Will Shipley's 7v7 game-winning grab

By Tim Winters, 07/12/19, 7:45PM EDT


Weddington wrapped up group play with a 6-1 record at the Powerade 7-on-7 Invitational held at the SportsPlex in Matthews.

Throughout the morning and afternoon, they were many big plays turned in by Warriors’ offense and defense. Few were as big as the Will Shipley’s game-winning catch to break an 18-18 tied with Brownsburg High School from Indiana. Weddington would go on to defeat Brownsburg, 26-18.

This play was a natural selection for a County Clip but as you’ll see Weddington’s southpaw QB, Dustin Mercer, played a big part maintaining concentration after dropping back under the Powerade tent to throw a strike to Shipley who fought off two Brownsburg defensive backs in the end zone to secure the catch and victory.
