The Mercer County Titans would have liked a different outcome in their season opener Saturday night, but Head Coach David Buchanan still had a positive outlook for the rest of the season after a 55-20 loss to the North Hardin Trojans.
“I saw a ton of positives. I thought in spots we played really well. I thought in spots we executed well,” said Buchanan. “I loved our effort and I never felt like we quit.”
Things didn’t start out well for the Titans. North Hardin recovered the opening squib kick and scored five plays later on a 14-yard pass from Isaiah Bankhead to Martin Marlin.
North Hardin took a 14-0 lead with 6:58 remaining in the second quarter on a two-yard touchdown run by senior Taven Graves, which capped off a six-play, 85-yard drive.
Mercer responded with a score of their own almost five minutes later.
