WATCH: O’Dea tight end Tucker Ashcraft snags 42-yard touchdown over Notre Dame commit Tobias Merriweather

VANCOUVER, Wash. — O’Dea quarterback John Kohler floated a pass downfield to junior tight end Tucker Ashcraft for a 42-yard touchdown to help the Fighting Irish pull away from Union in the fourth quarter and beat Union 35-17 on Friday night at McKenzie Stadium.

Ashcraft’s touchdown put O’Dea ahead of Union 28-17 eight seconds into the fourth quarter. The pass was corralled in single coverage, with Ashcraft snagging the ball out of tight-marking defensive back Tobias Merriweather, a Notre Dame commit who is among the state’s best athletes.
