Mecklenburg County’s unbeatens are holding their positions in the Magnificent Seven rankings, which has a new team on the list.
Mallard Creek, Myers Park and North Mecklenburg are atop the rankings with glistening 5-0 records, followed by one-loss teams from Butler and Harding, which knocked West Mecklenburg from the rankings. Providence makes its first appearance at No. 6, followed by Vance.
This week’s rankings:
- Mallard Creek (5-0) – Stopped I-MECK rival Vance 27-13. Still looking like the best team in North Carolina, hands down. Next: Lake Norman gets its shot at an upset.
- Myers Park (5-0) – The Mustangs are hot on the Mavericks’ trail after pummeling Garinger 41-0. Next: Rocky River.
- North Mecklenburg (5-0) – How many people can the Vikings’ bandwagon hold during this surprising start? Next: At West Charlotte.
- Butler (4-1) – The Bulldogs may be the best one-team in North Carolina. They’re certainly the best in Mecklenburg County, which is pretty good. Next: Porter Ridge at home.
- Harding (5-1) – The Rams took a large step toward the SoMeck title with a huge win against rival West Mecklenburg. Junior running back Quavaris Crouch is no joke with the rock in his hands. Next: A critical home tilt against No. 6 Providence.
- Providence (4-2) – The Panthers crushed Ardrey Kell 43-13 to crack the rankings. Their prize is a road trip to Harding in a SoMeck showdown that’s the county’s game of the week.
- Vance (3-2) – The Cougars can still make noise in the I-MECK despite last week’s loss to Mallard Creek. Next: An opportunity to recover at Mooresvill
