The Owls finish the season at 6-6 after a tough loss to the #1 ranked Brentwood Academy Eagles. BA played well from the opening kick-off. They displayed excellent balance on offense and good quickness on the defensive side. I thought our boys fought hard but we did not get the start we needed in either half to put any pressure on them. BA will be a tough team to beat playing like they did on Friday.
MERCURY PLAYERS OF THE GAME:
Our offense stuggled to make plays all night but our defense did have some solid moments once again led by the relentless effort of Buchanan Dunavant. We also got a couple of big plays out of Dorian Hopkins who created a fumble that we converted into our only score and also the "hit" of the night on a sack. Those two are our players of the game.
I want to thank the coaches and players for all their efforts this season. It did not go the way we planned but we continued to battle each and every game.
