Carolina Gridiron Game of the Week - Week 5 Postgame Wrap-up

CHARLOTTE – The rain showers were hit and miss on Friday night, but the Mallard Creek Mavericks were not.  Showing why they were the number one team in the state, the Mavericks defeated the visiting Mooresville Blue Devils 42-3 in I-MECK 4A conference action.

Forcing the Blue Devils into seven turnovers on the night, the Mavericks defense spent most of their time on the evening in their opponent’s territory.  Using an effective pass-rush and solid coverage, Mooresville had a tough time moving the ball.

On offense, Mallard Creek quarterback Andrew Goodman seemed to have his way with the Blue Devil defense, delivering crisp passes to all of his receivers when he wasn’t handing off to Jela Duncan.  Duncan used his lateral quickness to evade the Mooresville defense.  On both sides of the ball, lineman DJ Humphries was in charge and pushed people out of his way the entire night.

Next week, Mallard Creek plays at Lake Norman while Mooresville hosts Vance in conference action.
