The Magnificent Seven has a new team cracking the ranks of Mecklenburg County’s top high school football teams.

Harding High breaks into the rankings at No. 7 after a 20-14 win against Rocky River last week. Myers Park remains the top squad at 3-0, followed by Mallard Creek (2-0-1) and Vance (2-0).

West Charlotte and Olympic, which each took last week off, check in at fourth and fifth, respectively, followed by Ardrey Kell, fresh off a 43-30 win against Independence, remains sixth.

The rankings:
1. Myers Park (3-0). The Mustangs continue their assault on their schedule, blasting South Mecklenburg 47-0 last week. Next is Hough, which is struggling at 1-2.

2. Mallard Creek (2-0-1). The Mavericks were extended by South Carolina power Gaffney before prevailing 27-20. They get a week off to prepare for the I-Meck game of the year against rival Vance.

3. Vance (2-0). The Cougars should be very fresh with a by to get ready for South Meck. Is it a trap game with Mallard Creek looming next week?

4. West Charlotte (2-1). The Lions play struggling Berry Academy after a bye week.

5. Olympic (2-1). Alexander Central is the next opponent for the surprising Trojans, who took last week off.

6. Ardrey Kell (3-1). The Knights racked up a big win against Independence last week with a 43-30 result. Their reward is a bye before starting league play.

7. Harding (3-1). The Rams have a good thing going after beating Rocky River 20-14. Next is a road date at North Mecklenburg.
