Mallard Creek scored 33 points against a good Butler defense to win it’s home opener vs local rival Butler. Mallard Creek’s passing game took center stage in the Mavericks first win of the season. Most of the Mavericks touchdowns were through the air on Friday night. Butler’s offense struggled to find any consistency moving the ball. But the Butler defense held Mallard Creek’s running game in check for much of the game. After watching the Mavericks offense against Dutch Fork in week 1, I was impressed how the Bulldogs defense played the Creek. That includes multiple 4th down stops. But in the end, not enough offense, penalties, and giving up too many big plays plagued Butler. Mallard Creek, now 1-0-1 will travel to Rocky River next week 9/6. Butler, now 1-1 will also hit the road to visit Richmond High School in Rockingham, NC. Game Images: https://www.2mphotos.com/PrepSports/2019-Butler-at-Mallard-Creek
