,” Bowsman said.
Part of that execution is credited to quarterback Zach Trueblood who connected with Chad Thompson for four touchdowns.
Thompson’s 11 receptions tied a school record. He had three touches against Eastern and all of them were for pretty big yardage.
Bowsman said after the Eastern game he realized he had to do more to get Thompson involved and the second part of that was Trueblood feeding the hot player.
“There are a lot of things we can do formationally that can get Chad in the mix of things,” he said. “We needed to do that and Zach saw that it’s like basketball. When some one keeps making the shots, you keep getting them the ball. I think Zach saw that and keep getting the ball to Chad.”
Bowsman said even though his team gave up 27 points, two of those game on big plays and another was a rushing touchdown where his team was out of position.
On defense, sophomore Sean Keller, who transferred from Eastern, played his first game as a Senator and made his presences felt immediately.
Bowsman said Kellar had 11 tackles and led the team in WW’s defensive scoring system.
“Kellar had 35 points and the next closest player had 22,” he said.    
The Senators improved to 1-1 with win and will get their first taste of home cooking Friday when they host Springs Valley.
Bowsman said that will be another tough one.
“They are strong,” he said. “They are going to line up and come right at us. They will go double tight and run T, and they run an I-wing back field. They do a lot of power running and play-action passing.”
The game will get underway at 7:30 p.m.    

EHS tennis splits

EHS didn’t win any against New Albany.
Logue, Pickerill and Doebler lost in singles.
Gray and Marshall fell in number one singles and Chism and Hobson lost in number two doubles.

EHS VB loses to PHS
Coming off the heels of their fourth consecutive county championship in a row, the EHS volleyball team hosted Providence on Wednesday, Aug. 24.
The Lady Musketeers battled in the first came, but was eventually swept by the Lady Pioneers, 25-22, 25-17, 25-19.
“The girls are continuing to improve with each game and practice,” said Co-Head Coach Casey Gamero. “Jocelyn Mousty is getting her timing down with attacks and contributed seven kills and numerous blocks.”
Krista Roberts lead the team with 12 kills. 
“We have worked on running a more balanced offense,” Gamero said. “Everyone contributed in the kill category this match.  They would adjust to our outsides so Emily would run some quick sets in the middle which paid off.”
Kayla Beach had four kills in a row.
“Our passing and defense has seen the most improvement but is still work in progress,” Gamero said.  “It took the team longer than I would have liked to adjust to their offense.  We prepared for it in practice but it still took some time to adjust.”
Nikki Nale led the team in digs.

Austin woman
charged with
prostitution in
Superior Court

An Austin woman has been charged with prostitution in Scott Superior Court. Court records indicate that Brittnay Johnson, 22, offered to perform a sexual act in exchange for money on August 17. Johnson was seen on Mann Avenue. When she was approached by a man who was cooperating with Austin police, she reportedly said she was willing to perform the act for $40. Johnson allegedly said she needed the money to pay her rent. The conversation between the woman and man was digitally recorded, according to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Major/Detective Lonnie Noble. In her initial court hearing on Friday, August 19, Johnson entered a not guilty plea to the criminal misdemeanor. Her jury trial was set for October 18 by Judge Marsha Howser. Her original bond was fixed at $10,000 corporate surety/10% cash, but Judge Howser allowed its reduction to $7,500 surety/10% and placed the woman on home detention.
