DURHAM -- Middle Creek football coach Mike Castellano refused to take the game ball after the Mustangs’ 21-7 win over Northern Durham Friday night. Instead his passed the “trophy” to his assistant coaches. But he’ll take the victory.
“It wasn’t a good first win, but we got the win,” he said. “We played well enough to win and that’s a start. Northern is a good team and we knew they’d come out hard.”
The Mustangs scored all their points in the first half, galloping out of the gate in their first possession of the game.
The team drove 81 yards in 10 plays that culminated in quarterback David Salmon scooting in from the 19 with just 9:32 left in the first quarter.
Running back Naylaan Lopez gave Middle Creek its final two touchdowns with runs of seven and three yards for a 21-0 lead.
Meanwhile, the Mustangs defense held the Knights to 38 first-half rushing yards and intercepted QB Brandon Brown twice, the second a disappointing one in the end zone just before the half.
