The Mercer County football team saw their season come to an end Friday, Oct. 31, after a 34-28 loss to the Paul Laurence Dunbar Bulldogs (4-6).
It looked like the Bulldogs were going to run away with the game as they scored two touchdowns within the first five minutes of the game to take a 12-0 lead.
Mercer County refused to lay down without a fight.
The Titans got on the board on a 60-yard touchdown run by Donald ‘D’ Smith with 6:14 left in the first quarter.
“D ran extremely well tonight,” said Mercer County Head Coach Chris Pardue.
After Dunbar took a 20-6 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by LaDarius Morton, Smith added his second touchdown of the quarter with 3:06 left.
Smith blazed past the Bulldogs defense on his way to a 62-yard touchdown making the score 20-14.
“On both of those runs Aubrey Jones made some really good blocks that allowed D to get free,” added Pardue.
