Potosi Edges Desoto 20-14 In Regular Season Finale Friday On J-98

(POTOSI, Mo.) – The Potosi Trojans finished out the regular season with a home victory Friday, winning a close one 20-14 over the Desoto Dragons on J-98.

Both teams were held scoreless in the opening quarter, but on the first play of the second, Potosi punched it into the end zone with Wade Mercille.

The PAT would make it 7-0 Potosi, which would remain the score for much of the first half.

However, with a few minutes left in the second, Potosi turned it over on downs and gave Desoto a short field.

With just over a minute to go in the half, DeSoto tied the game as Briar Fischer connected with John Whited for a score.

Potosi and Desoto would exchange touchdowns in their respective first drives of the third quarter, with Mercille running one in for Potosi.

Then it was Fischer throwing for a score to Ethan Reissing.

In the fourth quarter with the game tied at 14-all, Potosi quarterback Andrew Coleman connected with Devon Marler for his first passing touchdown of the year.

DeSoto blocked the PAT to keep it at 20-14 Potosi.

A controversial set of plays would culminate in Potosi having to punt with mere minutes remaining in the game, giving Desoto a final shot.

But Potosi would secure the win on a game ending interception.

Potosi kneeled down on the next play and won 20-14.

Trojans head coach Ed Haar reacts to the exciting finish.

Meanwhile, Dragons head coach Chris Johnson loved the effort of his team, but wasn’t so pleased with the officiating.
