The two-point conversion was good, and MCHS tied the game at 8-8. Telfair took the lead back in the second, but missed the extra point try. They led 14-8 over the Eagles. They added one more score in the first half to take a 22-8 lead. As time ran out in the first half MCHS's Mario Ortega hit a 34-yard field goal to close the halftime score to 22-11. That kick was set up by a big 50-yard run by Denmark.
MCHS added one more touchdown in the fourth quarter on an 80-yard touchdown pass from Davidson to Brandon Denmark. They again got the two-point conversion, but fell in the game 22-19. Davidson had 135 yards passing with Denmark pulling in 96 receiving yards and 57 rushing yards. This week MCHS will be on the road at Baconton Charter with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
