20121108 Football Mercedes vs Mission lg-22A Mercedes defender breaks up a pass intended for Mission's Robert Veliz during the first half of the Eagles 23-14 loss to the Tigers. Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraCoach Mario Peña entered the 2012 season with three goals for his Mission Eagles football team. The first was to make the playoffs. The second was to win the district championship. The third was to have an undefeated season.

Coming off of a 2-8 2011 season, those goals might have seemed to be nothing more than pipe dreams in some peoples’ eyes, but with only one game left in District 32-4A play last week the Eagles were within one win of achieving all three goals. Enter the Mercedes Tigers.
