It was a game that Kirk Academy Head Coach Ken Chandler felt good about his team’s chances.
After a tough start to the 2019 season, the Raiders took on defending Class A champion Tunica Academy on the road.
It was a game of missed opportunities for Kirk. The Raiders had a touchdown called back on a penalty. They also failed to convert scoring chances in the red zone and came up on the short end of an 8-6 decision.
With the loss, KA drops to 0-3 on the season. Tunica improves to 2-1 on the season.
“It was a disappointing game for us,” Chandler said. “We left too many points on the field.”
