Titans Offense Struggles in Loss to Anderson County

Offensive struggles have been the story all for the Mercer County Titans Football Team, and those struggles hit a low point in a 36-0 loss to the Anderson County Bearcats Friday night.

The Titans managed only 21 total-yards for the game (23 yards rushing, and a loss of 2 yards passing), and had only two first downs.

The Titans, who were shut-out for the first time since the 2011 season, when they lost to Boyle County 28-0, never seemed to find a rhythm offensively, which wore down the defense.

The Bearcats offense came out fast, scoring on their first three possessions.

Up 21-0, it appeared Anderson County was going to score again, just before the half, but Mercer County senior Austin Sparrow made a touchdown saving interception in the end-zone, which appeared to give the Titans a little momentum going into the locker room. That play ended up being the only bright spot for Mercer County in the game.
