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.

APEX - Middle Creek’s push for a return to the volleyball playoffs starts with matches like Tuesday night at Apex Friendship. The Mustangs hope it’s a microcosm of the season – falling behind early, learning from mistakes and finishing strong.
Middle Creek defeated Friendship 3-1 (25-21, 25-14, 18-25, 25-21).

Middle Creek extended its football winning streak over rival Garner with a defensively-driven 30-10 victory Monday night before a packed Mustang Stadium.
The Mustangs (3-0), ranked No. 1 in the N&O area, held the Trojans offense to one scoring drive and played like the veteran, playoff-tested squad that they are.
