Yes you could easily just drill a lower set of holes in the L bracket. You would be left with about 1.5" of the bracket exposed over the top which could also be removed fairly easily. That would make it look (and work) much better.
As the bracket sits now you can put the mount on either side so those options are already there.
Then there is the second set of horizontal holes still left over too.
