Nightfall hadn’t yet set in over Mustangs Stadium on Friday before the evening was already over.
Middle Creek trounced Panther Creek 46-14 in their SWAC opener, racing out to a 21-0 lead after just eight minutes. From there, the Mustangs (4-0, 1-0) never looked back.
Defensive tackle Zayvon Powell’s interception on the first play of the game gave the Mustangs the ball at the Panther Creek 11-yard line. DeAndre Jones scored two plays later.
Shortly thereafter, Daniel Jackson recovered a fumble at the Panther Creek 16, setting up Rye Julson’s 7-yard TD run four plays later.
By halftime, the Mustangs led Panther Creek (1-3, 0-1) 36-0, had intercepted three passes, recovered one fumble, blocked a punt and blocked a field goal.
If there was any chance of a comeback, Rasheed Martin squashed it by returning the second-half kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.
