It only takes one point to win a game and only one loss to end a season. Both of those were true Friday night when the Mercer County football team defeated the previously undefeated Rebels of Boyle County, 31-30, ending their season on their own field.
“We told our kids all week that we could play better than what we’ve been playing,” said Mercer Head Coach Chris Pardue. “I think we’ve been improving over the past three weeks. They worked very hard and this is something they all wanted and they played their hearts out.”
