Mercer County had the Glasgow Scotties right where they wanted them Friday night at the Bob Allen Pigskin Classic in Danville with a 14-10 lead midway through the third quarter, but a few costly penalties ruined their hopes of getting their first win of the season.
Penalties were the story of the game as the Titans racked up 105 offensive penalty yards and over 50 defensive penatly yards, including two penalties that turned into major game changers.
Glasgow came out early relying on their running back threat and Western Kentucky University commit, Marquez Trigg.
Mercer came out just looking to get some kind of spark on offense, after only scoring six point a week ago in a loss to Bowling Green.
Glasgow got what it was looking for out of Trigg, but the Titan’s continued to struggle offensively, mostly because penalties hindered the majority of their drives.
“We didn’t cut down on mistakes like we wanted to. We just don’t make those corrections,” said Titan’s Head Coach Chris Pardue after the loss.
